Isaac and Mary Stearns journey across the Atlantic Ocean continues slowly with a scarce wind, calm sea and a close dampness that has persisted the entire journey.
I have been writing little snippets of their journey this week enticing you to join me on the Anniversary of the Arbella’s arrival to the Bay Colony. Three hundred and eighty three years ago on 12 June 1630 the; courageous and somewhat discouraged passengers aboard the Arbella reached their designated port of what is now called Salem, Massachusetts.
I am putting out a cry to the “Ancestral Cousins” of the Arbella passengers to join me at the
Salem Maritime National Historical site

Come celebrate the anniversary arrival of the Arbella. Come join me and sense the spirit of the brave soul with a cornerstone of faith that brought them across the unknown seas to the savage ridden wilderness that was the colony in 1630. What did they find at the end of the rainbow? The Pot of Gold or did they return to England on the next ship?
Here is a link to the passenger list to see if you are one of those braves souls;
This list gives you the name where they were born and where they settled once they arrived.
