The Great Migration



Thousands of English families in this era began to emigrate the New World in search of land and freedom from religious and political persecution.

Research into passenger and immigration lists has revealed some of the very first Darwants to arrive in North America: Peter Darwin who settled in Barnstable Massachusetts in 1822.
