The Great Migration to New England 1630-1640 by Douglas Carter
In 1630, Boxted's vicar, Reverend George Philips led 30 of his congregation to join about 700 others from East of England in a hazardous migration to "the Promised Land" of New England on the East Coast of North America.
This book is a valuable resource for tracing relatives from this area of the Stour valley and the village of Boxted.
