Location: Weymouth, Massachusetts
Capt. Gorges arranged for the second attempt of a settlement at the same location. The Gorges settlement failed and was also abandoned but was resettled a few years later as Weymouth. Capt. Gorges returned to England when the settlement was abandoned.
Various historians count the number of settlers in the Gorges expedition at "approximately" 120, but no definitive list of settlers has been produced. The list below is an amalgamation from various sources with an intention to create a complete, or as near complete as possible, list of the members of the Gorges party.
