Departure:

The Mayflower left Plymouth, England on September 6, 1620 carrying 102 passengers, including 3 pregnant women and a crew of unknown number.

Arrival:

The Mayflower crew sighted land off Cape Cod on November 9, 1620 and first landfall was made November 11, 1620

Distance and time:

The voyage from Plymouth, England to Plymouth Harbour is about 2,750 miles, and took the Mayflower 66 days.

Births and Deaths:

Elizabeth Hopkins gave birth to a son which she named Oceanus.  After the Mayflower had arrived and was anchored in Provincetown Harbour off the tip of Cape Cod, Susanna White gave birth to a son, which she named Peregrine (which means "one who has made a journey"). 

 

The Mayflower then sailed across the bay and anchored in Plymouth Harbour.  There, Mary Allerton gave birth to a stillborn son.  One passenger died while the Mayflower was at sea--a youth named William Butten, a servant-apprentice to Dr. Samuel Fuller.  The death occurred just three days before land was sighted.  One Mayflower crew member also died at sea, but his name is not known.
