Plymouth Rock


There are no historic references to the Pilgrims' landing on a rock at Plymouth. There are two primary sources written by the Pilgrims themselves describing the landing in Plymouth in 1620, William Bradford's journal Of Plymouth Plantation and the 1622 book popularly known as Mourt's Relation. The references state simply that they landed.

Mayflower Pilgrims arrive in the New World

The Mayflower anchored in the Bay of Cape Cod on 21 Nov., 1620, and on 25 Nov. sixteen armed men, "every one his Musket, Sword, and Corslet, under the command of Captaine Myles Standish," were sent ashore for a second exploration. They marched in single file through what is now Provincetown, where they saw several Indians, followed their tracks about ten miles, and spent the night in the woods. Three subsequent expe­ditions were sent out. On the third, after landing in the vicinity of Eastham, they went toward Wellfleet, found an Indian burying-place and Indian houses, and encamped before nightfall at Nanskeket. On the fol­lowing day they were surprised by the Indians, upon whom Standish  fired, but the skirmish was slight.

On 29 Sept., 1621, after the founding of Plymouth, a party of ten men, witch three savages as guides, under com­mand of Standish, who had been appointed mili­tary captain in February, 1621, explored Massa­chusetts bay. They anchored off what is now Thomson's island, which Standish explored and named Trevore. This party also explored the broad plain known as "Massachusetts fields," the gathering-place of the tribes, which comprised a part of what, is now Quincy.
