I got a letter and brochure from a family? company? in Dorset, England advertising their "recently launched venture" during this, the run-up to the 400th anniversary of the Mayflower landing in 2020. They own an old Georgian-era rectory (very large) in Symondsbury, and are offering 4 nights' accommodations with breakfast, lunch, and dinner, plus two full-day tours and one half-day tour, plus a lecture by a local scholar. The tours are mix-and-match, I believe, but their brochure mentions Plymouth, Weymouth, Dorchester, Shaftesbury, Bridport, Wiltshire, Dorset, Devon, and "cheddar caves." (Cheddar cheese is from England.) Many of the immigrants from Old England to New England in the next couple of decades were from this part of England (the southwestern peninsular part.) It sounds like great fun. If you would like more info their web site is www.AngloNewEngland.co.uk - and if you go, please send us some pictures!
The author is an Arizona research historian who enjoys the challenge of looking for Mayflower descendants, hers and anyone else's.
