In answer to a question concerning the shipwreck 1635 of the Angel Gabriel:
Passenger List for
the Angel Gabriel
<A HREF="http://members.aol.com/dcurtin1/gene/gabriel.htm">Passenger List:
Angel Gabriel 1635</A>
Pemaquid Point Lighthouse built 1827
On the last Wednesday in May, 1635 (May 27th), the ship "Angel Gabriel"
a strong ship of 240 tons, and carrying a heavy armament of 16 guns
swung at her moorings in the King's Road, four or five miles distant
from the city. Her destination was Pemaquid. On her deck was "a company
of many Godly Christians", some from other ships, bound for New England.
The wreck of the bark, Angel Gabriel, a major disaster in the middle of
the "Great Migration". It was wrecked in a great storm, probably a
hurricaine, in August 1635 off Pemaquid Pt. Maine.
According to the "Lighthouses in Maine" site one of the passengers was
a man who left his wife behind planning to send for her after he became
established. Although he survived the wreck, his wife was afraid to
follow him after what had happened to the Angel Gabriel. He was unable
to face the journey back to England, so they never saw each other again.
A visitor to this site has sent me information that the man who was
seperated from his wife was John Bailey who also left behind his son,
Robert, and one or more daughters.
What follows is a partial list of some of the ships passengers that I
have compiled from the internet and other sources. There is, I
understand, a complete list on a plaque at Pemaquid Maine. I intend to
complete this when I obtain the full list. If you have any additions or
corrections to this list please drop me a note.
