Migration of the Jaget family to the New World and Oceana

At this time, the shores of the New World beckoned many English families that felt that the social climate in England was oppressive and lacked opportunity for change. Thousands left England at great expense in ships that were overcrowded and full of disease. A great portion of these settlers never survived the journey and even a greater number arrived sick, starving, and without a penny. The survivors, however, were often greeted with greater opportunity than they could have experienced back home. These English settlers made significant contributions to those colonies that would eventually become the United States and Canada. An examination of early immigration records and passenger ship lists revealed that people bearing the name Jaget arrived in North America very early: John Jagger settled in New England in 1770; William, Charles, George, John and Thomas Jagger settled in Philadelphia between 1840 and 1860; Jeremy Jagger settled in Wethersfield in 1637.
