Historical background, ship and castle

I researched much assisted by a great Plymouth citizen the late Bob Brennan, on and off from 1998 to produce this painting.

We reconstructed the port based on period documents including contemporary maps some of which were drawn by French and Spanish spies.

The maps clearly show the castle and other the town defences were manned at that period.

I have based my Mayflower upon a model I built of the 1957 replica designed by William Baker, built at Dartmouth, Devon, sailed to America and generously gifted to the citizens of  the United States of America.

1620? a new nation, a long story although the painting’s story really began in 1998.

Modeling Mayflower

I bought a model of The Mayflower and “The Mayflower And Other Colonial Vessels” by W A Baker [ISBN : 0 85177 286 2], the man who designed the successful 1957 Mayflower replica.
