The Great Migration



For many English families, the social climate in England was oppressive and lacked opportunity for change. For such families, the shores of Ireland, Australia, and the New World beckoned. They left their homeland at great expense in ships that were overcrowded and full of disease. Many arrived after the long voyage sick, starving, and without a penny. But even those were greeted with greater opportunity than they could have experienced back home. Numerous English settlers who arrived in the United States and Canada at this time went on to make important contributions to the developing cultures of those countries. 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 lase were among those contributors:

  • William Lase, who landed in Virginia in 1648

lase Settlers in United States in the 18th Century

  • James Lase, who arrived in Boston, Massachusetts in 1766

lase Settlers in United States in the 19th Century

  • Juan Lase, who landed in Cartagena in 1834
