The phenomenon of English migration into and across the Atlantic during the 17th and 18th centuries has only recently come to be taken seriously as a subject worthy of historical investigation. The pioneering work of Norman Tyack on New England is matched by that of Abbot Emerson Smith and Mildred Campbell on white emigration to North American destinations other than New England. The broad subject investigated by Smith is suggested in his book Colonists in Bondage. The book devotes its attention to white migration to the British West Indies as well as to the colonies on mainland North America, and free migration to Colonial British America. Smith draws some conclusions about the trend and scale of servant migration during the two centuries, and identifies the years just before and immediately after the Restoration of 1660 and the period 1770–5 as the two phases of greatest migration.
