It arrived unexpectedly and without significant supplies, thus further stressing the colony. Upon return to England, the Fortune was carrying £500 of cargo to pay off the Pilgrims' debt, but it was captured by the French en route.

Arrived: 9 Nov 1621 at Plymouth, Massachusetts, shortly after the first Thanksgiving
