Concord was the name of the ship that carried the first German immigrant group from Europe to America, composed of 13 Mennonite-Quaker families of Krefeld. The ship left the Thames harbor at Gravesend on 24 July 1683 and after a difficult journey of two and one-half months arrived safely at Philadelphia on 6 October 1683. It carried a complement of 40 crewmen and 120 passengers.
