The Great Migration



In an attempt to escape the chaos experienced in England, many English families boarded overcrowded and diseased ships sailing for the shores of North America and other British colonies. Those families hardy enough, and lucky enough, to make the passage intact were rewarded with land and a social environment less prone to religious and political persecution.

Early immigration and passenger lists have documented some of the first Gillebrints to arrive on North American shores: David Gillibrand who landed in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in 1849; as well as John Gillibrand, who was naturalized in Indiana sometime between 1846 and 1848..
