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 Coddes, or a variant listed above: John Coates who settled in Virginia in 1650; James Coates settled in Jamaica in 1679; Mary Coates settled in New York in 1686; William Coates settled in Barbados in 1660.
