Origin of the Fortune Passengers

It is believed that the majority of the passengers of the Fortune were gathered together in London by Thomas Weston and his partner.  According to author Charles Banks, individual records show that sixteen of the passengers can definitely be assigned to London or districts of the city such as Stepney and Southwark.  Ten more passengers, whose origins cannot be determined, either died early or left the colony as determined by who was listed in the 1627 Division of Cattle, which also doubled as a type of census.
