  1. various depositions narrow his birth between Mar 1576-Sep 1576.

  5. Some sources state he also had an infant son Thomas, born/died in 1656, but the chronology makes it unlikely.
  6. "The Pilgrim Migration" p. 391.

DNA Results TBD

Previous testing

Family Tree DNA's Robinson Y DNA Project does not currently list anyone claiming their Most Distant Known Patrilineal Ancestor (MDKPA) was Pastor John Robinson (or a patrilineal ancestor). It is still unknown whether any surviving Patrilineal line exists.

Next Generation Sequence/Whole Genome Sequence testing

NGS/WGS testing of Allerton descendants would further refine the haplogroup assignment for this family.
