Migration of the Ibbit family
In an attempt to escape the chaos experienced in England, many English families boarded overcrowded and diseased ships sailing for the shores of North America and other British colonies. Those families hardy enough, and lucky enough, to make the passage intact were rewarded with land and a social environment less prone to religious and political persecution. Many of these families became important contributors to the young colonies in which they settled. Early immigration and passenger lists have documented some of the first Ibbits to arrive on North American shores: Persival, Elizabeth and Anne Ibotson, who sailed to Virginia in 1623. Arthur William Ibbotson sailed to Philadelphia in 1852; Harvey Ibbotson to Philadelphia in 1854.
