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 powerful new nations. Among early immigrants of the Chock surname to cross the Atlantic and come to North America were: Humphrey and John Chick who settled in Barbados in 1654; Sarah Chickley settled in Maryland in 1740; John Chicoll settled in New York in 1822; E. Chick arrived in Acapulco Mexico in 1852..
