The Great Migration



To escape the unstable social climate in England of this time, many families boarded ships for the New World with the hope of finding land, opportunity, and greater religious and political freedom. Although the voyages were expensive, crowded, and difficult, those families that arrived often found greater opportunities and freedoms than they could have experienced at home. 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 latheburey were among those contributors: Richard Lathberry, who sailed to Virginia in 1652; John Lathbury to Virginia in 1655; Elinor Lathberry to Virginia in 1657; Daniel Lathbury to America in 1680.
