What year or years? Depart from what country and arrive at what country?
John, Thomas and Richard Beach arrived in New Haven CT in 1638 from England on the Elizabeth and Ann ship.  Cannot find a manifest.
Thomas Beach was 25 years old when he left Ware, UK. Probably on that same ship were the Richard and Mary Platt family, who already had marriage connections with the Beaches. Their two year old daughter, Sarah, would grow up and marry Thomas later - he was 23 years older than she, and died in 1662 when he was 49 and she was 26. I am descended from their children. She later married Miles Merwin, but died from birth complications twp weeks after their twins, Deborah and Daniel,  were born, May 15, 1670, at the age of 34. My great grandmother on my mother's side was Margaret[Maggie] Adora Beach.Sarah's siblings were Isaac,Mary, John,and Samuel, born in England, and born in America, Epenetus, Hannah, Joseph, and Josiah.

Thank you.  I had in the past, subscribed to the Beach Family Journal and updated some information with Richard Beach.  I am a member of Colonial Dames through another family member but have been trying to trace the Beach line into the colonies.

1638 isn't like modern day. Today we keep every scrap of paper that might prove important and paper is inexpensive. While at some time there might have been a list of the passengers, the chances of that list having survived almost 400 years are incredible and then imagine it's stashed somewhere under the next 400 years worth of paper.
