"Henry Way, called "The Puritan", is the first of the name to come to Colonial America and become a land owner and homemaker. He came to Dorchester, Massachusetts Bay Colony from Bridport in the Parish of Allington, County Dorset, England, on the Mary and John. The intending emigrants assembled at Plymouth and set sail Saturday, March 20, arriving at Nantasket, May 30, 1630.

Henry Way is listed among the passengers on the Mary and john, with six in his party. In addition to his wife, Elizabeth, he had five others with him. Although their names do not appear on any passenger list, it is assumed the five were his children. Later records indicate these children were in and around Dorchester in the years following. Their identity is also supported by the baptismal records secured from St. Mary's Parish records. Bridport.

Henry Way carried on a fishing business from Dorchester and his boat saved the lives of three shipwrecked men off the coast, July 26, 1631.

He was admitted to the church at Dorchester, March 5, 1643."

fishing business. His boat saved three shipwrecked men off the coast on 26 Jul 1631. Two of his boats were lost in 1643, however, 5 men were killed by Indians and two others by drowning.

Henry was from Bridport, Dorsetshire, EN, and his first residence was Dorchester. He was a merchant and was admitted to the second church at Dorchester on 5 May 1643. He could sign his

name, and he pledged to support the Dorchester schoolmaster on 7 Feb 1641/2. He held the office of Fieldviewer on 24 Dec 1645. He was probably related in some degree to George Way, who had many business interests in New England and who made a brief visit to Dorchester."

This is the same Way family that followed the Rev. Lord to SC and then went to St. John's

Parish in Ga. and started the Midway Congregational church there. Aaron and his family went to SC after they were successful in ridding Salem of the Rev. Parrish who espoused the Witchcraft frenzy.
