Join us on our Virtual Voyage as we explore 17th century Dorking, the picturesque Surrey town once home to the shoemaker William Mullins and his family.
Six people from Dorking travelled on the Mayflower headed by businessman William - who brought with him 250 shoes and 13 pairs of boots.
His teenage daughter Priscilla was also on board, and her later marriage to the ship’s Cooper John Alden - despite the overtures of soldier Myles Standish - and their children mean millions of Americans can trace their lineage to this family and pretty English town.
We’ll visit the original home of the Mullins family in Dorking, thought to be the only surviving home of a Mayflower passenger in England.
Dorking is a quintessentially English town in Surrey, home to six Mayflower passengers including William Mullins - his house still stands in the town today
