Mary Beckett is believed to have been a passenger on the "Anne" in 1623. In the book "The English Ancestry and Homes of the Pilgrim Fathers" by Charles Edward Banks, p 177 in the Chapter "Female Passengers" it reads: "The following women came as passengers in the same two ships and married shortly after arrival:

[The first entry is "Mary Becket married George Soule."]" When the author refers to two ships he is referring to the ''Anne'' and "Little James." It appears the "Anne" arrived 10 Jul 1623. These two vessels traveled across the Atlantic together part of the way but became separated. The "Little James" was the smaller of the two and it arrived "a week or 10 days "after the "Anne." The "Anne" brought 60 persons and the" Little James" is listed as 44 tons.

There was no separate passenger list for these boats.The first boats that brought people to Plymouth Colony appear to be "The Mayflower" in 1620, "The Fortune" in 1621 and "The Anne" and "The Little James" in 1623.
