Families began migrating abroad in enormous numbers because of the political and religious discontent in England.

Among early immigrants of the Rebuck surname to cross the Atlantic and come to North America were: Benjamin Disney Roebuck, who arrived in Philadelphia in 1808; John, John Wood, Nathan, William, William Roebuck all arrived in Philadelphia between 1805 and 1876..
