You may be interested  ;D in this free book about colonial behavior available online. I am listening to it on librovox. I just heard an interesting anecdote describing a robbery that occurred at Benjamin Franklin's residence! The chapter (Chapter 12) Is on apparel so the author introduced it as an example of what fairly well off people had in their houses in those days. Of course that was over a century after 1620 but it covers that period in detail as well. The colonists, when they first arrived, actually lived in CAVES for a while!

Their cats and dogs were probably quite happy there (caves provide geothermal heat insulation and enabled them to survive for a few winters until they built dwellings).

You won't find too many history books that admit the early colonists were CAVE MEN  ;D. But nevertheless, it is a historical fact.
Chapter 1 of "Home Life in Colonial Days" has the details. 

You can download the book that includes DETAILED accounts of how they grew, processed and cooked their food and manufactured all their clothing, houses, machines, etc. in a sustainable fashion free here:
