Voyages of the Mary and John to Connecticut

The Mary and John, a large ship of 400 tons, is reported to have taken three voyages out of Plymouth, England(1): These are two suggested passenger lists for the ship Mary & John compiled by authors from a variety of sources. No actual recorded passenger list from the Mary & John has come to light and there remain many questions as to who actually sailed on this ship and who came on subsequent ships.

June, 1607 The Mary & John departed Falmouth, England, for the coast of Maine.
October 6, 1607 The Mary & John left the settlers at the mouth of the Kennebec River (now Sabino, Maine), arriving at Plymouth, England, on December 1, 1607.
1630 Brought 140 passengers to New England from the West Country (counties of Dorset, Somerset, Devon & Cornwall).
About March 26, 1634 The Mary & John departed London for New England.
