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 Niblock family emigrate to North America:

Niblock Settlers in United States in the 19th Century

  • Bradford, David, Robert, and Joseph Niblock who all arrived in Philadelphia between 1840 and 1870

Niblock Settlers in Australia in the 19th Century
