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 MacAddamss to arrive in North America: Andrew Adams, who arrived in Virginia in 1635; Dorothe Adams, who arrived in New England in 1635; Eede Adams, who came to Virginia in 1638; Christopher Adams, who came to Massachusetts in 1644.
