Event description
A service to commemorate the four young children from Shipton Parish who were banished to America on the Mayflower.

About this Event

Cousins Katharine More from Larden Hall and Samuel More from Linley Hall were required to marry by their fathers so that the two estates could be amalgamated. Katharine later claimed a pre-contract (betrothal) with Jacob Blakeway. After the birth of her fourth child, she was accused of adultery and the four children sent to America on the Mayflower. A plaque in the Church shows how young they were and that only one, Richard, survived.
