Historical Information

One of the best known names in maritime history, the Mayflower is famous for having transported the Pilgrim Fathers from Plymouth, England, to Cape Cod, Massachusetts, in 1620. During the religious oppression in the reign of Elizabeth I of England, two sects formed – the puritans and the separatists. The separatists formed the most consistent contingent on the Mayflower, which under the reign of James I set sail from Plymouth bound for America with 102 men, women and children on the 6th of September, 1620.
