Unfortunately, the majority of them traveled under extremely harsh conditions: overcrowding on the ships caused the majority of the immigrants to arrive diseased, famished, and destitute from the long journey across the ocean. For those families that arrived safely, modest prosperity was attainable, and many went on to make invaluable contributions to the development of the cultures of the new colonies.

in 1635; William Paddy, who arrived in Massachusetts in 1635; John Padey, who settled in Virginia in 1658; John Paddy, who arrived in Boston in 1663.
