St. Jehan

    The only passenger ship list that we have from this era comes from the St. Jehan, which left France on April 1, 1636.  We find 3 of the passengers on this ship in the 1671 census.  
     This page gives you a transcription of the passenger list, as well as a graphic of the list itself (large graphics may take a while to load).
