In 1632, a group of religious dissenters known as the Braintree Company sailed on "The Lyon". They settled initially at Mount Wollaston, later renamed Braintree in memory of their home-town. John Bridges, a Braintree resident, founded the school that developed into Harvard University. The ancestor of John Adams, second president, sailed on "The Lyon". John Adam's son John Quincy Adams became sixth president. Further information on "The Lyon" detailing passengers is at Braintree District Museum. (Essex England)
