The Pilgrim Fathers

Welcome to the section about the Pilgrim Fathers. You’ll find out about the people who were the Pilgrim Fathers and their families. You’ll also find some genealogy details and links so you can find out if you were related to them.

A surprising number of people can follow their family history back to a Pilgrim Father and the Mayflower. Perhaps you are one of them?

If you really want to live the Mayflower experience, there is a book, the Diary of Remember Patience Whipple. It’s a diary written by a fictional character set in the real history of the Mayflower. If you prefer fact rather than fiction, this true narrative recounts the lives and adventures of the people who made the voyage: The Voyage That Changed the World: The “Mayflower” and the United States of America

Or there is the definitive book by Rev. Dr Harold Kirk-Smith William Brewster – the Father of New England: The Story of the Pilgrim Fathers

If you’re more interested in the religous history behind the Pilgrim Fathers, the following book from Amazon will prove useful The Mayflower Pilgrims: Roots of Puritan, Presbyterian, Congregationalist, and Baptist Heritage If you are interested in the modern-day Barbican and Hoe you can see a Photo Tour from Salt Quay all the way round to West Hoe.
