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. Although the passage was expensive and the ships were dark, crowded, and unsafe, those who made the voyage safely were rewarded with opportunities unavailable to them in their homeland. Research into passenger and immigration lists has revealed some of the very first Epperleys to arrive in North America: Elizabeth Apperly who landed in New England in 1654 and died in 1663. John Apperley arrived in Barbados in 1654 and later moved to the mainland.
