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. Among the first immigrants of the name Colpman, or a variant listed above to cross the Atlantic and come to North America were: John Coltman of Wethersfield who came from Sutton Coldfield in Warwickshire, he settled in Springfield Mass in 1644; Ann Coltman settled in Virginia in 1623.
