The Great Migration



Many English families tired of political and religious strife left Britain for the new colonies in North Ameri ca.

Once in the colonies, many of the families did indeed prosper and, in turn, made significant contributions to the culture and economies of the growing colonies. An inquiry into the early roots of North American families has revealed a number of immigrants bearing the name Satterwite or a variant listed above: James Satterthwaite settled in New Jersey in 1678.
