Note:   [ralphroberts.ged] [roberts.GED] [roberts.GED] [jrecord.ged] The following is from the Mayflower Home Pages, author CalebJ@@aol.com William Bradford wrote, c1650, "John Alden was hired for a cooper (Barrel maker) at Southampton where the ship (Mayflower) victualed, and being a hopeful young man was much desired but left to his own liking to go or stay when he came here; but he stayed and married here." and later wrote "John Alden married Priscilla, Mr. Mullin's daughter, and had issue by her as is before related". Extensive research has been done into the ancestry of John Alden, but nothing has conclusively been found. There are two major theories that have been presented over the years. Charles Edward Banks, in his book "The English Ancestry and Homes of the Pilgrim Father", 1929, puts forward a theory that John is the sone of George Alden and Jane (---) and grandson of Richard and Avys Alden of Southampton, England. Since Bradford says John Alden was hired in Southampton, this would be a logical place to start looking for Alden's. No other supporting evidence has been found, and it has been noted by many researchers that the names George, Richard, and Avys do not occur anywhere in John Alden's Family. Naming children after parents and grandparents was an extremely common practice in the seventeenth century, and the absence of such a name is nearly enough evidence to disprove this theory.

Mayflower passenger. "He was possessed of a sound judgement, and of talents, which though not brilliant were by no means ordinary, and disputable. The writers who mention him bear ample testimony to his industry, integrity and exemplary piety, and he has been represented as a worthy and useful man, of great humility, and eminent for the sancity of his life. He was decided, ardent, resolute, and persevering, indifferent to danger, a bold and hardy man; 8 8 8 of incorruptible integrity, an iron nerved Puritan, who could hew down forests and live on crumbs. He was a puritan, both in theory and in practice; and a professed disciple of Jesus Christ, he lived in accordance with his profession. He was a meek, humble, sincere, pious, and faithful follower of the blessed Redeemer, and his end was peace and triumph....." p. 17.
