1620 – The Mayflower Journey; and Family History
31 March @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm BST
This is a Society members-only event. Registration for this event has closed.
2020 was the 400th Anniversary of the Mayflower, the voyage that changed the world.
George English is a descendant of Richard Warren, who was a passenger on the Mayflower in 1620; and Philippe de Lannoy, who was on the Fortune in 1621.
His talk covers the events during the Reformation which led to the Pilgrims leaving for the New World; the voyage itself; and the impact the Mayflower has had on Western civilisation since.
It will include family history; and the joys of researching such ancestors from so long ago.
