A collection of historical and genalogical records
I just joined your group and am not sure if this is of any interest. My Douglas line to the Mayflower is (as another researcher put it, by occasional marriages!) I believe the Mother is just as important as the Father.

I am a Mayflower Society member through Anna Louis Janes, wife of George Charles Douglass.
Anna Louise Janes anc, Jonathan Janes married Irene Bradford, Great-Granddaughter of William Bradford, Mayflower imm. and Governor of Plimouth.
I am looking forward to finding more about my Douglas ancestor in Scotland.
Was your mother Eleanor Bancroft Douglass? Her husband was someone named Richardson?
I like to fill in the blanks in my database.
I think I probably "spoke" with you many years ago. Yes, my Mom was Eleanor married to Thurman Richardson. I don't know if I can help but let me know what blanks you are looking for and I'll try to help.
Now I have you hooked into my database. Enough details for now. Yes, we have had communication from time to time. Very useful. Thanks. Ed
Beverley sent me this some time ago:
From the Book THE MAYFLOWER AND THE PILGRIMS NEW WORLD by Nathaniel Philbrick.
The Mayflower returned to England April 5, 1621, made excellent time on return home, Jones & the Mayflower on second voyage went to France with a cargo of salt. The next two years the Mayflower lay idle and became a "rotting hulk". Her subsequent fate is unknown but she was probably broken up for scrap.
