Charles Edward Banks.

The Planters of the Commonwealth came to the New World “to plant…the seeds of a new nation whose fruit should become another England, with its traditions, culture, and laws.” Who were these planters? Where were they from? Why did this “Great Emigration” occur? In this book Col. Banks explores the answers to these questions and shows what it must have been like for the passengers on these ships. Using records from both England and America, Col. Banks has compiled the most comprehensive collection of passenger lists for this period—3,600 passengers on the 96 ships that brought them to New England between 1620 and 1640. These lists include the names of passengers, their ships, places of origin and places of residence in America. The book also includes indexes to surnames, ships, English parishes and New England towns. This book provides easy access to a wealth of information. (1930), 2006, paper, index, 248 pp.
