Migration of the Hothane family
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 Hothane were among those contributors: John Hotham, who sailed to Virginia in 1715; Richard Hotham to Philadelphia in 1774; Ann Hotham to New York with her child in 1820; and S. Hothan to Savannah, Georgia in 1820..
