Join Stephen O’Neill, Executive Director of the Hanover Historical Society, for this free virtual program on the life of Peregrine White (1620-1704). The son of William and Susanna White, Peregrine was born on the Mayflower while it was anchored in Provincetown Harbor. His life paralleled the growth of Plymouth Colony, from the early years of its settlement to its absorption by Massachusetts Bay in 1691. Mr. O’Neill is the author of a new biography of Peregrine White, published by the Marshfield Historical Society in 2020.
Visit the Plymouth Antiquarian Society’s Facebook page to tune in at 1 p.m. on Saturday, April 3rd. The broadcast will be recorded and shared after the event for later viewing as well.
About the First Saturday History Tour Series:
2021 marks the 400th anniversary of the first full year of European settlement at Plymouth. On the first Saturday of each month the Pilgrim Society and the Plymouth Antiquarian Society will present a series of free, virtual programs exploring “firsts” in local history, some well-known and others less familiar. Stepping into a new decade of partnership, the two organizations will broadcast thematic tours of Burial Hill and other historic sites in Plymouth.
