  • Notes 
    • "Signed the Mayflower Compact, Nov 11, 1620"

      "Died the first winter"

      Notes from "The Great Migration Begins":

      COMMENTS: "John Tilley and his wife, and Elizabeth their daughter" were passengers on the Mayflower [ Bradford (p33167,120,144);> 442]. "John Tilley and his wife both died a little after they came ashore. And their daughter Elizabeth married with John Howland and hath issue as is before noted" [ Bradford (p33167,120,144);> 446].

      "John Tilley was the elder brother of EDWARD TILLEY , who also died in the first sickness. "

      From Caleb Johnson:

      "John Tilley is not the Jan Tellij who married Prijntgen van der Velde in Holland. John Tilley married Joan (Hurst) Rogers in Henlow, Bedford, England, and it was Joan that came on the Mayflower with him. Jan Tellij was a Dutchman with no connection to the Pilgrims. [TG 6:166-186; MD 10:66-67]" [2, 5]
