Notes for James Chilton:

 

James Chilton was born in England about 1556 and lived in Canterbury. He was the son of Lyonell Chylton and his first wife whose name is unknown. Lyonell's second wife, Isabell Furner, had two children, Thomas and Susanna Furner. Listed as a freeman of Canterbury in 1583, James Chilton was a tailor. He married before 1587 and his first seven children were born in Canterbury. The last three were born in Sandwich where the family had moved about 1600. Here, James and his family became part of the separatist movement that escaped to Leiden to escape persecution. James Chilton was the oldest passenger on the Mayflower, and a signer of the Mayflower Compact. Sadly James passed away aboard the Mayflower in December of 1620. His wife died soon after. His youngest daughter Mary, though, survived and married John Winslow. In 1650, Governor Bradford wrote that "James Chilton and his wife also died during the first infection, but their daughter Mary is still living and hath nine children; and one daughter is married and hath a child. So their increase is ten. In popular legend, James' daughter Mary was the first person to step out of the ship onto Plymouth Rock.

03. James Chilton, son of Lyonell was the oldest passenger on board the Mayflower. He was born bef. 1563 in Canterbury, Kent, England. Around 1600, he moved to Sandwich, England. By 1615 he was in Leyden, Holland with some of his children. On April 28, 1619, James and his daughter Isabella were caught in an anti-Armenian riot and James was hit in the head with a large stone and required the services of the town surgeon, Jacob Hey. On September 6, 1620, the Mayflower left Plymouth, England. On board was James, his wife Susanna, and daughter Mary. Both James and Susanna died before the Mayflower arrived. Mary was orphaned and was assumed to have joined the Myles Standish household. She earned the distinction of being the first female to step ashore at Plymouth. She later married John Winslow who arrived on the ship "Fortune". The claim by John Hunt in The American Genealogist 38:244-245 that his wife was possibly Susanna Furner has been recently disproven on the basis of the discovery of Susanna Furner's baptism record, which indicates she was far too young (only 12) to be married and having children in 1586. The 10 children of James and an unknown wife according to the book "Mayflower Families Through Five Generations: Volume 15, page 3" are:
