The Great Migration



In an attempt to escape the chaos experienced in England, many English families boarded overcrowded and diseased ships sailing for the shores of North America and other British colonies. Those families hardy enough, and lucky enough, to make the passage intact were rewarded with land and a social environment less prone to religious and political persecution. Many of these families became important contributors to the young colonies in which they settled. Early immigration and passenger lists have documented some of the first Courugges to arrive on North American shores: James Corish, who settled in New York in 1792; John Corish, who arrived in New York in 1841; Elizabeth Corish, who settled in Quebec in 1847; Hilaire Courage, who settled in America in 1847.
