The Great Migration



Gradually becoming disenchanted with life in Ireland many of these uprooted families sailed aboard the armada of sailing ships known as the "White Sails" which plied the stormy Atlantic. These overcrowded ships often arrived with only 60 to 70% of their original passenger list, many dying of cholera, typhoid, dysentery or small pox. In North America, some of the first immigrants who could be considered kinsmen of the Chiltum family name Chiltum, or who bore a variation of the surname were James Chilton who sailed on the "Mayflower" and landed in Plymouth in 1620; and signed the famous compact of the ownerships of the land. He died on December 8th 1620.
