  1. according to https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Mayflower_Society
  2. 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.
  3. based on top 24 scores at Nevgen R1b predictor all falling under P312, with 9 U152 subclades 10 DF27 subclades and 5 L21 subclades. U152 and DF27 are both subclades of Z38841 (which is technically a STR rather than a SNP) so it is likely the Alden family fall under either U152 or DF27.
  4. 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.
  5. based on top 9 scores at Nevgen R1b predictor all falling under Z8.
  6. based on Nevgen R1b prediction of 100% certainty
  7. based on 100% certainty score for 111 STR markers at Nevgen.org
  8. According to the FTDNA Mayflower Project one individual claiming to be a Y-DNA descendant of Richard Warren has done a Y67 STR test and his predicted Haplogroup falls under E-M35 (Nevgen Y-DNA Haplogroup Predictor result 99.97% likely to fall under E1b1b1a1b1a E-V13). However, according to a Geni.com discussion at https://www.geni.com/discussions/197009 an individual claiming to be a Y-DNA descendant of Richard Warren has had a 37 STR marker test and his predicted Haplogroup falls under R1b-M269
  9. Based on 99.97% Certainty at Nevgen.org from 67 STR markers.

Paternal lineages of allied families

Families directly affiliated with Mayflower passengers (e.g. through sons-in-law and some grandsons-in-law of Mayflower passengers) include:


William Pabodie married Elizabeth Alden, daughter of John Alden

John Bass married Ruth Alden

Thomas Delano married Rebecca Alden R-U106>>L48>L47>>FGC60412


Moses Maverick married Remember Allerton. Mayflower Families through Five Generations (MF5G) vol. 17 (Allerton) fails to list any Mavericks in the Fifth Generation.

Thomas Cushman married Mary Allerton


Samuel Sabin married Mary Billington

Joseph Rickard married Rebecca Billington. MF5G vol. 21 (Billington) fails to list any Rickard Y-DNA descendants in the Fifth Generation.

Edward May (later Mayes) married Dorcas Billington

John Martin married Mercy Billington

Richard Bullock was the first husband of Elizabeth Billington

Robert Beere was the second husband of Elizabeth Billington[1]


William and Alice had one daughter, Mercy (born before the May 1627 Cattle Division). Mercy married (Plymouth 21 Dec 1648) Benjamin Vermayes of Boston. Neither Mercy, nor any of her children, were mentioned in Gov. Bradford's 1657 will, so it is assumed she died shortly after marriage, with no surviving children.


(Gov.) Thomas Prence[2]married Patience Brewster

Edmund Freeman (III) married Rebecca Prence and John Freeman married Mercy Prence E-M215>M35>Z827>V257>M81

Nathaniel Mayo was the first husband to Hannah Prence R-P312>DF19>Z302>Z35646>Z8193>FT18289>Z39896[3]

Jonathan Sparrow was the second husband to Hannah Prence

  1. Elizabeth had a third husband, Thomas Patey, but no children by this last marriage.
  2. Thomas and Rebecca had two daughters and one son, Thomas (III). The son Thomas apparently emigrated back to London, England. The Great Migration Begins III:1523 states family letters indicate he had a widow and a daughter, but failed to note any son. Gov. Prence married two more times, but the children by these marriages have no Mayflower ancestry.
  3. based on Big Y-700 result of a descendant of William Mayo of Isle of Wight, Virginia. STR results indicate this family is related to the Rev. John Mayo of Barnstable, Massachusetts. The descendants of William are FT137226+ (a subclade of Z39896), but it is currently unknown if the descendants of Rev. John are positive for this clade.


Ephraim Tinkham married Mary Browne

John Thomson married Mary Tinkham

William Snow married Rebecca Browne


Roger Chandler married Isabella Chilton. They had at least four children; three daughters and a son Samuel. However, Samuel is believed to have died young, so no Y-DNA descendants.

Solomon Leonard married Sarah Chandler

Edward Gray married Mary Winslow

Tobias Payne was the second husband of Sarah Winslow[1]

FULLER, Edward only had two sons

FULLER, Samuel

Henry Sirkman married Bridget (likely a daughter of Samuel Fuller). No Y-DNA descendants in MF5G 10 (Samuel Fuller)

William White only had two sons (Resolved & Peregrine)


The only surviving daughter of Gov. Edward Winslow was Elizabeth, born about 1631 and died at Boston, 23 Apr 1698. She married twice: First (before 1656) to Robert Brooks, then (after his death) 22 Sep 1669 to George Corwin.
