Signers of the Mayflower Compact
By Annie Arnoux Haxtun
This is the standard reference work on the signers of the Mayflower Compact (1620), consisting of lengthy sketches of the signers with considerable genealogical information on the men and their families. Descriptions of arms, lineages, and excerpts from wills and other contemporary documents are integrated with the historical and biographical data. In addition, the work contains extensive records of the signers showing thousands of family connections. Signers of the Mayflower Compact, which was originally published in pamphlet form from 1897 to 1899, is divided into three parts. Parts I and II deal with the signers and their families, one by one, while the final part contains Brewster tombstone and Bible records and information on a number of later Pilgrims who arrived on the Fortune, Ann, and the Little James. Notable among the signers were John Alden, William Bradford, and Miles Standish, to mention only a few.
