James Chilton

  • Are you planning on traveling to England this summer? If so, this is a list of where some of our Pilgrim ancestors lived.

  • A brief overview of James Chilton.

  • A full list of all of the Pilgrim related sites to see in Plymouth.

  • Am I a Mayflower Descendant?
    For those of you who are curious about whether or not you may be descended from a Mayflower passenger please see our List of Mayflower Passengers and Genealogies Links below. The surnames found in the first three generations after landing are also included.

  • Pilgrim TradesOur Mayflower ancestors were not of “royal blood.” For the most part, they were what we now would call “middle class” people who had to work for a living. Of the 58 male passengers, both men and boys, the trades or occupations of only 32 are known.

  • The Landing of the PilgrimsWhat is the significance of this painting? It might be titled "Ladies First!" Perhaps you can identify some of the individuals shown; that is probably Captain Myles Standish as the left wearing the helmet and holding the oar. Note there there are other women and children.
