Fourteen members of the California Society petitioned their Board of Assistants in 1950 to charter a Hawaii Colony of the California Mayflower Society. There were 29 members when the official charter was presented on December 27, 1951.
Although Hawaii had not yet attained statehood, the Hawaii Colony -- with the interest and assistance of Mr. Lewis E. Neff, the historian general -- became "The State Society of Mayflower Descendants in Hawaii" on August 30, 1958. At this time the Colony had grown, and the new charter listed 44 members. In 2017, we have more than 90 active members, and a number of junior members.
