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 Hilden were among those contributors:

Hilden Settlers in United States in the 19th Century


  • Mrs. L. Hilden to San Francisco in 1862 with her child

Hilden Settlers in United States in the 20th Century
