The Great Migration



For many English families, the political and religious disarray that shrouded England made the far away New World an attractive prospect. On cramped disease-ridden ships, thousands migrated to those British colonies that would eventually become Canada and the United States. Those hardy settlers that survived the journey often went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations in which they landed. Analysis of immigration records indicates that some of the first North American immigrants bore the name Segars or a variant listed above: John Saker who settled in Maine in 1625; Thomas, Marie and Joe Saker landed in Virginia in 1635; Thomas Saker settled in Virginia in 1653; John Seegar arrived in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in 1880.
