The Mayflower Left England 399 Years Ago Today

On this day in 1620, the Mayflower sailed away from Plymouth, England, bound for America.

The ship held five of my husband's ancestors:

  • Isaac Allerton
  • Mary Norris Allerton, Isaac's wife
  • Mary Allerton, their daughter
  • Francis Cooke
  • Degory Priest
Alas, of these five, only Mary Allerton and Francis Cooke survived that first winter.

Remembering hubby's Mayflower ancestors on this day and honoring their memory.
