The Great Migration



Thousands of English families in this era began to emigrate the New World in search of land and freedom from religious and political persecution. Although the passage was expensive and the ships were dark, crowded, and unsafe, those who made the voyage safely were rewarded with opportunities unavailable to them in their homeland. Research into passenger and immigration lists has revealed some of the very first Remintons to arrive in North America: Phillip, Elizabeth and Alice Remington settled in Virginia in 1635; Thomas Remington settled in Barbados in 1669; John Rimmington settled in Virginia in 1754.
