      It was one of those Jesuits, Father Andrew White, who wrote a narrative of the voyage in his journal those many years ago indicating it was St. Cecilia’s Day, Nov. 22, 1633, when the vessels finally set sail from Cowes in the Isle of Wight,

      The two ships remained separated for most of the remainder of the voyage. The Ark arrived at Barbadoes in the West Indies on 3 Jan 1633/4, and were joined by the smaller Dove three weeks later. They disembarked shortly thereafter and arrived at Point Comfort in Virginia Colony on 27 Feb 1633/4:

      Here they resupplied the ships, took on more passengers and again set sail—this time north up the Chesapeake Bay, arriving at the mouth of the Potomac River by 3 Mar 1633/4.
