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 for new powerful nations. Some of the first immigrants to cross the Atlantic and come to North America bore the name Chysenhall, or a variant listed above: 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.
