It says here that in Mary Ways book it also says they came on the Mary & John. If she rexerached this and her other family that died and she finshed the book with the information they found, why should we believe what some Mayor says? I looked on the site of the Lyon and there is no Way name mentioned on their passenger list.
This is from another web site, so different websites claim the Mary & John, ws the ship maybe this needs to be researched more.

"Henry Way, called "The Puritan", is the first of the name to come to Colonial America and become a land owner and homemaker. He came to Dorchester, Massachusetts Bay Colony from Bridport in the Parish of Allington, County Dorset, England, on the Mary and John. The intending emigrants assembled at Plymouth and set sail Saturday, March 20, arriving at Nantasket, May 30, 1630.
Henry Way is listed among the passengers on the Mary and john, with six in his party. In addition to his wife, Elizabeth, he had five others with him. Although their names do not appear on any passenger list, it is assumed the five were his children. Later records indicate these children were in and around Dorchester in the years following. Their identity is also supported by the baptismal records secured from St. Mary's Parish records. Bridport.
Henry Way carried on a fishing business from Dorchester and his boat saved the lives of three shipwrecked men off the coast, July 26, 1631.
He was admitted to the church at Dorchester, March 5, 1643."
