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 Chisenhall were among those contributors: Martha Chisnell, who settled in America in 1758; Johanna Chisnall, who arrived in America in 1765; Peter Chisnall, who settled in America in 1770; George Chisnell, who came to Allegheny Co., PA in 1880.
