Heathens were the majority of Pilgrims on Mayflower
Heathens were the majority of Pilgrims on Mayflower

In 1620, 102 travelers-36 Puritans and 66 non-Puritans referred to as "Strangers". the Pilgrims were beset by rivalries and tensions with those they called the Strangers, the secular settlers who accompanied them on the Mayflower. The Strangers were the secular majority of the Plymouth colonists.

White English secular members were 66 of the Mayflower passengers and only 36 were of the Puritan Christians. So the majority of the first settlers of the USA were just regular secular English people who wanted freedom and less government.

Philbrick (2006), pp 104
