The Great Migration



Opportunity and land greeted those who made it all the way. Some had the opportunity to solidify their new freedom by fighting in the American War of Independence, while others went or stayed north as United Empire Loyalists.

A thorough examination of passenger and immigration lists has disclosed evidence of many early immigrants of the name Heminger: Samuel Hemming settled in New England in 1698; Thomas Heming settled in Virginia in 1654; Joe Heming settled in Virginia in 1635.
