Mayflower Ancestors

We'd been told by several in the family that we were Mayflower descendants (there are something like 2,000,000+ at this time).  However, nobody was certain of the lineage.  I am fairly certain now and I wasn't really surprised to find connections in that our ancestors had been in New England, particularly Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Maine for a very long time.  It is likely that they would meet and marry some Mayflower descendant along the way.  Your great-aunt Margaret and I are now up to 9 Mayflower ancestors, as are you.  I don't believe there will be more from our line.  They are:

- Isaac Allerton (husband of Mary (Norris) Allerton and father of Mary Allerton)
- Mary (Norris) Allerton
- Mary (Allerton) Cushman
- James Chilton (he is the father of Mary Chilton)
- Mary Chilton
- Mary Allerton (the last surviving Mayflower passenger when she died in 1699)
- William Brewster
- Stephen Hopkins
- Constance Hopkins
