  1. Also including wives of Mayflower passengers who came over later and had descendants living today
  2. Names in Italics are not Mayflower Passengers, but their wife was a passenger.
  3. according to
  4. Italics indicate that the haplogroup result is based on previous testing through other projects (usually HVR only) and may not be precise. In some of these cases, the result could be inaccurate due to inadvertent errors in lineage tracing. See surname sub-pages for further details and references.
  5. Fear had a daughter Sarah, born abt 1626, but no further record has been found. She likely died young.
  6. Bartholomew returned to England and married. He is said to have had at least four children (unknown by which wife) (Isaac, Mary, Dorothy and John), none of these lines have been traced to the present day.
  7. widow of fellow Mayflower Passenger Francis Eaton
  8. widow of _______ Ford
  9. Mayflower Families through Five Generations ("Silver Books") vol. 7 (Browne) lists a small number of female mtDNA descendants of the Sixth generation. It is likely there are still living mtDNA descendants.
  10. For a discussion about the tentative identity of her given name, see her wiki.
  13. daughter of Mayflower passenger Richard Warren
  14. Edward Doty had a first wife, name unknown, but had no (surviving) children by this marriage. It is believed she was the unnamed maid servant to John Carver who (according to Bradford's Of Plimouth Plantationmarried but died shortly afterwards.
  15. She married second, John Phillips
  16. It is believed she was the unnamed maid servant to John Carver. In 1651 Gov. Bradford wrote she "married and died a year or two after". She apparently never had any children.
  17. Francis and Christian had one daughter, Rachel. Rachel married Joseph Ramsdell, but only had one son, Daniel.
  18. She was the widow of William Denby
  19. The Great Migration Begins I:681 states all of Moses Fletcher’s children were by his first wife
  20. There is the possibility that the wife of Edward Fuller was a widow, and mother of Matthew Fuller of Barnstable. More research in England is needed.
  21. Samuel Fuller married first to Alice Glaslock, who died (apparently having no children) by 1613. TGMB I:716
  22. The Great Migration Begins I:716 stated only child of second wife died in infancy
  23. Mayflower Quarterly, Winter 2019, p, 39
  24. Mayflower Quarterly, Winter 2019, p. 39 "Not included but being researched:"
  25. Mayflower Quarterly, Winter 2019, p, 39
  26. Mayflower Families through Five Generations ("Silver Books") vol. 15 (More) lists a handful of female mtDNA descendants of the sixth generation.
  27. This was a bigamous marriage, since his first wife was still living in Salem, MA
  28. Richard More married third, sometime before 23 May 1678 to Jane (_____) Crumton (widow of Samuel Crumton). Richard and Jane had no children.
  29. An article in The Genealogist 10:140 stated Thomas and Alice had three sons and two daughters (Elizabeth [1609] & Margaret [1613]). Bradford's Journal (published under Of Plimouth Plantation reported where "his other children came afterwards... The rest of Thomas Rogers' [children] came over and are married and have many children." However, it is unknown if the daughters were still living at that time, and if they were, there is no further mention of them in any record. It is possible one or both may have married and had families, but their maiden name has been lost. Some researches suggest Elizabeth may have married Samuel Eddy, and Margaret married William Brett of Duxbury & Bridgewater. There are issues with both of these tentative identities.
  30. The only contemporary record for Hannah is the will of her husband, Joseph (in Jan 1677/8). As such, we are not certain whether she was Joseph's only wife and whether she is the mother of any/all of Joseph's children. mtDNA descendants of Joseph's daughters have the ability to ascertain whether they were all likely had the same mother, but even then, it would not prove whether Hannah was the mother or not.
  31. A number of female mtDNA descendants of the Sixth Generation documented in the Mayflower Families through Five Generations "Silver Books" vol. 19 (Rogers). Almost certainly has living mtDNA descendants.
  32. No matrilineal (all female line) descendants of Anne who have joined the GSMD under this line.
  33. died in the first winter, no children
  34. Myles and Barbara had one daughter, Lora. Neither she nor any of her children were mentioned in his will of Mar 1655/6. Thus she almost certainly died unmarried.
  35. She married first, Thomas Rogers
  36. See | Caleb Johnson's profile for John Turner He is known to have had a daughter Elizabeth, who initially remained in Holland, but later emigrated to New England and married (possibly in Salem). But it is currently unknown who her husband was.
  37. Only had two sons by William White. She will also be treated under Edward Winslow
  38. Edward had no children by his first wife
  39. They had one daughter, Elizabeth (c1630-1698). She married (Capt.) George Curwin and Robert Brooks (II). George and Elizabeth had two daughters, Penelope (m. John Wolcott, no known children) and Susanna (m. Edward Lyde (II), only daughter Elizabeth died unmarried)
