Mayflower (Pilgrim Fathers)

Post by shipstamps » Sat Jun 28, 2008 11:00 am

In 1620 the three-masted Mayflower, with a party of 130 English Puritans on board, left Plymouth under the command of Captain Jones of Rotherhithe and reached the coast of North America near present-day Massachusetts after a voyage lasting 67 days. Here the Puritans founded the first permanent English settlement in New England. According to existing records, the Mayflower was originally built about 1590 to carry wine and had a deadweight capacity of 180 tons. On the basis of a model made in 1926 by Dr R.C. Anderson and at present located in the Pilgrim's Hall, Plymouth, Massachusetts, a replica of the original ship was built in 1956. This Mayflower had carrack rigging and generally the appearance of a small galleon. On 17 April 1957 the Mayflower II set sail with a crew of 33 under the command of Captain Alan Villiers from the small fishing port of Brixham in Devon. She left Plymouth on 20 April and reached Plymouth, Massachusetts, after 54 days. While the Mayflower of the Pilgrim Fathers took a direct route across the Atlantic, Mayflower II took a southern route by way of Madeira and the Canary Islands. She covered the distance of 5,500 sea miles in thirteen days less than her famous mother–ship in 1620. - Bangladesh 1976. SG82. Bulgaria SG2867. Great Britain 1970 SG822. Guinea Bissau SG952.
