The Great Migration



The unstable environment in England at this time caused numerous families to board ships and leave in search of opportunity and freedom from persecution abroad in places like Ireland, Australia, and particularly the New World. The voyage was extremely difficult, however, and only taken at great expense. The cramped conditions and unsanitary nature of the vessels caused many to arrive diseased and starving, not to mention destitute from the enormous cost.

An examination of many early immigration records reveals that people bearing the name Judgement arrived in North America very early: Judith Judge settled in New England in 1748; Brian, Charles, Hugh, James, John, Joseph, Michael, Robert, Thomas and William Judge, all arrived in Philadelphia between 1840 and 1860..
