As of October 26, 2022:
- Y-DNA Profiles created for all male Mayflower passengers who are known to have living Y-DNA descendants
- Y-DNA Profiles created for all of the sons in-laws and many of the grandsons in-law of Mayflower Passengers who are known to have living Y-DNA descendants
While autosomal DNA tests (such as 23andMe and AncestryDNA) do test for a number of Y-SNPs (with 23andMe reporting Y-DNA and mtDNA Haplogroups) their chip-based testing only documents a limited number of SNPs and can give inaccurate information.
Paternal lineages of Mayflower passengers
Surnames of Mayflower passengers and crew, with links to corresponding Y-DNA results pages, are listed below.
- according to https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Mayflower_Society
- An Asterisk * Indicates the individual had lived at Leiden at some time before emigrating to New England. Many of these were members of John Robinson's congregation, but some were not.
- Most SNP results may still be further refined as more Y-DNA descendants of Mayflower Passengers obtain Next Generation Sequence (NGS)/Whole Genome Sequence (WGS) tests. Italics indicate the haplogroup is merely predicted based soley on STR testing 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.
- Son Bartholomew returned to England where he married and had children. Whether he has any living Y-DNA descendants is unknown. Son Isaac is believed to only have had one son (Isaac) who died without issue.
- based on three daughters and one child of unknown gender, as described at Wikipedia and mayflowerhistory
- known descendants appear to be only via two of his daughters; only one son may have survived to adulthood, and it looks like not much is known about him (Wikipedia says only three daughters survived to adulthood); another potentially useful resource is http://www.coltechpub.com/hartgen/htm/chilton.htm
- son John died young, so no patrilineal descendants.
- Mayflower Increasings:42 (from MD 40:117 and Stratton:274) states he had a daughter Anna (of Colchester, England) filed marriage banns with Thomas Smith of Bury England at Leiden on 12/22 Dec 1618. It is possible they may have descendants living today.
- Believed to be step-son of Edward Fuller and son of Edward's wife (she was also a Mayflower passenger).
- Pilgrim Hall Museum biography of John and Catherine Carver.
- There is a possibility Thomas was married (likely in Leiden) and left a family. Some claim Thomas was the father of Clement English of Salem, MA. More research is needed.
- See Caleb Johnson's MayflowerHistory.com profile of John Turner He may have had other sons, but the name is simply too common to make any serious attempt at documenting his family.
