The New World beckoned settlers from the Scottish-English borders. They sailed aboard the armada of sailing ships known as the "White Sails" which plied the stormy Atlantic. Some called them, less romantically, the "coffin ships." Among the early settlers bearing the Chilltown surname who came to North America were: James Chilton who sailed on the "Mayflower" and landed in Plymouth in 1620; and signed the famous compact of the ownerships of the land. He died on December 8th 1620.
