Mayflower Descents

By Jared L. Olar

August 2008-March 2016

Of the 41 Signers of the Mayflower Compact, my mother's ancestors include William Brewster, John Alden, William Mullins, Richard Warren (two lines, one traditional), Thomas Rogers, James Chilton, George Soule, and Edward Doty. Because John Alden married Priscilla, daughter of William Mullins, all descendants of John Alden are also descendants of William Mullins. We also are descended from Edward Southworth, the Pilgrim of Leiden, Holland, whose widow Alice married William Bradford, Governor of Plymouth Colony, died 1657, also a Signer of the Mayflower Compact. In addition, the same two lines that bring us our descents from James Chilton also bring us a descent from John Winslow, died 1674, younger brother of Edward Winslow, Governor of Plymouth Colony, died 1654, also a Signer of the Mayflower Compact.

William Bradford, 2nd Signer

William Brewster, 4th Signer

John Alden and William Mullins, 7th and 10th Signers

Richard Warren, 12th Signer

Thomas Rogers, 18th Signer

James Chilton and Edward Winslow, 24th and 3rd Signers

George Soule, 35th Signer

Edward Doty, 40th Signer
