The Great Migration



Thousands of English families in this era began to emigrate the New World in search of land and freedom from religious and political persecution. Although the passage was expensive and the ships were dark, crowded, and unsafe, those who made the voyage safely were rewarded with opportunities unavailable to them in their homeland. Research into passenger and immigration lists has revealed some of the very first Holomans to arrive in North America: Christopher Holliman, who sailed to Virginia in 1653; William Hollyman to Virginia in 1656; John Holliman to Virginia in 1701; and Margret Holleman to Alabama in 1851..
