Gov. Bradford gives the following particulars of the company of emigrants who came in this ship called the “Anne”, including his second wife, many of whom where Leiden Seperatists.
"Whereof Mr. William Pierce was Master…They brought 60 persons for the general, some of them being very useful persons, and became good members to the body, and some were wives and children of such as were there already. And some were so bad, as they were faine to be at charge to send them home again the next year…’Robert Cushman had written to Bradford early that year: ‘Our friends at Leyden… will come to you as many as can this time,’ and by the ship Anne he sent another letter, advising Bradford that ‘Some few of your old friends are come, because people press so hard upon us to goe, and often such as are none of the fittest, I pray you write earnestly to the Treasurer and direct what persons should be sent. It greeveth me to see so weake a company sent you.”
