  1. ANCESTRAL SUMMARY:John Tilley, his wife Joan (Hurst) Rogers, and daughter Elizabeth came onthe Mayflower. John and Joan died the first winter, but Elizabeth lived,married John Howland, and had eleven children. John's brother EdwardTilley came with wife Agnes Cooper on the Mayflower as well.John Tilley did not marry Prijntgen (Elizabeth) van Der Velde inHolland. That was easily disproved in Mayflower Descendant 10:66-67, andby the subsequent identification of Joan (Hurst) Rogers. Also note thatthe article in the Mayflower Quarterly 49:16+ entitled "John Tilley Jr,1599-1636" presents a theory as to what happened to John Tilley's sonJohn, but the article has been criticized as presenting no proof but justspeculations (Wakefield in MD 43:76; Stratton p. 362).John's wife Joan is the daughter of William Hurst and Rose (---). Williamwas born c1530, and died before 1571. He lived in Henlow, Bedford,England. Joan Hurst was baptized in Henlow, Bedford, England on 13 March1567/8. She married first Thomas Rogers (no known relation to ThomasRogers of the Mayflower), and second John Tilley.The known ancestry of John Tilley is as follows (from The AmericanGenealogist 52:198-208):--------------------------------------------------------------------------------Henry Tilley, b. c1465, d. 1520 === Johan (---) !Thomas Tilley, b. c1490, d. 1556 === Margaret (---) !William Tilley, b. c1515, d.
