Plymouth rock....supposedly where the occupants of the Mayflower first set foot on American soil....and named after where they sailed from.

See I knows my 'istorty I do!!! ;) ;D

I note there are a lot of west country names around that area.....Taunton, Barnstaple, Weymouth etc.

We know........it says so under your avvy Sean. ;)

Yes......from my understanding Plymouth was the last place they had set foot on British soil, and that's why where they landed in the U.S. was then called Plymouth too.


Anyway.....I thought is thread was supposed to be about WELSH names!! ;D ;D ;D

They were fleeing Religious Persecucion and Tyranical Rule across 5-6 K miles of deeeep Water and were ready for anything.....Don't take a Knife to a Gun Fight (local"s didn't know that) And the Winner is.....the new People and a New Nation that will Feed and Defend Billions of FREE People and keep Them Free.  entering Plymouth,Massachusetts  Sign says  AMERICA's HOMETOWN.....Franky
