    Notes from Caleb Johnson's www.mayflowerhistory.com

    James Chilton was born about 1556, probably at Canterbury, Kent, England, the son of Lyonel l Chilton and his second wife (whose name has not been found). James married about 1585 or 1 586, and had his first child baptized at St. Paul's, Canterbury, Kent, England on 15 Januar y 1586/7. The name of his wife is not found in any records. The long-published claim that s he was Susanna Furner was disposed of by Michael Paulick's research published in 1999.

    James Chilton and wife had seven children born in Canterbury, Kent, before moving about 160 0 to Sandwich, Kent, where he had his last three children baptized. In 1609, his wife (unfor tunately called simply "___ Chilton wife of James Chilton," was charged by the Archdeaconry C ourt with attending the secret burial of a child (they opposed the "popish" burial ceremonie s of the Church of England). It was presumably not long before the family left for Holland . In 1619, James Chilton (aged 63) and his oldest daughter Isabella were caught in the middl e of an anti-Arminian riot in Leiden, and he was hit in the head with a stone, requiring th e services of the town surgeon Jacob Hey.

    James, his wife, and his youngest daughter Mary came on the Mayflower in 1620. James, at th e age of 64, was the oldest person to have made the Mayflower's voyage. James died on 8 Dece mber 1620 onboard the Mayflower, which was then anchored off Provincetown Harbor--one of si x passengers to die in the month of December. His wife also died sometime the first winter , but daughter Mary survived.
