  • 2. The mayflower
    • It was the ship that transported the English Separatists, better known as the Pilgrims, from a site near the Mayflower Steps in Plymouth, England, to Plymouth, Massachusetts, in 1620.There were 102 passengers and a crew of 25–30 ages.
  • 3. The mayflower before the Pilgrims
    • About 1607 or 1608, Christopher Jones and several business partners purchased the Mayflower.  Their first voyage in the ship was to Trondheim, Norway, in 1609, to bring back lumber, tar, and fish.
    •  
    • In May, 1620, after returning to London from Bordeaux, France, the Pilgrims made contact with Christopher Jones, and they hired him to transport them to America.
  • 4. The mayflower after the Pilgrims
    • The Mayflower stayed with the Pilgrims in America the first winter, and departed home for England in April, arriving back home in May 1621.  Master Christopher Jones, the ship's captain, died the next year, in March 1622.  Christopher Jones owned a fourth of the ship, and when he died the ownership of his share passed to his widow, Josian. 
    • Josian, with the other three owners, stopped using the ship, and by May 1624 it had fallen into ruins.
