The Great Migration



To escape the unstable social climate in England of this time, many families boarded ships for the New World with the hope of finding land, opportunity, and greater religious and political freedom. Although the voyages were expensive, crowded, and difficult, those families that arrived often found greater opportunities and freedoms than they could have experienced at home. Many of those families went on to make significant contributions to the rapidly developing colonies in which they settled. Early North American records indicate many people bearing the name Corp were among those contributors:

Corp Settlers in United States in the 18th Century

  • Edward Corp who arrived in America in 1747

Corp Settlers in Australia in the 19th Century

  • John Corp, aged 22, a shoemaker, who arrived in South Australia in 1852 aboard the ship "Sea Park" [1]CITATION[CLOSE]
