Event - Talk on early US settlers (Doncaster)

novelist and historian Sue Allen will be telling members of Doncaster and District Family History Society about the Pilgrim Fathers and Women at their next meeting on Wednesday, June 29, at Doncaster School for the Deaf in Leger Way.

William and Mary Brewster, from Scrooby, and William Bradford, from Austerfield, were among the first party to land in Plymouth Bay, America in 1620 and Bradford later became the second Governor of Massachusetts.

Sue, who will be in costume, was also until recently senior guide with Nottinghamshire-based Pilgrim Tours and delights in guiding modern day ‘pilgrims’ around the Mayflower Trail as she vividly retells their story in the places many of them knew so well.

Admission for non-members is £2.
