Notes for Priscilla MULLINS
Priscilla Mullins was the daughter of William and Alice Mullins. William Mullins was a shoe dealer in Dorking, Surrey, England. He purchased shares in the Pilgrims joint-stock company and brought his wife Alice, daughter Priscilla and son Joseph to America on the Mayflower. Unfortunately only Priscilla survived the first winter.

In about 1623 Priscilla married John Alden. They were among the founders of the town of Duxbury, Plymouth, MA.

John and Priscilla had 10 children:

(Bradford's List) "mr William Mullines, and his wife; and .2. children Joseph, & priscila; and a servant Robart Carter."

Also mentioned by Bradford, in his account of the family of William Mullins was the following statement: "Only his dougter priscila survied, and maried with John Alden, who are both living, and have . 11. children. And their eldest daughter is maried & hath five children."

March 3, 1621. Got the great guns mounted on the hill. William White, William Mullins, and two others died.

As William, his wife Priscilla and son Joseph all died early, all lines of descent from William1 Mullins are traced through his daughter, Priscilla2 Mullins, who married John1 Alden;

JOHN ALDEN. Born about 1599. Died at Duxbury, 22 September, 1687. He married, at Plymouth, before 1624, PRISCILLA2 MULLINS (WILLIAM1) who died after 1650.
