The Great Migration



Thousands of English families in this era began to emigrate the New World in search of land and freedom from religious and political persecution. Although the passage was expensive and the ships were dark, crowded, and unsafe, those who made the voyage safely were rewarded with opportunities unavailable to them in their homeland. Research into passenger and immigration lists has revealed some of the very first Cokemanes to arrive in North America: Richard Cockman who sailed to Barbados in 1635; and R. Cookman sailed to Virginia in 1662.
