The Pilgrim fathers put into Dartmouth's Bayard's Cove, en-route from Southampton to America. They rested awhile before setting off on their journey in the Mayflower and the Speedwell on the 20th August 1620. About 300 miles west of Land's End, they realised that the Speedwell was unseaworthy and returned to Plymouth. The Mayflower departed alone to complete the crossing to Cape Cod.
