The Mayflower of 1620 has to be one of the most influential ships in all human history.
Mayflower truly represents the best of the British and American idealism, courage and sense of adventure.

The Mayflower as in the painting here is a Galleon, English, circa 1620 or more correctly a ‘Race Galleon’, her Captain was from Harwich her most famous voyage was from Plymouth, Devon.
