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 Caupstake or a variant listed above: Daniel Capstick, a bonded passenger, who arrived in Maryland in 1719; Richard Capstick who arrived in Charles Town, South Carolina in 1719; Jonathan Capstick, who was recorded in London, Ontario, in the census of 1871.
