The Great Migration



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 Jeffcoat were among those contributors:

Jeffcoat Settlers in United States in the 19th Century

  • Henry Jeffcoat and his wife Rebecca and three children arrived in New York in 1820

Jeffcoat Settlers in New Zealand in the 19th Century

  • Hannah Jeffcoat arrived in Auckland, New Zealand aboard the ship "Mary Shepherd" in 1870
