The Great Migration



For many English families, the political and religious disarray that shrouded England made the far away New World an attractive prospect. On cramped disease-ridden ships, thousands migrated to those British colonies that would eventually become Canada and the United States. Those hardy settlers that survived the journey often went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations in which they landed. Analysis of immigration records indicates that some of the first North American immigrants bore the name Duxburey or a variant listed above: Robert Duxbury who landed in Philadelphia in 1868; Thomas Duxbury landed in the same port in 1872; John Dewsbury arrived in New Jersey in 1677; William Dewsbury arrived in Philadelphia in 1880..
