The Mayflower was the ship that transported the English Separatists, better known as the Pilgrims, from Plymouth, England to Plymouth, Massachusetts, United States, in 1620.
There were 102 passengers and a crew of 25–30. The vessel left England on September 6, 1620 and after a grueling 66-day journey marked by disease, which claimed two lives, the ship dropped anchor inside the hook tip of Cape Cod (Provincetown Harbor) on November 11. The Mayflower was originally destined for the mouth of the Hudson River, near present-day New York City. However, the Mayflower went off course as the winter approached, and remained in Cape Cod Bay. On March 21, 1621, all surviving passengers, who had inhabited the ship during the winter, moved ashore at Plymouth, and on April 5, the Mayflower, a privately commissioned vessel, returned to England.
In 1623, a year after the death of captain Christopher Jones, the Mayflower was most likely dismantled for scrap lumber in Rotherhithe, London.
