The Great Migration



At this time, the shores of the New World beckoned many English families that felt that the social climate in England was oppressive and lacked opportunity for change. Thousands left England at great expense in ships that were overcrowded and full of disease. A great portion of these settlers never survived the journey and even a greater number arrived sick, starving, and without a penny. The survivors, however, were often greeted with greater opportunity than they could have experienced back home. These English settlers made significant contributions to those colonies that would eventually become the United States and Canada. An examination of early immigration records and passenger ship lists revealed that people bearing the name Copstake arrived in North America very early: Daniel Capstick, a bonded passenger, who arrived in Maryland in 1719; Richard Capstick who arrived in Charles Town, South Carolina in 1719; Jonathan Capstick, who was recorded in London, Ontario, in the census of 1871.
