    • John Howland came on the Mayflower in 1620 as a manservant of Governor John Carver. William Bradford, in his journal, makes this reference to John Howland on the Mayflower voyage: "In a mighty storm John Howland, a passenger, a stout young man, by a keel of ye ship, was thrown into the sea. But pleased God, he caught hold of ye Topsail Halliards we hung overboard, and run out ye length, yet he kept his hold the several fathoms under water, till he was drawn up by ye rope to ye surface, and by a boat hook and other means got into ye ship."
