Migrated to America with her 5 children on the ship John and Mary in 1634

Ship Mary and John Passenger List for 1634

   The Passenger Ship Roster is Only Partly Accurate

The second trip of the Mary and John to colonial America began shortly after March 24, 1633/4, in London. The master was Robert Sayres (or Sayers).

It is not possible to construct a fully accurate passenger ship roster for the Mary and John, as no contemporaneous records have been found. Subsequent lists have been reconstructions and have been found to be full of inaccuracies.

Charles Edward Banks, in The Planters of The Commonwealth in Massachusetts, 1620-1640, Boston, 1930 (p. 87), wrote: "Mary and John, Thomas Chubb, Master. She sailed from Plymouth, England, March 20 [1630], with one hundred and forty passengers from the counties of Somerset, Dorset, and Devon under the patronage of the Reverend John White."

For the voyage that took place in March 1633/4, the Mary and John Clearinghouse has constructed its best estimate of a passenger list. They confess it is only about 60-70% accurate.
