Pilgrims and Ancient Church:

Lists of Pilgrims and other Non-Conformists in Holland circa 1600-1630

The Pilgrim Fathers--the Leyden period.

The Pilgrim Fathers having been exiled from England sought refuge in Amsterdam a decade before voyaging to the New World.

They had only stayed in Amsterdam a short while when John Robinson, their leader, moved his congregation from Amsterdam to Leyden. Some authors suggest that some members of the Ancient Exiled English Church came with the Pilgrims to Leyden.

The Ancient English Church, also exiled to Holland, was founded by one Francis Johnson. He developed an infamous reputation and his church was split into three factions the Johnson, the Ainsworth and the Symth.

The purpose of the following pages is to explore the possibility that some of the Pilgrim fathers had first been members of the infamous Ancient Church. [Return to top]
