The Great Migration



For many English families, the political and religious disarray that shrouded England made the far away New World an attractive prospect. On cramped disease-ridden ships, thousands migrated to those British colonies that would eventually become Canada and the United States. Those hardy settlers that survived the journey often went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations in which they landed. Analysis of immigration records indicates that some of the first North American immigrants bore the name Naison or a variant listed above: Gregory Nash, who settled in Salem Massachusetts in 1630; Anne Nash settled in Virginia in 1635; along with Edward her husband; John, Margaret, Mary, Sarah Nash all settled in Virginia in 1663.
