The Great Migration



To escape the unstable social climate in England of this time, many families boarded ships for the New World with the hope of finding land, opportunity, and greater religious and political freedom. Although the voyages were expensive, crowded, and difficult, those families that arrived often found greater opportunities and freedoms than they could have experienced at home. Many of those families went on to make significant contributions to the rapidly developing colonies in which they settled. Early North American records indicate many people bearing the name Hedand were among those contributors: Sarah Heading, who sailed to Barbados in 1659; Richard Hedon to New England in 1684; William Heddon to Georgia in 1753; E. Hedding to New York at the age of 70 in 1823.
