The Pilgrim Fathers UK Origins Association celebrates and brings together the heritage of the original Separatists in England and the Pilgrim Fathers who settled in Plymouth, Massachusetts.

These separatists, who believed in religious freedom, were led by John Carver of Doncaster, William Bradford of Austefield and William Brewster of Scrooby. Under their leadership they founded Plimoth Colony which was the first settlement in New England and paved the way for the first amendment to the US constitution which is concerned with religious freedom.
