The English Ancestry and Homes of the Pilgrim Fathers Who Came to Plymouth on the Mayflower in 1620, the Fortune in 1621, and the Anne and the Little James in 1623
By Charles Edward Banks
This critically acclaimed work has biographical sketches of 112 passengers who sailed on the first four ships to New England. Along with data on the passengers' origins, family connections and later histories, it substitutes proof for guess-work and blows holes in many cherished traditions. The author gives first the historical evidence, then follows a list of the passengers on the Mayflower, Fortune,Anne, and Little James. These are dealt with, one by one, and the little known facts about their place of residence in England and their parentage and ancestry are given.
