The 'proposed' logic is that as a descendent of Jonathan, who arrived in
1621 on the Fortune, my pedigree would show Jonathan Brewster, of Scrooby,
immigrant, arrived on the Fortune in 1621, son of William Brewster and Mary
? of England. It's nit-picking, but in all other instances with my
ancestors either the parent(s) followed the children, the children arrived
with the parents, or the children were born after arrival. I would guess
I've identified 50 or more immigrant ancestors, so the the sample is not a

>2. I'm having difficulty following your logic here.
3. No one alive today actually accompanied his or her parents on the
Mayflower. Why are you holding Jonathan Brewster to that criterion?
4. I take it that Jonathan came on a ship other than the Mayflower?
When and which one? He seems to have married on 10 April 1624 in
Plymouth, so it must have been pretty early.<
