The Great Migration



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. Among the first immigrants of the name Hodes, or a variant listed above to cross the Atlantic and come to North America were : Adam Hood who settled in New Jersey in 1685; John Hood settled in Lynn, Massachusetts in 1630; Thomas Hood settled in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in 1682.
