My Mayflower Ancestors
The pilgrims from whom I can prove descent are:
Mary (Norris) Allerton
Joan (Hurst) (Rogers) Tilley
The majority of my lines go back to John Alden and Richard Warren, thanks to their prolific families. I descend from siblings in many instances.
People who find a Mayflower ancestor, often find more than just one. It isn't surprising - there weren't too many options for marriage in the 1620's. Once the Great Migration began, family trees really branched out (pun intended).
Since I have a bit of a mobile lifestyle, thanks to having a husband in the Air Force, I rely on my own personal library of the Mayflower Society's silver and pink books, as well as NEHGS for my research and documentation of these lines. Ultimately, I would like to get all of my supplemental lines into the Mayflower Society, though that is a rather costly goal.
For now, I am a member through one of my Richard Warren lines (via Mary Warren and Robert Bartlett - just one of many).
I think the paternal lines that ended up in Hancock County, Maine surprised me the most. When one thinks of the Mayflower, they often connect it to Plymouth. Yet, I know Mayflower descendants have certainly migrated much, much farther from Plymouth than just Maine. ;)
