THE GREYHOUND

Another ship which loaded just after the Kent in London was the Greyhound, Joesph Wasey, master. The records show that an unidentified ship g.h. arrived at Wickaco in the Delaware near Old Swedes Church, present Philadelphia, in October, 1677, and this can only be the Greyhound. She loaded from 11 April until 31 May for New Jersey and added later loadings for Virginia. The following passengers can be identified:
