    He was hired at the port of Southampton, but despite the strenuous efforts of many researchers over many years, absolutely nothing has been proved about his English origins.

    From "The Probable English Origin of Mayflower passenger Peter Browne, and His Association with Mayflower Passenger William Mullins," by Caleb Johnson, The American Genealogist 79:3, July 2004:

    "The parentage and ancestry of William Mullins have not been conclusively proven. The Mullins family may have been living in Dorking for a considerable period of time prior to William Mullins himself, as the Dorking manor court rolls between 1454 and 1458 mention a Peter and Isabel Moleyn on several occasions. The Dorking parish registers are unfortunately defective for the years 1572 through 1578 -- the time period in which we would expect William to have been baptized. However, there was only one Mullins family in Dorking that was having children during this time period: the John Mullins who married Joan Bridger there on 8 July 1571. Most of their children would have fallen into the 'black hole' in the registers. On 23 September 1582, we see the baptism of their last child, Edward Mullins. On 4 February 1583/4, a Mullins (no Christian name given) was buried. Wc can reasonably assume this burial record was for John Mullins the father, because the next Mullins burial record in the registers, on 8 July 1584, was recorded as the 'son of widow Mullins.' And since son Edward Mullins appears in no subsequent Dorking records, we can speculate that this was the unnamed son who was buried. The following year, on 1 November 1585, the widow Joane Mullins was remarried to Vyncent Benham.
    "Two Mullinses appear in later Dorking records; they are assumed to be unrecorded children of John and Joan (Bridger) Mullins. They are the Mayflower passenger, William Mullins, and John Mullins."

    William married Alice before 1593. Alice died after 2 Apr 1621 in Plymouth, Plymouth, Massachusetts. [Group Sheet] [Family Chart]


  2. 15.  Alice died after 2 Apr 1621 in Plymouth, Plymouth, Massachusetts.

    Other Events:

    • Alternate death: Aft 21 Feb 1621, Plymouth, Plymouth, Massachusetts

    Notes:

    Emigrated on the Mayflower, 1620. Died sometime after the Mayflower set sail on its return voyage, but before the mid-November arrival of the Fortune.

    She may or may not have been the mother of Priscilla Mullins.

    Children:
    1. William Mullins died on 12 Feb 1673 in Braintree, Norfolk, Massachusetts.
    2. 7. Priscilla Mullins was born about 1602; died after 1651.
