Who were the Pilgrims?
The first pilgrims began as a religious group. The Separatists which is what they called themselves, felt that the only way to practice their faith was to separate from the church of England. The passengers who arrived on the first four ships were called new comers. The ships included the Mayflower (1620) the Fortune (1621) the Anne and Little James (1623).

Pilgrims were people who traveled for religious reasons. They went to churches, shrines, and other religious sites that were regarded as destinations for such trips, travellin…g along roads that carried large numbers of such people to the same places. Many went to the Holy Land, but there were others who went to places closer to home. Many, perhaps most, of them went because they were religious and believed it was a good thing to do so. There were doubtless others who traveled because it was fun to do so, because they wanted an excuse to see places far from home, or for whatever reason. There is a charming book in which such people are described in some detail, and though it is fiction, it is especially worthwhile reading both because it was written by a person with first hand information and because it is one of the greatest pieces of literature written in English. It is the Canterbury Tales, by Geoffrey Chaucer.
The pilgrims where those who migrated for religious reasons , they settled in Plymouth.
The pilgrims were people from England that didn't want to be ruled by religious belief. They sailed over to the "unknown" land. They just wanted to escape the religious ruling…. They were puritans.
