The Great Migration



Thousands of English families in this era began to emigrate the New World in search of land and freedom from religious and political persecution. Although the passage was expensive and the ships were dark, crowded, and unsafe, those who made the voyage safely were rewarded with opportunities unavailable to them in their homeland. Research into passenger and immigration lists has revealed some of the very first Heens to arrive in North America: William Henning settled in Virginia in 1654; Michael Henning settled in Charleston in 1766; Thomas Henning settler in Maryland in 1731; Fred, George, James, John, Mathew, Mary, Michael, Nancy, Robert, Sarah and William Henning all arrived in Philadelphia between 1800 and 1860..
