The Angel Gabriel left King's Road in Bristol on 23 May 1635 with her master, John Taylor, along with the James, the Elizabeth (the Bess), the Mary and the Diligence. The James and the Angel Gabriel stayed together while the three faster and smaller boats went on to Newfoundland. The Angel was wrecked off the coast of Maine, but the James made it into Boston, torn and shredded.
The 250 ton Angel Gabriel and her Master Robert Andrews, carrying immigrants and supplies, left in June (other sources say May 23) and wrecked and sunk in a great storm off the coast of Maine while docked at Pemiquid Harbour August 15,1635. Thankfully, the ship had already achieved it's target and loss of livestock and supplies was minimal. The Angel Gabriel was a famous armed Merchant ship and privateer with 16 guns and space for more.
