William Penn's Ships - 1681/2

William Penn said that there were 23 ships that that delivered settlers to Pennsylvania with him.

Since travel was difficult in 1680's, it is likely that they sailed from a Port close to home. The ports those ships came from were: London, Bristol, Liverpool, Scarbough (Yorkshire coast), Belfast (Ireland), Cornwall (wsw)

There were no passenger lists but they only kept a list of those with Duty Goods (merchants mainly). These ship are listed in order of arrival dates in Pa.
