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.

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 Dadge were among those contributors: Edward Dagg who settled in Nevis, Massachusetts in 1663; but many Daggs settled in Maryland in the same year. Thomas Daggs had settled in Virginia in 1635..
