Priscilla Mullins

b. between 1600 and 1602, d. after 1680
Birth*between 1600 and 1602Priscilla Mullins was born between 1600 and 1602 in Dorking, Surrey County, England.
(Young Female) Mayflower Passenger9 November 1620Priscilla Mullins was about 18 years of age when she sailed with her parents and younger brother onboard the Mayflower from Plymouth, England to Plymouth Colony in what is now Massachusetts. When the Mayflower departed Plymouth, England on 6 Sep 1620, she was carrying 102 passengers, including three pregnant women. During the voyage one baby, Oceanus Hopkins, was born making a total of 103 passengers. Three days before land was sighted, passenger William Button died, so when the Mayflower arrived there were again 102 passengers. A full list of the passengers may be accessed by clicking on the PDF icon at the end of this section and those included in this project so far include adult males John Alden, Francis Cooke and James Chilton, adult females Susanna (Furner) Chilton, young male John Cooke, and young females Priscilla Mullins and Mary Chilton.

During the weeks ahead, while everyone still "lived" on the ship, the men explored the area looking for a place to build their settlement. Another baby, Peregrine (meaning "wanderer") White, son of William and Susannah, was born in America onboard the Mayflower on 20 Nov, the first English child born to the Pilgrims in the New World. The White's servant, Edward Thompson, died on 4 Dec, followed shortly by 7 year old Jasper More, one of the four illegitimate children placed on the Mayflower in the care of the William Brewster family by their mother's humiliated husband. Two of the other More children died as well. And, tragically, Dorothy May Bradford, William Bradford's wife, slipped over the side of the anchored Mayflower and drowned. In early December the group decided to move the ship and look somewhere else for a settlement location. The ship and its passengers left Provincetown Harbor on 15 Dec. Two days later on 17 Dec, the Mayflower dropped anchor at Plymouth Harbor and on 21 Dec the first landing party arrived at the site of what would become the settlement of Plymouth. The weather, however, was so terrible they could not begin work on shore for several days. In the meantime, the Mayflower had become a hospital ship, the passengers suffering from colds, coughs, fevers and scurvy. James Chilton had died even before the Mayflower arrived in Plymouth Harbor. Richard Britteridge passed away the day the ship arrived, and two days later Solomon Prower, the stepson of Christopher Martin, the ship's designated "governor", died. The following day Mary Allerton gave birth to a stillborn son.

By the end of January 1621, enough of the settlement had been built to begin unloading provisions from the Mayflower, however the emigrants' ordeal was far from over. With two and sometimes three people dying a day during February and March, almost everyone had lost a loved one. Christopher Martin died in early January, his wife Mary soon after. The Rigsdale, Tinker and Turner families were completely wiped out, followed by Susannah Chilton whose husband James had died while the ship was at Provincetown Harbor. The Chilton's 13 year old daughter Mary had become an orphan. Also orphaned that first winter were 17 year old Joseph Rogers, 12 year old Samuel Fuller, 18 year old John Crackston, 17 year old Priscilla Mullins and 13 year old Elizabeth Tilley, who also lost her aunt and uncle, Edward and Ann Tilley. By mid-March, William Bradford, Myles Standish, Francis Eaton and Isaac Allerton, who had three children between the ages of eight and four, had all become widowers. When William White died, his widow Susannah was left with their newborn son Peregrine and 5 year old Resolved. Susannah was the plantation's only surviving widow. By that first spring, 52 of the 102 who had originally arrived at Provincetown were dead. Half, however, survived. And, miraculously, the families of William Brewster, Francis Cooke, Stephen Hopkins and John Billington were completely untouched by all the disease. The remaining "Pilgrims" worked, prayed and fought together and their settlement of Plimouth Plantation in Plymouth Colony had begun.1,2,3
Marriage*12 May 1622She married John Alden on 12 May 1622 in Plymouth, Plymouth Colony, Massachusetts (Plymouth Colony).
Death*after 1680She died after 1680 in Duxbury, Plymouth Colony, Massachusetts (Plymouth Colony).
