My Mayflower Passenger Ancestors

The Mayflower II
at berth in Plymouth, MA

Happy Thanksgiving!

It seems that folks are taking time to post their Mayflower lines on blogs this week as a new meme for the Thanksgiving holiday.  This will be a fun way to compare lineages and find new cousins!

  1. Hello cousin many times over. ;) I love looking at everyone else's lines and seeing how we connect!

    Decided to go ahead and post details on my lines, so I shared 4 posts on my paternal Mayflower lineages tonight. I think I will save the maternal ones for tomorrow.

  2. Heather, great minds think alike!

    I just posted about John Billington, 11th great-grandfather and Mayflower passenger. I too am descended from Isaac and Mary Allerton and am posting on them tomorrow (those are the only two Mayflower families I can claim that I know of).

    Will link you!

  3. Just looked more closely at your Allerton descent, and our common ancestors go down to Mark HASKELL and Martha TUTTLE/TUTHILL. I'm descended from their daughter Elizabeth, who married Jeremiah FITTS/FITZ. Yet another line on which we're cousins. :-)

  4. Heather, here's the link for the entry I just published re my descent from Isaac ALLERTON:

  7. I'm descended from John Howland and Elizabeth Tilley (through my father) and James Chilton (through my mother). See From Maine to Kentucky for the details.

  8. I'm descended from:

    William Brewster,Stephen Hopkins, John Howland,
    John Tilley also dau Elizabeth Tilley, Thomas Rogers and James Chilton.

    The sad thing is that I didn't find these lines until the last few years. When we were living back east and went to Plymouth I had no idea that I had any Mayflower Heritage. I told the kids I sure wished we had a connection little did I know that I would have 7 of them!!!!

  12. THANK YOU everyone! This was so much fun, let's do it again next Thanksgiving. Maybe we can get more participants, too!

  13. Heather, what a great idea for a post. I will have lots of reading to do to find new Brewster, Fuller and Hopkins '├žousins'. Happy Thanksgiving.

    ReplyDelete
  14. What a great idea, Heather! I descend from the Mayflower Fullers, and from Rev. John Robinson. Which inspires me to write on my Dyer blog about John's son Isaac, who emigrated in 1630, was incensed at the persecution against the Quakers, and was fined and disfranchised for his sympathies. By 1665, he became a Quaker himself.
    *runs off to gather snippets and write blog post*

  18. Hello! I do not know if we are related but I too am a descendent of George Soule!

    He's my (greatx11) grandfather

    ReplyDelete
  19. I was able to locate the list again after going through old messenger conversations.

    This is my descendant list.

    -George Soule/Mary Bucket/Beckett
    -John Soule/Rebecca Simmons
    -Rebecca Soule/Edmund Weston
    -Rebecca Weston/Thomas Darling
    -Benjamin Darling/Hannah Harris
    -Joseph Darling/Huldah Cotton Darling
    -Susan Emelina 'Sukey' Darling/Lemuel Cornwell
    -Fairzina Christina Cornwell/William Seely Lish
    -Charlotte Loretta Lish/Josiah Hoskins
    -Josiah Howell Hoskins/Julia Matilda Clark
    -Elma Carrie Hoskins/Dale Eugene Grable [My Paternal great-grandparents]
    -Patricia Grable(maiden name ; she also had two married names: Ballin and Phillips)/Louis Ballin
    -Lewis Ballin/Teresa Bass
    -Brittany (Me)

    It seems that our connection stops at Rebecca Soule and Edmund Weston. Interesting to see that we ultimately descend from the same line though!
