THE SPEEDWELL: PASSENGER LIST
   
This list is annotated by the Searcher's office, Gravesend, England, with the date of "30th May, 1656". However, an additional annotation indicates they "were Landed at Boston in N. E. the 27th of the Moneth, 1656. J. E." The list may have been prepared at departure by the Searcher's office or later by the vessel's master, under a high bond as assurance of the accuracy about those actually making the voyage (such lists were dated at arrival and were endorsed at the Searcher's office on return of the vessel). The source listing, however, shows the "J.E." entry as an endorsement after that of the Searcher's office. In this case, the initials "J.E." were not those of the master and the month was not specified. This leaves questions about the month in which the "27th" actually occurred - before, during, or after May.
