    Albion's Seed: Four British Folkways in America is a 1989 book by David Hackett Fischer about four groups of people that emigrated from England to the United states and how, he believes, these groups remain relevant socially, culturally and politically in the contemporary United States. The book examines the Pilgrims from East Anglia to Massachusetts, the indentured servants from Southern England to Virginia, the farmers from North Britain to the South, and the Quakers from the North Midlands to the Mid-Atlantic region.
