The Great Migration



Many English families tired of political and religious strife left Britain for the new colonies in North Ameri ca. Although the trip itself offered no relief - conditions on the ships were extremely cramped, and many travelers arrived diseased, starving, and destitute - these immigrants believed the opportunities that awaited them were worth the risks. Once in the colonies, many of the families did indeed prosper and, in turn, made significant contributions to the culture and economies of the growing colonies. An inquiry into the early roots of North American families has revealed a number of immigrants bearing the name Parloh or a variant listed above: Elizabeth Barlow who settled in Virginia in 1698; and Henry Barlow settled in Virginia in 1623; Abraham, Alfred, Ashton, Benjamin, Charles, Edward, George, Henry, James, John, Noah, Robert and Thomas Barlow, all landed in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania between 1771 and 1863.

Motto



The motto was originally a war cry or slogan. Mottoes first began to be shown with arms in the 14th and 15th centuries, but were not in general use until the 17th century. Thus the oldest coats of arms generally do not include a motto. Mottoes seldom form part of the grant of arms: Under most heraldic authorities, a motto is an optional component of the coat of arms, and can be added to or changed at will; many families have chosen not to display a motto.

Motto: En foi prest
Motto Translation: Ready in faith.
