The mark of Elisabeth E H Howland Signed Sealed & Delivd in ye prsence of us Wittnesses Hugh Cole Samuel Vyall John Browne "In 1847 it was believed that Elizabeth was the Carvers' daughter. In 1855 William Bradford's long-lost journal was discovered, and a transcript was published in 1856. Entitled "Of Plimoth Plantation", it is about the only written record of Plymouth Colony. It contained, among much other information, the fact that the Carvers were childless, and they had taken Elizabeth Tilley, then a young teenager, into their home when her parents and her uncle and aunt all died during the first winter at Plymouth. Her father was John Tilley, her mother usually accepted to be Joan Hurst Rogers, though some writers have said she was Elizabeth Comyngs. John Howland was the "servant" of the Carvers. At that time, the term "employee" had not been created; employees were called "servants". When Both Carvers died in the spring of the first year at Plymouth, John Howland inherited the Carvers' estate. 1620 - John Howland and Elizabeth arrive on the Mayflower. 1632 - They went to Maine. 1678/9 - Bought the Rocky Nook farm. 1670 - Jabez Howland bought the house at Plymouth. John and Elizabeth winter there. 1672/3 - John Howland died in the Plymouth home of his son. 1675 - The Rocky Nook Farm house burned to the ground. Elizabeth makes her home with Jabez' family. 1680/1 - Jabez sells the Plymouth house. Elizabeth signes the deed and moved to Swansea to live with her daughter, Lydia Brown. 1687 - Elizabeth Tilley Howland died and was buried in the Brown Family plot. Elizabeth was 13 when she and her parents came across on the Mayflower. Elizabeth's death date may also be February 2, 1687/88
