Delfshaven originated in 1389, when the Delfshavense Schie was dug to give the city of Delft a connection with the Maas. Since then, the ships have been able to reach the Nieuwe Maas from Delft via the Delftse and Delfshavense Schie. The harbor town of 'Delfshaven' arose around the lock. It had the status of a 'Colony of Delft'. A setback in growth took place when, at the end of the Hoekse and Kabeljauwse quarrels (around 1490), the Hoeken caused enormous destruction. In the early sixteenth century, Delfshaven had just over 100 houses and 400 inhabitants.
Historical Delfshaven has gained worldwide fame due to the fact that the Pilgrim Fathers, from Leiden, came to Delfshaven at the end of July 1620 to leave a few days later, on August 1, with the seagoing ship Speedwell for the English Southampton. From there they left for America with another ship, the Mayflower. The church in Delfshaven later took over the name and has since been called the Pilgrims Father Church. However, according to tradition, the Pilgrims never entered it!
