The Great Migration



In England at this time, the uncertainty of the political and religious environment of the time caused many families to board ships for distant British colonies in the hopes of finding land and opportunity, and escaping persecution. The voyages were expensive, crowded, and difficult, though, and many arrived in North America sick, starved, and destitute. Those who did make it, however, were greeted with greater opportunities and freedoms that they could have experienced at home. Many of those families went on to make important contributions to the young nations in which they settled. Early immigration records have shown some of the first Walworths to arrive on North American shores:

  • Hugh Walworth, aged 45, who settled in Maryland in 1774

Walworth Settlers in United States in the 19th Century

  • R S Walworth, who arrived in San Francisco, California in 1850
