Nearly Wordless Wednesday - Winthrop Fleet Puritan Ancestors

Our ancestors, Thomas French and Susan (Riddlesdale) French of Assington, Suffolk, England, arrived in New England with their children as passengers on the Winthrop Fleet in 1630 and settled in Ipswich, Massachusetts.


The Winthrop Fleet was a group of eleven sailing ships under the leadership of John Winthrop that carried approximately 700 Puritans plus livestock and provisions from England to New England over the summer of 1630.
