There was no second voyage of the Mayflower that brought
the Pilgrims to America. That Mayflower was caught up in
probate when Capt Christopher Jones died, and its hull
rotted so badly while it was idle that it was broken up
(scrapped) in 1624.
The Mayflower that sailed with the Arbella Fleet 1630 was a
different ship. She put in to Salem.
But the Winthrop Society does not recognize any BABCOCKs
so he wasn't on the 11 ships, or the earlier Higginson
and Endecott Fleets.
who can't find Thomas WETMORE/WHITMORE's ship,
