Transcript of The Pilgrim Fathers

History of The Pilgrim Fathers In 1620 one hundred Puritans boarded the ‘Mayflower’ bound for the New World. These people were the Pilgrim Fathers. The Pilgrim Fathers saw little chance of England becoming a country in which they wished to live. They viewed it as un-Godly and moving from a bad to worse state. The Pilgrim Fathers believed that a new start in the New World was their only chance. The Pilgrim Fathers Mayflower Pilgrims (US), or Pilgrim Fathers (UK), is a name commonly applied to early settlers of the Plymouth Colony in present-day Plymouth, Massachusetts, United States. Their leadership came from the religious congregations of Brownist English Dissenters who had fled the volatile political environment in the East Midlands of England for the relative calm and tolerance of 16th–17th century Holland in the Netherlands. Concerned with losing their cultural identity, the group later arranged with English investors to establish a new colony in North America. The colony, established in 1620, became the second successful English settlement and later the oldest continuously inhabited British settlement in what was to become the United States of America. The Pilgrims' story of seeking religious freedom has become a central theme of the history and culture of the United States.

The crew consisted of 34 men, captain was Christopher Jones. As this was the time of autumn storms, there was on board a full inventory of sails for easy, medium, and heavy weather. Inside the cargo hold there was a 30 feet long launch intended for future reconnaissance trips. The cargo hold chock-full with all kinds of goods served also as accommodations for the passengers at night and during heavy weather. Overhead space was so low that an adult was unable to stand up.
