VOYAGE OF THE MARY & JOHN, 1630 On 20 March 1630 the sailing ship Mary & John departed Plymouth, England, with 140 passengers. After a journey of 70 days, the ship arrived at Nantasket in New England (Massachusetts) on 30 May 1630, two weeks before the Winthrop Fleet arrived. The ship's captain refused to sail up the Charles river as planned, because he feared running the ship aground in waters that he had no charts for. He instead left the passengers in a desolate locale, at the mouth of what is now Boston harbor, miles from their intended destination. The settlors were forced to transport 150,000 pounds of livestock, provisions and equipment 20 miles. The families were all recruited by the Rev. John White of Dorchester, Dorset. Nearly all of these families came from the West Country of England, i.e. counties of Somerset, Dorset and Devon. These people founded one of the first towns in Massachusetts, Dorchester, 1630, and one of the earliest in Connecticut, Windsor, five years later.
