Four Mayflower Passengers

Dorothy May Bradford
James Chilton
Jasper Moore
Edward Thompson

***

The Mayflower anchored off Provincetown Harbor on November 11, and the Pilgrims sent out several expeditions of men to explore the region to seek out the best place to build their Colony. While William Bradford was away on one of these explorations, on 7 December 1620, Dorothy accidentally fell off the Mayflower into the freezing waters of Provincetown Harbor, and drowned. Her son John came to America later, married Martha Bourne, took up residence in Duxbury and later moved to Norwich, Connecticut where he died about 1676, having had no children.

from Mayflower History website.

**
BIRTH: About 1597 at Wisbeech, co. Cambridge, England, likely the daughter of Henry May. MARRIAGE: William Bradford on 10 December 1613 at Amsterdam.
