Le Havre, Upper-Normandy, France

"The Batt family left LeHavre aboard the "Mary Ann", an American vessel under the command of Capt. Arthur Child. It had been built by Joseph Clark, the first full-rigged ship built at the Waldoboro, Maine, shipyard, and registered on 28 October 1835... On 29 November 1836, occurred the single most well known event in the history of the Batt family. The story has become a legend...On that date, ... the ship was suddenly hit by a violent tropical storm of hurricane severity....During the fury of the storm, the "Mary Ann" was stripped of sails, lost several masts, and began to leak dangerously."

"In this hour of extreme peril, Joseph Batt once again turned to the Blessed Virgin to safeguard the journey of the family. Invoking the name of Our Lady Help of Christians, Star of the Sea, he made a solemn vow that if he and his family were to arrive safely in America, he would build a chapel there in her honor."

The ship arrived in New York City on February 2, 1837. 84 days later.
