The Great Migration



For many English families, the political and religious disarray that shrouded England made the far away New World an attractive prospect. On cramped disease-ridden ships, thousands migrated to those British colonies that would eventually become Canada and the United States. Those hardy settlers that survived the journey often went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations in which they landed. Analysis of immigration records indicates that some of the first North American immigrants bore the name Kinmen or a variant listed above: John Kinman, who settled in America in 1741; Andrew Kinman, who came to New York in 1822; Margaret Kinmond, who came to Ontario in 1832; C. W. Kineman, who arrived in San Francisco in 1852.
