About William Andrews

Immigrant Ships Transcribers Guild Ark and Dove -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Gravesend, England then Cowes, Isle of Wight to St. Clement's Island, Maryland 25 March 1634 Because of persecution by the Church of England, two vessels, financed by Caesilius Calvert, Second Lord Baltimore transported over 100 (perhaps over 300) "adventurers", many of whom were Roman Catholic, to the Colony of Maryland in America. Richard Lowe, was Master of the Ark. Captain Winter commanded the Dove. The ship Ark, was of about 350 ton burden and the pinnace Dove of about 40 ton burden. An account of the landing of the Ark and the Dove follows: "It was March 25, 1634, the initial day of Spring and the first day of the Julian Calendar, as well as the Feast of the Annunciation of the Blessed Virgin, all of which were propitious for joyous and solemn celebration and a memorial day for each Adventurer, who had survived the voyage of 123 days or slightly over four months from the sailing from Cowes to their destination. They selected the larger of three islands lying near the shore of the Potomac not too far distant from the mainland to disembark. To the island they gave the name of St. Clement after the fourth Bishop of Rome. Father White directed several of his retainers to construct a huge cross from one of the native trees. It was hastily hewn together and, on that virgin day of Spring in 1634, led by Father White who was assisted by Father Altham, all the Roman Catholics, and not a few of the Anglicans, gathered for the first sacrifice of the Roman Mass ever to have been celebrated in one of the Original Thirteen English Colonies." * [see reference below] DOCUMENTED LIST OF THE ADVENTURERS ON THE Ark AND THE Dove AND THOSE WHO WERE EARLY IDENTIFIED WITH THE SETTLEMENT.* [see reference below] 1 John Alcome,Altham Transported 2 Thomas Allen Transported 3 William Andrews Transported

  • The account of the Landing of the Ark and the Dove was taken from page 38, and the documented list of adventurers from pages 339-343 of: "The Flowering of the Maryland Palatinate" by Harry Wright Newman. Originally published: Washington D.C. 1961. Reprinted for Clearfield Company, by Genealogical Publishing Co, Inc. Baltimore, Maryland 1998

Another source for a passenger list for the Ark and the Dove is Series II, "Register of Maryland's Heraldic Families", by Alice Norris Parran, 1938. See Maryland Catholics on the Frontier for a link to this listing. For further information regarding the early history of the Maryland Colony, particularly in regard to the Catholic/Protestant question, see Margaret Brent history William Andrews, probably moved to Virginia after 1645, when Richard Ingle, raided the settlement on the St. Mary's river in the name of the English Parliament, which was carrying on a civil war with Charles I. Ingle took the colony by surprise, burned the Catholic chapel, plundered the homes of Catholic settlers, and returned to England with Giles Brent and the Jesuit priests in chains. Governor Calvert fled to Virginia, and the Calverts came close to losing the colony entirely. Most of the Protestants left to become the first settlers in Virginia's Northern Neck, just across the Potomac river. The population of Maryland, perhaps 500-600 people at Ingle's raid, probably dropped to under 100, fewer than had come on Ark and Dove eleven years before. If Maryland was to recover, the province had to start anew.
