Massachusetts Bay Company

The following are the known adventurers (founding investors) of the Massachusetts Bay Company from the time of the granting of the Royal Charter, 1628, to the sailing of the fleet of 1630. The Company was what we now would call a closely-held corporation, and almost all the investors, as well as we can determine, can be classed among about an half-dozen groupings by pre-existant ties of family, business, vicinity of homes, or cooperation in Puritan religious and political activities and causes. Of 127 known adventurers, about a third emigrated with their families to New England between 1628 and 1640. Many of the others sent some of their children to take up residence on the lands they claimed[i].

On 20 Mar 1630, he immigrated to America aboard the Mary and John, sailing from Plymouth, co. Devonshire, England.  The ship was among the group called the Winthrop Fleet.  The ship, which was also known as "Mr. Ludlow's Ship", arrived at the Massachusetts Bay Colony on 30 May 1630.  He was one of the first settlers of Dorchester, Massachusetts[ii].

The adventurers who established families in the new Commonwealth before 1633 are not listed here, because information about them may be found elsewhere[iii]. They are Simon Bradstreet, William Codington , William Colbron , Samuel Cole , Thomas Dudley , John Endecott , Rev. Francis Higginson , Roger Ludlow , Increase Nowell , Abraham Palmer , Rev. George Phillips , William Pyncheon , Edward Rossiter , Sir Richard Saltonstall , Samuel Sharpe , Rev. Samuel Skelton , Elias Stileman , William Vassall , and John Winthrop[iv] .

Generally speaking all these adventurers were successful London businessmen, or landed gentry from the Counties of the eastern coast or the southwest of England --- the same areas which had long been the stronghold of Christian reformism, and where the Puritan armies were later mustered by Cromwell. The Massachusetts Bay Company cannot be regarded in the same light as earlier commercial American ventures, as its motivation was primarily religious and political in the context of the brewing Puritan Revolution. The donations of these adventurers were generous enough to found and sustain the Colony, and their only recompense was a claim to some raw wilderness acreage --- not vast estates, but just sufficient (granted usually at 4 to 8 acres per pound sterling[1]) to make a living should the time come when flight from murderous, inquisitional religious and political persecution be necessary[v].

As it came about, around 1640 the reformist Christian forces in Parliament began to prevail, and flight from England was no longer necessary. Many of the adventurers listed below were prominent in the English Revolution[vi].

[1] The pound sterling in those times had the purchasing equivalent of $1000 of today's coin, based on a skilled 17th century English craftsman's day's wage of one shilling, and the ha'penny price of a loaf of bread or a pint of beer. Thus this raw undeveloped land was valued at about $125 to $250 per acre. The adventurers donated between £50 and £400 each.
