The Women Who Came in the Mayflower

Annie Russell Marble

This book serves as a tribute to the women who travelled on the Mayflower and their companions who later appeared in the novels The Ann and The Fortune and who steadfastly maintained the high standards of family life in the early Plymouth colony. The major goal of the work is to give readers a picture of communal life between 1621 and 1623. It usually functions as a few profiles of specific matrons and maidens whose influence increases the resource in home life and education. The absence of evidence for the facts in the book-many of which contradict one another on specific men and women-might make the reader regret their reading.
