Also, if Samuel in S6 was like, blah blah blah, ancestors chopping heads off vampires on the Mayflower, what were the vampires hoping to find in the US? More places to disperse than on a small island nation? Were they escaping monster persecution in Britain? WERE THEY ALSO PURITAN? (How does Puritanism refract in conjunction with vampirism? Are vampires more inclined to favor a literal interpretation of the Eucharist?)
And if the Men of Letters was originally a British thing (I'm just assuming they originated there because some branch of hunters apparently also did. Native hunters probably operate on a completely different cosmology than most of the hunters SPN has focused on), does that mean there are MoL chapters in other former British colonies/sites of empire and imperialism? Like, is there a Hong Kong MoL? Indian MoL? Australian MoL? And would they operate in tandem with or in colonial opposition to monster hunters/intellectuals already extant in these countries beforehand?
