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 Hoseefalls to arrive in North America: Luke Horsefall, who sailed to America in 1729; John Horsfall to Philadelphia in 1844; and John Horsfall to Allegheny County, Pennsylvania in 1884.
