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 lanrichs to arrive in North America: Robert Langredge, who settled in Barbados in 1634; as well as John Langridge, who settled with his wife Lydia and two children in New York in 1822.
