"ROBERT AND ELIZABETH" PASSENGER LIST 1698

"ROBERT AND ELIZABETH" PASSENGER LIST 1698

Thomas ab Evan, son of Evan ab Evan and his first cousin, William ap John,
left Bala, Merioneth, Wales, in late 1697, preceding the larger group of
emigrants to Philadelphia in order to buy a tract of land from William Penn
for a new (second) Welsh settlement in Pennsylvania. The rest of the Welsh
Company immigrants sailed from Liverpool on 18 April 1698 on the ship Robert
& Elizabeth, Robert Haydock of Liverpool, owner, Ralph Williams, master. It
stopped at Dublin, Ireland, departing there 1 May 1698, reaching
Philadelphia eleven weeks later on 17 (Smith's History of Pennsylvania say
the 7th) July 1698. Thomas ab Evan's wife traveled with "at least 8
children", along with his sister, Sarah, and three brothers Cadwalader,
Owen, and Robert ap Evan and their families, which made a total of 31 from
Evan ab Evan's family. During the voyage, 45 of the passengers, and 3 of the
crew, died of a form of dysentery (the bloody flux). The Robert and
Elizabeth was to have transported 145 people. Howard M. Jenkins in
Historical Collections Relating to Gwynedd believes that some of the total
compliment of passengers may have been servants, hence not noted anywhere.

[10/14/02: It appears that the passenger list for the voyage no longer
exists, and following is a beginning attempt to recreate it. Please let me
know corrections or additions: Beth McMakin: mcmrud@vail.net]
