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 Udell or a variant listed above:

Udell Settlers in United States in the 17th Century

  • Christopher Udell, who arrived in Maryland in 1678

Udell Settlers in United States in the 19th Century

  • C. H. Udell settled in San Francisco, California in 1850
  • James Udell settled in Philadelphia in 1862
