(Adult Male) Mayflower Passenger9 November 1620James Chilton was about 64 years old, and likely the oldest passenger, when he sailed with his wife Susannah and daughter Mary onboard the Mayflower from Plymouth, England to Plymouth Colony in what is now Massachusetts. His daughter Mary has traditionally been given the honor of being the first female to step ashore at Plymouth Rock, however no historical documentation for this tradition has ever been found. 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.3,4,5
(Signer) Mayflower Compact11 November 1620James Chilton was one of the 41 adult males who signed the Mayflower Compact on 11 November 1620 onboard the Mayflower which was at anchor in what is now Provincetown Harbor, Plymouth Colony, Massachusetts (Plymouth Colony). All 41 of the adult male members on the Mayflower signed the Compact. It outlined the first written laws for the new land, determined authority within the settlement and was observed as "the law" until 1691. The Compact established that the colony of mostly persecuted Separatists was to be free of English law. It was devised to set up a government from within themselves and was written by those to be governed. When creating the Mayflower Compact, the signers believed that covenants were not only to be honored between God and man, but also between each other. They had always honored covenants as part of their righteous integrity and agreed to be bound by this same principle with the Compact. John Adams and many historians have referred to the Mayflower Compact as the foundation of the U.S. Constitution written more than 150 later.3,6,7
Death*18 December 1620He died aboard the Mayflower in Cape Cod Harbor on 18 December 1620.1
(Father) OrphanWhen James and Susanna (Furner) Chilton both died during their first winter in America, their 13-year-old daughter Mary Chilton was left orphaned in her new world.2,1

(Young Female) Mayflower Passenger9 November 1620Mary Chilton was about 13 years old when she sailed with her parents onboard the Mayflower from Plymouth, England to Plymouth Colony in what is now Massachusetts. She has traditionally been given the honor of being the first female to step ashore at Plymouth Rock, however no historical documentation for this tradition has ever been found. 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.

William Christian1

ChartsDescendants of Thomas Gerrard of Gibbstown, County Meath, Ireland and his Brothers
Marriage Settlement*8 January 1810A memorial of an indented deed of settlement dated 8 January 1810 was made between William Christian of Ardbraccan, County Meath, gentleman, of the first part, Bridget Gerrard of Dormstown, County Meath, spinster, of the second part, and Thomas Gerrard of Dormstown aforesaid, gentleman, of the third part.

After reciting among other things that a (marriage) was to be had and solemnized between the said William Christian and Bridget Gerrard, she the said Bridget granted, bargained, sold, assigned, released and confirmed unto the said Thomas Gerrard, his actual possession then being by virtue of the deed and statute therein mentioned, and to his heirs and assigns, all that and those that part of the lands of Tankardstown situate in the Lower Barony of Navan and county of Meath aforesaid containing 113 acres, 3 roods and 30 perches, be the same more or less, now in the possession of said Bridget, bounded on the east by the road leading from Nobber to Trim, on the (west) by part of the lands of Martry in possession of Michael Nowlan, on the north by the river called the Blackwater, and on the south by the high road leading from Navan to Kells, and also many tenements, edifices and buildings on said premises together with the lease and assignment of said premises therein recited, to hold for the life of his Majesty King George III and, in case of his death before the expiration of the term of 34 years to be completed from the first day of the said month, then to hold to the said Thomas Gerrard, his heirs and assigns for so much of said term of 34 years as should (become open or be unused) at the death of his said Majesty subject to the trust provisions, conditions and agreements thereinafter recited, expressed and declared of and concluding the same, but to and for no other use, trust, intent or purpose whatsoever.
