From "Early New Haven," by Sarah Day Woodward, page 27:The ship "was laden with pease and some wheat, all in bulk, with about two hundred West Indies hides and stores of beaver and plates, worth in all about five thousand pounds. Seventy persons embarked in her, ten of whom were members of the Church. Mr. Thomas Gregson, who was going to England to procure a charter for the colony, Captain Nathaniel Turner, and Mrs. Goodyear, wife of the Deputy Governor, 'a right, godly woman' were among them. In January 1646, the harbor being frozen over, a passage was cut through the ice with saws for three miles, out to the open waters of the harbor. Mr. Davenport and a great company of people went out upon the ice to give the last farewell to their friends. Mr. Davenport made a prayer, in which he said, with marked emphasis 'Lord, if it be thy pleasure to bury these our friends in the bottom of the sea, they are thine, save them." Then the vessel spread it's sails, and began its voyage to England. It was never heard from. Soon after she started a great tempest arose and it was thought she foundered in the gale."
