The Mayflower

The Story
The Barbican, Plymouth, Devon, England

The Mayflower sailed from here September 16 (New style), 1620, for Plymouth, New England. Part of her passengers were colonists from London, part were a separatist congregation which had begun in Babworth, Nottinghamshire on July 11, 1586, and had moved to Scrooby in 1606, to Amsterdam, Netherlands, in 1608, and to Leyden in 1609. The Leyden group had sailed on the Speedwell from Delft Haven August 1 (N. S.), 1620, for Southampton, Hampshire, England, to join the London group who were on the Mayflower. Both ships left Southampton on August 15 (N. S.), but leaks in the Speedwell forged a turning back to Dartmouth for repairs. Leaving Dartmouth, after proceeding about 300 Miles, the leaky Speedwell caused a second return of both ships, this time to Plymouth. Here the Speedwell was abandoned, and the passengers of both ships combined on the Mayflower - 102. Elder William Brewster was the spiritual leader of the separatist pilgrims, and remained so in Plymouth, New England, until his death in 1643 - 44.

Stephen Hopking of Wooton-Under-Edge, Gloucestershire (Later of St. Mary Matfellon, Whitechapel, London), separatist, made his second voyage to the new world in the Mayflower (160 tons) in 1620. He had previously sailed from here in the Sea Venture (300 tons) on July 23, 1609. He reached Virginia in 1616, after having been driven ashore in Bermuda, where his shipwreck furnished the subject for the Tempest (1611) by William Shakespeare.
