Who was William Sargent?

William Sargent was a Great Migration immigrant who arrived in New England by 1638. The Great Migration includes immigrants to New England who arrived between the Mayflower in 1620 and the beginning of the English Civil War in 1640. The first wave of immigrants consisted largely of Puritans, who left England in search of religious freedom and established the Massachusetts Bay Colony in 1630. Over the next few decades, thousands of people from England, Scotland, and other parts of Europe made the journey to New England, bringing with them their skills, customs, and cultures. The immigrants played a key role in shaping American society and politics, and many of their descendants went on to play important roles in the American Revolution and the formation of the United States.
