12:00pm Friday 27th September 2013 in News
A DESCENDANT of pilgrims who sailed on the Mayflower has returned to the place where it all started.
American Jean Rahaim made a visit to the Harwich Mayflower Project last Friday.
Having researched her family tree she found she was related to John Alden and Priscialla Mullins who sailed on the Mayflower in 1620.
It is thought John is from the Alden family who lived in Harwich.
Jean is visiting Tendring for her daughter Meg’s wedding to Manningtree based Jack Shakespeare last Saturday.
It is very interesting to come and have a look around,” she said.
“It is nice to return to the place where it all started."
