Those who were hardy and lucky enough to make the passage intact were rewarded with land, opportunity, and social environment less prone to religious and political persecution. Many of these families went on to be important contributors to the young nations of Canada and the United States where they settled. Sackvils were some of the first of the immigrants to arrive in North America: Thomas Sackville arrived in Philadelphia in 1805.
