The Great Migration



Many English families tired of political and religious strife left Britain for the new colonies in North America. Although the trip itself offered no relief - conditions on the ships were extremely cramped, and many travelers arrived diseased, starving, and destitute - these immigrants believed the opportunities that awaited them were worth the risks. Once in the colonies, many of the families did indeed prosper and, in turn, made significant contributions to the culture and economies of the growing colonies. An inquiry into the early roots of North American families has revealed a number of immigrants bearing the name Hedint or a variant listed above: 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.
