I found where John Chew was on the passenger list on the Charity, before 1624/5 with his wife, Sarah, arriving on the Seafloure. They arrived in Virginia from London.

I found this list and information about the Charity (which I had seen spelled as Charitie before) at

I typed in "the ship Charity" in my Yahoo search engine and this popped up fairly close to the front of the list of 120,000 references.

The Charity was as follows:

Burthen: 100 tons

Passengers to New England:

The Charity, accompanied by the pinnace Swan arrived with 60 men and no provisions: Thomas Morton, later of Mare Mount (Merry Mount) may have been with this group. The new arrivals remained, temporarily at the Plymouth colony, placing a heavy burden on the provisions there.

Also on board these vessels were "some" passengers for Virginia.

The Seaflower, arrived before January 24, 1624/5 from London and arrived at Virginia.

On this Ship and Passenger information list, the passengers from the Port of London on the Seaflower to Virginia: was listed:

Chew, Sarah, February 4, 1624/5 (and others)

John Chew's wife Sarah's last name was "Bond"
