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 Thomlynson or a variant listed above: Edward Tomlinson who settled in Virginia in 1637; along with Joanne, and John; Mathew Tomlinson settled in St. Christopher in 1635; Peter Tomlinson settled in Barbados in 1635.
