1635 Voyage to America


Her husband, John Warner (1615-1679) was a passenger on the English ship Increase, which sailed from London in April, 1635, bound for New England. The ship arrived safe at Massachusetts Bay. Passenger list information was transcribed in the 19th century by Michael Tepper from records found in London, the Public Rolls Office, formerly at Carleton Ride.

He is listed as passenger #56 here, age 20, but his wife, Priscilla Holliman Ward, is not found here. She must have crossed much later (1640?), but she definitely made it to Warwick, Rhode Island as her oldest son went back to England to claim her father's estate. She bore children 1642-1650 there.
