    This table details the roll of passengers of the Elizabeth & Ann, which sailed from London mid-May, 1635, bound for New England. The ship's Master's name was alternatively spelled Robert/Roger Cooper/Cowper/Coop. The ship arrived safe at Massachusetts Bay, although some of the persons listed below may not have debarked. The rolls represent persons who were ready to embark at the date of record, which often preceded the actual sailing by several weeks. Some may have decided not to sail. Some servants may have run away. And there usually was some loss of life among the passengers from disease and malnutrition during the passage.
    This information was transcribed in the 19th century by Michael Tepper from records found in London, the Public Rolls Office, formerly at Carleton Ride.
