Number of pilgrims on the Mayflower
How many pilgrims were there on the Mayflower?
It is important to know that the Mayflower was the Pilgrim ship that in 1620 made the historic voyage from England to the New World. Not too many people know that the Mayflower launched with 102 passengers and a crew headed by Captain Christopher Jones. There were 37 pilgrims on Mayflower. Unfortunately, about half of these emigrants died in the first winter. It is widely known the fact that the majority of them became the settlers of Plymouth Colony in what is these days Massachusetts.
