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 Jenetts to arrive in North America: John Jennet, who sailed to Pennsylvania in 1682. Peter Jannett journeyed to Maryland in 1776 and N. Janett sailed to New York in 1823.
