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 Munforthes to arrive in North America: Richard Mumford, who settled in Virginia in 1624; William Mumford settled in Lynn Massachusetts in 1630; Henry Mumford settled in New England in 1671.
