The Great Migration



Many English families tired of political and religious strife left Britain for the new colonies in North Ameri ca. Although the trip itself offered no relief - conditions on the ships were extremely cramped, and many travelers arrived diseased, starving, and destitute - these immigrants believed the opportunities that awaited them were worth the risks. Once in the colonies, many of the families did indeed prosper and, in turn, made significant contributions to the culture and economies of the growing colonies. An inquiry into the early roots of North American families has revealed a number of immigrants bearing the name Cartea or a variant listed above: William Cart, who settled in Virginia in 1654; as did Mary Cart in 1741; J.J. Carte, who came to New England in 1793 with his wife and two sons, and James Carte, who arrived in Philadelphia in 1848..
