The Great Migration



In an attempt to escape the chaos experienced in England, many English families boarded overcrowded and diseased ships sailing for the shores of North America and other British colonies.

Early immigration and passenger lists have documented some of the first Sytangwicks to arrive on North American shores: William and Robert Strangway settled in Maryland in 1750.
