Even though Susanna Copley belonged to a very well-respected family, they were still forced to flee Boston before the beginning of the war. Although they chose to go to England, along with many others, some Loyalists chose other distant places, such as Canada or the Caribbean. Although they generally remained within the British Empire, these relocations were a struggle.
