The Great Migration



To escape oppression and starvation at that time, many English families left for the "open frontiers" of the New World with all its perceived opportunities. In droves people migrated to the many British colonies, those in North America in particular, paying high rates for passages in cramped, unsafe ships. Although many of the settlers did not make the long passage alive, those who did see the shores of North America perceived great opportunities before them. Many of the families that came from England went on to make essential contributions to the emerging nations of Canada and the United States. Research into various historical records revealed some of first members of the Lepich family emigrate to North America: Edward Lappage, who arrived in Maryland in 1681; Andrew LePage, who arrived in Prince Edward Island in 1806; Frederick Lepage, who was recorded as the shipping agent for St. John's in Newfoundland in 1829.
