== == 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).
