Migration of the Herrapp family to the New World and Oceana


Families began migrating abroad in enormous numbers because of the political and religious discontent in England. Often faced with persecution and starvation in England, the possibilities of the New World attracted many English people. Although the ocean trips took many lives, those who did get to North America were instrumental in building the necessary groundwork for what would become for new powerful nations. Some of the first immigrants to cross the Atlantic and come to North America bore the name Herrapp, or a variant listed above: Thomas Harrop who settled in Annapolis Maryland in 1726; James Harrop settled in Boston Massachusetts in 1768; Hugh Harrop settled in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in 1834.
