1634 Voyage to America


He was a passenger on the 1st Voyage of the English ship Elizabeth, which sailed from Ipswich in April, 1634, bound for New England. The ship arrived safe at Massachusetts Bay. Passenger list information was transcribed in the 19th century by Michael Tepper from records found in London, the Public Rolls Office, formerly at Carleton Ride. Note the ship sailed in April 1634, but the passeger listed is dated six months later to November 1634. Do not confuse this list with the second voyage of the Elizabeth made in 1635.

On the 1634 passnger list are found John (#22) and Phoebe (#23), with sons John (#86) and Samuel (#87), left Ipswich, England in April, 1634 aboard the ship Elizabeth, bound for New England. Settled in Watertown, MA. Also listed is Thomas (#88) - age 15, who is probably a younger brother to John. The passenger list puts John's age at 30 - supporting a birthdate of 1604.
