Mayflower (1620)

The Mayflower was the ship that transported the first English Separatists, known today as the Pilgrims, from Plymouth to the New World in 1620. There were 102 passengers, and the crew is estimated to have been about 30, but the exact number is unknown.

                          The names of those which came over first, in ye year .1620.

                                 and were (by the Blesing of God) the first Beginers, and

                                 (in a sort) the foundation, of all the plantations, and

                                   Colonies, in New England. (And their families.)

The story begins with John Doggett, born in England about 1602 in Groton, Suffolk, England.

He was an early Massachusetts settler, arriving with Governor Winthrop about 1630, and relocating to Martha's Vineyard about 1648.

It is thanks to Thomas Daggett that we have the Mayflower connection -- his wife Elizabeth Hawes was the great granddaughter of John Howland of the Mayflower.

Thomas died in 1691 at the age of 61. It is Thomas who started using the name Daggett instead of Doggett.
