n 1775 is was the start of the American War of Independence.  Napoleon rose to power in France. but found he met
his match in 1815 at the Battle of Trafalgar against Nelson and Wellington.  It was the middle of the Industrial Revolution
in England.  It was the year of the birth of my G.G.G.Grandfather, John Blackwell (10)

More Information
Although John Blackwell  (10) did not come to America, his son George (10.2) and subsequently his grandchildren did.
By the time John (10) had reached the age of 13 (1788) the first load of Convicts set sail to Australia    At the time,
the British Government was going through drastic changes, and some of their policies caused hardships for the common people.
It was a difficult time for Britain and the opportunity to leave was met with excitement and promise.  It was also at the time
that American and Canadian business and Government was doing everything in their power to lure immigrants to open the new
land.  British subjects were preferred due to their political system and language.
