Pilgrim Fathers

The passenger list for the ship Mayflower in 1620 numbered 102, including an infant born during the voyage. Most of the passengers were travelling as families. Passengers who were travelling with their parents can be removed from the list as "duplicates" on grounds that they themselves are descendants of the heads of families and all their descendants are also descendants of those heads of fathers. Wives who were travelling with their husbands are removed from the list as "duplicates" on grounds that their descendants are also the descendants of their husbands. The result is this list of 26 Pilgrim Fathers from whom documented descent is required for membership of the General Society of Mayflower Descendants.
