Migration of the Patil family

A great wave of immigration to the New World was the result of the enormous political and religious disarray that struck England at that time. Families left for the New World in extremely large numbers. The long journey was the end of many immigrants and many more arrived sick and starving. Still, those who made it were rewarded with an opportunity far greater than they had known at home in England. These emigrant families went on to make significant contributions to these emerging colonies in which they settled. Some of the first North American settlers carried this name or one of its variants: Christopher Pottle, who settled in Massachusetts in 1679; James Pottle, who sailed to America in 1756; Joseph Pottle, who arrived in Boston in 1762; and O. Pottle, who settled in San Francisco in 1851..
