GEB MD 18,I,2+) Proof of the name of the ship that brought these first pilgrims is found in the fourth page of the first volume of
the Plymouth Colony Records of Deeds wherein  Governor Bradford writes “The fales of their grounds which came first over in the Mayflower according as thier loses were cast .” (1623) 

 

Bradford further tells us that her burden was “about nine score.” Additional studies determined her master to be Christopher Jones.

 

(GEB) ” Between 1620 and 1630 a ”Mayflower,” or “Mayflowers,” crossed the seas three times. One in 1620 carried the Pilgrim Fathers to New Plymouth; one in 1629 carried Higginson’s party to Salem; and one in 1630 carried Winthrop’s party to Charlestown. It has generally been assumed that these three voyages were made by the same ship; but the strong probability is that the voyages of 1629 and 1630 were not made by the ship that sailed in 1620.” According to Bowman the name Mayflower for ships was uncommonly common, with numerous ships of that name trading from numerous ports abroad. 

 

(Hotten) William Trevore and ____Ely,  two crew members; are commonly, but incorrectly reckoned in the number of the first company of passengers for the Colony; BRADFORD himself says: “Two other seamen were hired to stay a year; when their time was out they both returned.” Accordingly he says of the Mayflower company: “These being about a hundred souls, came over in the first ship.” Afterwards he adds: “Of these one hundred persons who came over in this first ship together, the greatest half died in the general mortality, and most of them in two or three months’ time.” Omitting those two hired sailors who returned, and counting the person that died and the child that was born while on the passage as one passenger, we have the exact number—one hundred of the Pilgrim Company, “who came over in the first ship.” And, as fifty-one died the first season, this enumeration makes good those other words of the historian, that,”the greater half died in the general mortality.”
