The Great Migration



Gradually becoming disenchanted with life in Ireland many of these uprooted families sailed aboard the armada of sailing ships known as the "White Sails" which plied the stormy Atlantic. These overcrowded ships often arrived with only 60 to 70% of their original passenger list, many dying of cholera, typhoid, dysentery or small pox. In North America, some of the first immigrants who could be considered kinsmen of the Harritt family name Harritt, or who bore a variation of the surname were Mr. Harriet who settled in Charles Town [Charleston], South Carolina in 1820; Roger Harriet settled in South Carolina in 1822; Andreas Herriot who settled in Maryland in 1743.
