Immigrants to America:

Some Founders of Maine's Campbell and Packard Families

Peter A. Hutchinson

These were some of the earliest European settlers in America, and more specifically, in New England: Massachusetts, New Hampshire, and Maine. A few were with the Mayflower, many more from within Winthrop's fleet and follow-ons during the period 1630-35, during the great migration from England's tumultuous decades leading to the Civil War. In this document, we are looking for when the family lines came to America, and on what ships, and from what part of England (or the Continent) and from which ancestral towns or lineages. We want to know, insofar as is possible these centuries later, why they came: what was their motive? We want to know who they were, what they did for livelihoods, and how they and their progeny made it in their new world.

A note on sources: I have relied on Susan C. Rosier's Mayflower Increasings (2nd Edition, Genealogical Publishing Co., Inc., 1997) for dates and genealogy related to the Plimouth colonists. Names given as passengers on specific ships are from lists published by the Mayflower Society, Olive Tree Genealogy, Genealogy-Quest, and other internet sites who themselves refer to sources such as The Winthrop Fleet of 1630 (Charles Edward Banks, 1930), lists from public record offices in England, and other compilations as research continues and documents are found. GDMNH stands for Genealogical Dictionary of Maine and New Hampshire (Noyes, Libby, Davis: Genealogical Publishing Co., Inc. 1996). Savage stands for his Dictionary of the First Settlers of New-England.


Stephen Bachiler (1561- 1657 or 1660) was born in England, and immigrated to America on William and Francis in 1632, into Boston. An early graduate of St. John's College, Oxford, he was vicar of Wherwell, Hampshire in 1587 and was removed from office as a Puritan. In 1630 he became involved in one of Sir Ferdinando Gorges' settlement attempts and was named as minister to the Plough Company (also known as the Company of Husbandmen), which received a 1600 square mile grant on the coast of Maine to be named as the Province of Lygonia. Bachiler's own departure from England was delayed when the Company's ship Plough sailed in 1631, and when he arrived in Boston found that the first immigrants had foregone settlement in Maine, choosing the Bay Colony instead. Bachiler himself first went to New Town (now Cambridge) and then to Saugus (now Lynn), establishing a church there of remnants of the Plough settlers. Frequently at odds with the Puritan theocracy of Massachusetts Bay, he went on to settle Hampton, New Hampshire, and eventually lived in Portsmouth. He returned to England in 1653 or 1654 after being denied a divorce from an adulterous young wife, and died in Hackney, north London, about 1657.
