*, ** - A. J. Van Laer has recorded these persons as sailing on this ship (Lancour source #83);
E. B. O'Callaghan has recorded the same persons sailing in
The Faith, December 1659, (Lancour source #86).
[The names have been recorded at this site on both lists until further documentation is found to support claim one way or the other. See ** below, which adds to the confusion.]
** - A. J. Van Laer adds this additional notation: In the original, the date for the first ten names recorded [**], is 1661, while for the last the last ten names [*], the date has been changed from
1661 to 1660. Inasmuch as The Faith sailed again from Holland March 24, 1662, it is evident the correct date should be December 23, 1660.
