The Society of Mayflower Descendants in Delaware welcomes you to its website. We are one of fifty-two societies in the United States and Canada formed under the auspices of the General Society of Mayflower Descendants which was founded at Plymouth, Massachusetts in 1897. Our membership consists of individuals who have proven their descent from one or more of the passengers who sailed from Holland and England to New England in the fall of 1620 aboard the ship Mayflower, and established an English colony there at a place they named Plymouth, located in what is now Massachusetts. Thirty-seven men and fourteen women of the original 102 passengers aboard the Mayflower have descendants, and genealogists estimate that today, almost four hundred years later, there are over twenty million living persons who descend from those twenty nine Pilgrims.
The voyage lasted for 66 days.
There were 102 settlers that completed the voyage.
The ship is estimated to have weighed 180 tons.
The ship's length was approximately 113 feet long.
The keel was about 64 feet with a board width of about 25 feet.
