The Great Migration



To escape the unstable social climate in England of this time, many families boarded ships for the New World with the hope of finding land, opportunity, and greater religious and political freedom. Although the voyages were expensive, crowded, and difficult, those families that arrived often found greater opportunities and freedoms than they could have experienced at home. Many of those families went on to make significant contributions to the rapidly developing colonies in which they settled. Early North American records indicate many people bearing the name Chipnam were among those contributors: John Chipman who sailed from Barnstable in Devon in England who sailed aboard the "White Angel" in 1650; he married Elizabeth, daughter of John Howland who came over on the "Mayflower." John Chipman was a representative of the General Court of the first colony.
