In a previous posting, I alluded to mysteries that are still unsolved contained in William Bradford's Increasings, the document upon which we base the passenger list of the Mayflower. These mysteries are:
"Mr. Allerton his wife dyed with the first, and his servant John Hooke. his sone Bartle is maried in England but I know not how many children he hath."
- Bartholomew Allerton married first a Margaret (---) and then a Sarah Fairfax. He had four children, including two daughters who married a Messrs. Auger and Rausham in England. More work needs to be done on these descendants. See Mayflower Descendant (hereinafter MD) 40:7-10.
"Thomas Rogers dyed in the first sickness, but his sone Joseph is still living, and is maried, and hath 6 children. The rest of Thomas Rogers came over, and are maried, and have many children."
- The other children are John Rogers, and two girls, Elizabeth and Margaret. Sadly we don't know whom the two girls married. Certainly, from Bradford, they had children.
"John Turner, and his 2 sones all dyed in the first siknes. But he hath a daughter still living, at Salem, well maried, and approved of."
- The daughter is very likely an Elizabeth, but we don't know whom she married or if she had children. See The American Genealogist 52:110-113.
This doesn't include the Mayflower passengers who had children who remained in Europe, including John Crackstone, Moses Fletcher, Christopher Martin, and possibly others such as William Mullins, and the wives of several passengers who may have had children by previous marriages, like Alice (---) Mullins and Katherine (White) (Legatt) Carver.
