Mayflower Genealogy Abstracts Also See Books You Can Reference To enable a quick glance at Mayflower Family descendants/ancestors, we are compiling brief abstracts of the Pilgrim families as captured by George Ernest Bowman or other data and updated to the extent possible by more recent works available to us. Please note that there may be inaccuracies in existing published data; new data waiting in the wings, so to speak; a transcribing error or so; and likely recently published genealogical data that further examines these early families whether to new conclusion or in support of earlier data. The American Genealogist, The New England Historical & Genealogical Historical Society, The Mayflower Society nationally and at the state levels, particularly the Massachusetts Mayflower Society, and the more prominent Genealogical Publishers are among the pacesetters in publishing accurate, updated information on the early families. Enjoy!
The Mayflower was the ship that in 1620 transported 102 English Pilgrims , including a core group of Separatists , to New England. Their story is one of travail and survival in a harsh New World environment. Early history When and where the Mayflower of the Pilgrim voyage of 1620 was built is not known, but it is not improbable that she was launched at Harwich in Essex county, England, and although later known ‘of London’, she was designated as ‘of Harwich’ in the Port Books of 1609-11.
