Richard Palgrave came to the America's on board the Winthrop Fleet from Stepney, Middlesex County in 1630 ten years after the Pilgrims, bringing with him his wife and his daughters, Mary and Sarah. Winthrop Fleet passengers were motivated to make their move by their need to "practice their religion free from the persecution of the Crown- Church of England." About one- third perished during or soon after their voyage. Richard Palgrave came at the same time as George Alcock and their children married. Both were doctors, George Alcock settling in Roxbury and Richard became the first medical man established in Charlestown. He was a member of the Boston church with his wife, pew Nos. 105 and 106; They did not transfer their church memberships to Charlestown. He requested admission as a freeman October 19th 1630, and took the oath 18th May 1631. Died: Charlestown, Mass., 1656.
