Mayflower Surnames

The ship called 'The Mayflower' sailed from Plymouth on September 6th, 1620 to establish the first new colony in New England on the west coast of North America. There were 102 passengers, of which about a quarter were Puritans escaping religious restrictions. The 'Pilgrim Fathers' landed at Cape Cod in December and founded the settlement of New Plymouth in Massachusetts. About half of them died during the first winter but their situation improved after they were helped by the Indians.

These were the surnames of the families listed as passengers by the captain, Master Christopher Jones.
