The Great Migration



To escape the unstable social climate in England of this time, many families boarded ships for the New World with the hope of finding land, opportunity, and greater religious and political freedom. Although the voyages were expensive, crowded, and difficult, those families that arrived often found greater opportunities and freedoms than they could have experienced at home. Many of those families went on to make significant contributions to the rapidly developing colonies in which they settled. Early North American records indicate many people bearing the name Stainey were among those contributors: Ruth Staines who settled in Barbados in 1691; William and Mary Staines settled in Maryland in 1775; Charles Staines settled in North Carolina in 1674.
