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 Mummford were among those contributors: Richard Mumford, who settled in Virginia in 1624; William Mumford settled in Lynn Massachusetts in 1630; Henry Mumford settled in New England in 1671.
