Mary and John
On March 20, 1630, the ship, under the command of a Capt. Squeb or Squibb, sailed from Plymouth, England, with 140 emigrants from western England. It arrived at Nantasket, near present-day Hull, Massachusetts, on May 30. The passengers went ashore and founded Dorchester, Massachusetts. The voyage, along with an 11-ship flotilla led by John Winthrop that departed England in April 1630, greatly fortified the two-year-old Massachusetts Bay Colony.
It made a similar voyage in 1633, bringing more emigrants from England to Massachusetts.
