Phineas Pratt was most likely his brother. However, they probably did not come together in 1622, as Phineas wrote a detailed account of his first winter in Plymouth (1622-1623), and Joshua is not mentioned. Joshua was, however, listed in the 1623 Plymouth division of land.

The Anne and The Little James (1623)
The Anne and the Little James left England together, and arrived a week or so apart in Plymouth. Most of the passengers were probably on the Anne, as the Little James was smaller and carried mostly cargo.

Arrived: 10 July 1623 (the Anne) and about 10 days later (the Little James) at Plymouth, Massachusetts
Previous Vessel: Weston's ships (Swan, Charity, Sparrow) (1622)
Next Vessel: Jonathan (1623)
