Leaving Woodchurch: Emigration from Woodchurch since the Seventeenth Century


Click on the front cover above to Look inside

Leaving Woodchurch is an extensive and thoroughly-researched history of emigration from the village at various times since the 1600s. Sometimes this was by choice, sometimes from economic hardship, and occasionally (in the case of transportation) as an imposed punishment. Leaving Woodchurch describes what it was like to sail halfway around the world to a new life, the conditions the emigrants found in their adopted country and how their lives were ultimately changed. Spanning over 400 years, this comprehensive 104-page, A4 booklet, written by members of the Woodchurch Ancestry Group, is illustrated throughout and includes chapters on the changing population of the village, the social conditions that often led to emigration and stories of the Woodchurch families who sought new lives in America, Australia, New Zealand and Canada.
