The Life of Peregrine White


In stock



Trace the journey of Peregrine White, who was born aboard the Mayflower, through a lifespan that paralleled the history of Plymouth Colony itself in a new 2020 book by local historian Stephen C. O’Neill, published by the Marshfield Historical Society. Peregrine White came of age during Plymouth Colony’s formative years and outlived its demise by nearly a decade. Drawing on a wide range of archival sources, O’Neill traces the many facets of White’s life, from colonial childhood to his military career and late-in-life religious awakening. What emerges is a fascinating portrait of a 17th-century American shaped by an evolving settler society.

Softcover. 117 pages.
