Did Allen Bread/Breed arrive in the Winthrop Fleet, and should he be PGM?

+3 votes
Allen Bread  AKA Breed is said by Cutter to have arrived in the Winthrop Fleet in 1630.  However, Anderson did not add him as a featured profile to the ''Great Migration'' series.  Allen Bread, of Lynn, is mentioned in several other profiles, but has none of his own.

My questions: 1) Was Allen Bread/Breed a passenger on the Winthrop Fleet? (checked the Winthrop Society's website ... no Allen Bread/Breed)

2)  (I suppose this depends on the answer to #1), but should he be included in the PGM Project?

Thank you in advance!

Wether he arrived with Winthrop or not is not relevant to our definition of PGM. He need only have arrived between 1621-1650. Clearly if he was here in 1638 for the land division, then he was here before 1650, and was not born here, so immigrated after 1621. So definitely PGM.

As for Cutter, I only believe him, after I've double checked his information. But someone else may have said so before Cutter, and someone may have stretched the truth. And I don't think the online lists are complete.

Anne, for now we're going with 1620-1640; when we complete that range, we can extend to 1650.

In either case, Allen Bread/Breed is PGM.

Interesting - I thought it was 1620-1640, but before I answered the question I double checked to make sure I was remembering correctly.

Thank you!  You have definiitely answered my questions, and you are both the greatest.
Thanks, Anne B., I don't typically manage the page that lists all the projects and didn't realize it had the 1650 date on it. I've edited it.

Jillaine, yes
