The Great Migration



Thousands of English families in this era began to emigrate the New World in search of land and freedom from religious and political persecution. Although the passage was expensive and the ships were dark, crowded, and unsafe, those who made the voyage safely were rewarded with opportunities unavailable to them in their homeland. Research into passenger and immigration lists has revealed some of the very first Wuidestockes to arrive in North America: Robert Woodstock arrived in St. Christopher in 1635; John Woodstock arrived in Maryland in 1775.
