The Great Migration



Many English families tired of political and religious strife left Britain for the new colonies in North America. Although the trip itself offered no relief - conditions on the ships were extremely cramped, and many travelers arrived diseased, starving, and destitute - these immigrants believed the opportunities that awaited them were worth the risks. Once in the colonies, many of the families did indeed prosper and, in turn, made significant contributions to the culture and economies of the growing colonies. An inquiry into the early roots of North American families has revealed a number of immigrants bearing the name Chysnall 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.
