Mayflower Ancestors


I always want to know this when Thanksgiving arrives....so  now it's here....we have several other Mayflower Lines..

John Howland was born about 1599, probably in Fenstanton, Huntington.  He came on the Mayflower in 1620 as a manservant for Governor John Carver.  During the Mayflower's voyage, Howland fell overboard during a storm, and was almost lost at sea--but luckily for his millions of descendants living today (including Presidents George Bush and George W. Bush, and Mrs. Theodore Roosevelt) he managed to grab ahold of the topsail halyards, giving the crew enough time to rescue him with a boathook.
Elizabeth Tilley was born in 1607 in Henlow, Bedfordshire, the daughter of John and Joan (Hurst)(Rogers) Tilley.  She came with her parents on the Mayflower in 1620.  Both her parents died the first winter at Plymouth, leaving her orphaned at the age of 13 in the New World.  She married to Mayflower passenger John Howland around 1625 at Plymouth.
