1630, THE WINTHROP FLEET consisted of The Flagship "Arabella" and 10 other ships.
The first five ships sailed April 8 from Yarmouth, Isle of Wight, and arrived at Salem June 13 and following days. The other half of the fleet sailed in May and arrived in July at various dates. Altogether they brought about seven hundred passengers during "the Great Emigration". On one of these ships was THOMAS PAINTER Destination:Boston and Hingham in Massachusetts and Mrs. KATHERINE PAINTER.
The following is from "The First Frontier" by David Horowitz,:
Chapter 2 entitled "Magnalia Christi Americana":
"On a summer day in 1630, the board of directors and the major stockholders of the Massachusetts Bay Company arrived in Boston to take possession of their recently founded colony. On board their flagship, the Arabella, Governor John Winthrop proclaimed a frontier covenant between God and the colonizing force: "We shall finde that the God of Israeli is among us, when tenn of us shall be able to resist a thousand of our enemies, when hee shall make us a prayse and glory, that men shall say of succeeding platacions; the Lord make it like that in New England."
These settlers were a more substantial group than their Pilgrim predecessors. Reformist rather than radical in religion, they were from the landed gentry and commercial classes. Their settlement at once supplanted Plymouth as the dominant colonial authority in the north."
Whether Thomas and Katherine Painter were on the flagship "Arabella", or one of the other ships, is not known at this time.
"The First Frontier" by David Horowitz, published by Simon & Schuster, New York is an extremely interesting book about the Indian Wars. Anybody interested in America's early history might want to read it.
