From a Rotherhithe quayside, near a pub called the Shippe, the Mayflower set sail for America. It was the spring of 1620, on board were a group of Protestants fleeing religious persecution. known as, the Pilgrim Fathers. The Mayflower and its crew returned to Rotherhithe in 1621.
A century later the Shippe was rebuilt and renamed the Spread Eagle and Crown. In 1957 the pub was restored. In recognition of its historic connection with America, it was renamed the Mayflower. It is licensed to sell both US and British postage stamps, having been a post office for the river.
