The Great Migration



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 Holeyoach were among those contributors: William Holehock arrived in New York in 1715; John Hollyoke arrived in Virginia in 1767; William Hollyhoag arrived in Pennsylvania in 1866; Edward Holyoke settled in Lynn Massachusetts in 1630..
