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. Those families hardy enough, and lucky enough, to make the passage intact were rewarded with land and a social environment less prone to religious and political persecution. Many of these families became important contributors to the young colonies in which they settled. Early immigration and passenger lists have documented some of the first Wouldpings to arrive on North American shores: William Woodfine, with his wife Elizabeth and son William, who settled in Barbados in 1679. In Newfoundland, Richard settled in St. John's in 1783; Richard settled in Devil's Cove in 1821.
