    1. The ship of Jaume Ferrer departed for the River of Gold on the 10th of August of 1346, the feast of St. Lawrence.

      The Black Plague began in 1346. Throughout my readings on the Black Death I found out that Majorca (the city Ferrer was from) was not affected until 1348. Jamume Ferrer's crew would have had time to avoid the Bubonic plague if they did not disappear at sea.

    1. The 1620 agreement (first called the Mayflower Compact in 1793) was a legal instrument that bound the Pilgrims together when they arrived in New England. The core members of the Pilgrims' immigrant group were Separatists, members of a Puritan sect that had split from the Church of England, the only legal church in England at that time. Others in the group, however, had remained part of the Church of England, so not all of the Pilgrims shared the same religion.

      The Mayflower compact was a signature sheet that would be used for the signers to go to America for religious freedom.
