Bridget William Sarah Ann Henry

William Palmer and his son William were passengers on the the ship 'Fortune'. This ship followed closely on the heels of the Mayflower of 1620. The ship Fortune arrived at Plymouth on November 9, 1621, just a few weeks after the First Thanksgiving. The passenger list is based on the 1623 Division of Land, the passenger list compiled by Charles Edward Banks in Planters of the Commonwealth, by material published occasionally by Robert S. Wakefield in the Mayflower Quarterly, and by the information found in Eugene Aubrey Stratton's Plymouth Colony: Its History and Its People, 1620-1691.

William's wife Frances arrived on the sister ship 'Anne'. The ship Anne arrived in Plymouth in July, 1623 accompanied by the Little James, bringing new settlers along with many of the wives and children that had been left behind in Leyden when the Mayflower departed in 1620. This ship passenger list is reconstructed from the 1623 Division of Land, the passenger list compiled by Charles Banks in Planters of the Commonwealth, and the research found in Eugene Aubrey Stratton's Plymouth Colony: Its History and Its People, 1620-1691.

Burial: Evergreen Cemetery Stonington New London County Connecticut, USA
