Term: English immigrants in Wisconsin

Definition: Most English immigrants came to the U.S. singly or in family groups in the 19th century though several organized movements did sponsor settlement in Wisconsin. Groups such as the British Temperance Emigration Society and the Potters Joint Emigration Society and Savings Fund sponsored several settlements in Wisconsin, including Montello in Marquette county and Scott and Fort Winnebago in Columbia county.
