Passingers of the Plain Jane
To Virginia, May 1635

NEHGS April 1848
Passengers for Virginia


We are again anabled to lay before our readers a list of early emigrants to Virginia. It has just been recieved from our correspondent in London, H. G. Somberby, Esq., but the precise locality off the original record, he does not advise us.It is probally from the same source as that we gave in the last Register; (pages 112 and 113) namely, the records "in the custody of the Master of the rolls.

These passengers, though they shipped to go to Virginia, it is quite probable that intended to come to New England, It might have been difficult for some of them to have obtained permission to come heae, while no objection might be made ot there going to Virginia. Were we to enter into an examination of the list we doubt not we could show pretty conclusively that a large number of the persons names in it were not long after found in New England. At present we can only draw attention to the following names: -- Arthur Peach, was here in 1637m and in the war aginst the Pequots. And though he turned out to ba a wretch, commited mmurder and was executed in 1638, Winshiip says he was a young man of a good family." There was a Thomas Arnold at Watertown, 1640, John Northy, Marblehead, 1648; Thomas Hall, Cambridge, 1648. Thomas Bulkely, Concord, 1638; Rowley, 1643. This is a mere glince at a few of the names, and we do not pretend that they are the same individuals as those represented on our list. Some we think are, and others may prove to be so. --Ed.

15th May 1635. These under written names are to Virginia: imbarqued in the Plaine Joan, Richard Buckman Mr. the pties having brought attestation of their conformitie of the orders & disipline of the church of England.
