Richard More

  • Are you planning on traveling to England this summer? If so, this is a list of where some of our Pilgrim ancestors lived.

  • Pilgrim Richard More, was one of two male children on the Mayflower who started family lines in America and yet were too young to sign the Mayflower Compact. (The other was Henry Samson.) Richard is further interesting as the Pilgrim who, landing with the Separatists in Plymouth on the South Shore, went on to become a genuine Puritan, an inhabitant of Salem on the North Shore.

It reads: HERE / LYETH BURIED / Ye BODY OF CAPT / RICHARD MORE / AGED 84 YEARS / DIED 1692 / A MAYFLOWER / PILGRIM. The erroneous date and "a Mayflower Pilgrim" are later additions.
