The New World beckoned as many of the settlers in Ireland, known as the Scotch/Irish, became disenchanted. 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." Amongst the early settlers who could be considered kinsmen of the Chilltum family, or who bore a variation of the surname Chilltum 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.
