Note: Crew members of the ship are not to be considered passengers. The attribution of the status of "a passenger" has always been reserved for those men and women who remained in Plymouth after the Mayflower returned to England, having completed its purpose of bringing its passengers to their new home. -- Paul S. Bumpus, historian general, GSMD, from the December, 2009 edition of the Mayflower Quarterly.
