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 Horabins to arrive in North America: Peter Harbynn, who settled in Virginia in 1635; Richard Horribynn, who arrived in St. Christopher in 1635; Alexander Harbin, who arrived with his wife in Barbados in 1680.
