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 lasingtons to arrive in North America: Thomas and Fanny Lessington and their son and daughter, who arrived in New York on May 8, 1858 aboard the "Isaac Webb" from Liverpool, England.
