The Great Migration



Many English families left England, to avoid the chaos of their homeland and migrated to the many British colonies abroad. Although the conditions on the ships were extremely cramped, and some travelers arrived diseased, starving, and destitute, once in the colonies, many of the families prospered and made valuable contributions to the cultures of what would become the United States and Canada. Research into the origins of individual families in North America has revealed records of the immigration of a number of people bearing the name Gilpyn or a variant listed above: Anthony Gilpin, who settled in Barstable, Massachusetts about 1640; Jane Gilpin settled in Virginia in 1652; Dynes, George, John, Thomas, and William Gilpin settled in Pennsylvania between 1807 and 1860.
