Pilgrims and Adventurers


Essex (England) and the making of the United States of America.

In stock


No English county has stronger links with the East Coast states of America than Essex. Profusely illustrated and eminently readable, Pilgrims and Adventurers traces these links and in so doing highlights some of the crucial roles played by Essex people, both those who migrated and those who remained at home, in the founding and development of the colonies which in 1783 won independence as the United States of America.

John Smith is a senior archivist in the Essex Record Office. A product of Leicester University Department of English Local History, his published work includes eight titles for the Essex Record Office series.
