The Great Migration



The New World beckoned as many of the settlers in Ireland, known as the Scotch/Irish, became disenchanted. They sailed aboard the armada of sailing ships known as the "White Sails" which plied the stormy Atlanti c. Some called them, less romantically, the "coffin ships." Amongst the early settlers who could be considered kinsmen of the Emison family, or who bore a variation of the surname Emison were Ellis Emerson, his wife Anne, and son Thomas (who was the scion of one of U.S. most distinguished families), settled in Virginia in 1623 from Durham; William Emerson settled in Virginia in 1618 before the "Mayflower".
