The Great Migration



Families began migrating abroad in enormous numbers because of the political and religious discontent in England. Often faced with persecution and starvation in England, the possibilities of the New World attracted many English people. Although the ocean trips took many lives, those who did get to North America were instrumental in building the necessary groundwork for what would become for new powerful nations. Some of the first immigrants to cross the Atlantic and come to North America bore the name Cartes, 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..
