Yes, that's my understanding too. People talked more rural than modern RP at the time of the pilgrims, so the American accents have things in common with rural English accents. Like pronouncing the 'r'. Which towny English Brits then lost.

I was v. impressed by Stephen Fry's Burnley accent on QI a few weeks ago. Spot on. His (Rochdale) Andy Kershaw was impressive too.
