Degory Priest From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Jump to navigation Jump to search Mayflower in Plymouth Harbor by William Halsall (1882) Degory Priest (c. 1579 – c. 1621) was a member of the Leiden contingent on the historic 1620 voyage of the ship Mayflower. He was a hat maker from London who married Sarah, sister of Pilgrim Isaac Allerton in Leiden. He was a signatory to the Mayflower Compact in November 1620 and died less than two months later.[1] In some documents of the time, his name was also written as Digory Priest.[2][3] Contents 1 English Origins 2 Life in Holland 3 Marriage and family 4 Children of Degory Priest and his wife Sarah (Allerton) Priest 5 Death and burial 6 Sarah Allerton, wife of Degory Priest and Godbert Godbertson 7 References English Origins According to Banks, the name of Digory Priest or Prust is common in Devon and Cornwall. A family with those names was found residing in Lezant, co. Cornwall.[4] At the time of the Pilgrim emigration families of this name were living in the London parishes of All Hallows the Great, All Hallows on the Wall, St. Augustine, St. Dunstan-in-the-West and St. Margaret Patten.[4] Life in Holland [2][4][5][6] Per Banks, "Digory" Priest was credited as one of the "Leyden" contingent and was again identified as a hat-maker from London in Leyden records.[4] His name appears in many Leiden records of the time, being comparatively active in comparison to other church members. He became a citizen (burgess) of Leiden on November 16, 1615 with guarantors being future Mayflower compatriot Isaac Allerton and Roger Wilson.[4][5] Several Leiden incidents in June 1617 are recorded regarding Degory Priest’s involvement in activities that border on assault in one case and adultery in another. On June 28, 1617 Priest requested two tobacco pipe-makers to sign an affidavit that he had not hit John Cripps on June 17, 1617 but only "touched his Jabot" – i.e. the frill on the front of his shirt. The affidavit may have been needed by Priest to document his innocence in what could have been an assault case. And on the next day, June 18, 1617, Priest needed another affidavit, this time also involving John Cripps, card maker, who was rumored to have been in an adulterous relationship with Elizabeth, who was the wife of Leiden woolcomber John Mos.[5] [7] On April 9, 1619, Degory Priest and Samuel Lee, both hatters, signed a good behavior document on behalf of Nicholas Claverly, a tobacco-pipe maker, who had arrived in Leiden about 1615 and resided in a house owned by Degory Priest. In the document, Priest stated an age of forty years, which indicated he was born about 1579.[1][7] Records show that on May 3, 1619 Degory Priest witnessed an affidavit to a statement signed by Richard Tyrill stating that Nicholas Claverly was not connected with the murder of Tyrill’s brother John Tyrill.[7] Signing the Mayflower Compact 1620, a painting by Jean Leon Gerome Ferris 1899 Degory Priest departed Plymouth, England aboard the Mayflower on September 6/16, 1620. The small, 100-foot ship had 102 passengers and a crew of about 30-40 in extremely cramped conditions. By the second month out, the ship was being buffeted by strong westerly gales, causing the ship‘s timbers to be badly shaken with caulking failing to keep out sea water, and with passengers, even in their berths, lying wet and ill. This, combined with a lack of proper rations and unsanitary conditions for several months, contributed to illness that would be fatal for many, especially the majority of women and children. On the way there were two deaths, a crew member and a passenger, but the worst was yet to come after arriving at their destination when, in the space of several months, almost half the passengers perished in cold, harsh, unfamiliar New England winter.[8] On November 9/19, 1620, after about 3 months at sea, including a month of delays in England, they spotted land, which was the Cape Cod Hook, now called Provincetown Harbor. After several days of trying to get south to their planned destination of the Colony of Virginia, strong winter seas forced them to return to the harbor at Cape Cod hook, where they anchored on November 11/21. The Mayflower Compact was signed that day.[8][9] Degory Priest was a signatory to the Mayflower Compact on November 11, 1620.[7][10] From William Bradford’s later recollection of seven men from the Mayflower who died soon after arrival, "Digerie Preist" among them, with this comment: "All these dyed sone after their arrival in the general sickness that befell." And with this about Priest’s family: "But Digerie Preist had his wife and children sent hither afterwards, she being Mr. Allertons sister." Bradford closed his comments in this section with the note: "But the rest left no posteritie here."[11] Marriage and family Degory Priest married Sarah (Allerton) Vincent on November 4, 1611. She was the widow of John Vincent and sister of Mayflower passenger Isaac Allerton. They had two daughters, Mary and Sarah.[2][12] Sarah Priest married 2nd in Leiden on or shortly after November 13, 1621 Godbert Godbertson, whose name, per Banks, was also written as Cuthbert Cuthbertson. He was a hat-maker from Leiden, as was Priest, and had been in communion with the Pilgrims before their emigration. He had previously been married to Elizabeth Kendall in 1617, who presumably was deceased by the time of his second marriage. They came to Plymouth on the ship Anne in 1623 with their son and her two daughters. Both Sarah and her second husband Godbert Godbertson died in 1633 in the epidemic that was rampant at that time. Their burial places are unknown.[2][7][13] Children of Degory Priest and his wife Sarah (Allerton) Priest Mary Priest was born about 1612 and died in Charlestown in 1689. She married Phineas Pratt by 1633 and had eight children. The family moved to Charlestown about 1646. Mary Priest Pratt was a person of note in Plymouth history, coming on the ship Sparrow in 1622, being one of Thomas Weston's settlers at the failed Weymouth settlement, and coming to Plymouth in 1623.[14][15] Sarah Priest was born about 1614, went to England by October 1646, and may have died there, date and place unknown. She married John Coombs about 1632 and had two sons. For reasons that are not known, possibly the demise of her husband, Sarah traveled to England about 1645 and left her two sons, John and Francis Coombs, in the care of William Spooner who had agreed to their maintenance. It is believed that Sarah never returned to Massachusetts Colony, either having died on the voyage, or in England.[2][7] Death and burial Priest died early in the first winter, on January 1, 1621 from getting "down with the sickness." He was aged about 42 years.[2][4][7] He was buried likely sometime in January 1621 in Coles Hill Burial Ground in Plymouth, most probably in an unmarked grave, as was the custom that first winter. Along with many others who died in the winter of 1620-1621, his name is memorialized on the Pilgrim Memorial Tomb, located on Coles Hill in Plymouth.[16] Sarah Allerton, wife of Degory Priest and Godbert Godbertson After Priest’s death, his wife Sarah married another hat-maker, Godbert Godbertson (or Cuthbert Cuthbertson), on November 13, 1621 with whom she had one son, Samuel, born possibly about 1622. Godbertson was said by Edward Winslow to be an English speaker of the Dutch Church and a member of the Separatist church in Leiden. They came, with their son Samuel Cuthbertson (later shortened to Cuthbert) and her daughters Mary and Sarah Priest, to Plymouth on the ship Anne in 1623. They were assigned land in the 1623 Division of Land with 6 "akers" for "Cudbart Cudbartsone" – one acre for the deceased Priest and one each for his wife Sarah, her second husband Godbert Godbertson and their three children. Both Godbertson and his wife Sarah died in the epidemic of 1633 sometime in that fall, with their estate inventories being taken on October 24, 1633. Their burial places are unknown.[7][17][18] Sarah Allerton [19]was the sister of another Mayflower passenger, Isaac Allerton.

New England History Who Are the Mayflower Descendants? Could you be one of the nation’s estimated 35 million Mayflower descendants? Today there are more resources than ever before to help you make the connection.

Each of these famous folks had a distant forebear who was a passenger on the Mayflower in 1620. Think you might have one, too? There are plenty of tools to help determine if you might be one of the nation’s many Mayflower descendants. Who Are the Mayflower Descendants? The arrival of the Mayflower in 1620 is one of the signature events in U.S. history. Roughly 35 million people can trace their ancestry back to the Mayflower — and it’s never been easier to find out if you are among them. Painting by William Halsall / Public Domain Are You a Mayflower Descendant? | Mayflower Families The Mayflower set sail from Plymouth, England, in September 1620 with approximately 130 people on board: 102 passengers, the rest crew. Of the passengers, five died before ever coming ashore in America, and 45 more failed to survive their first New England winter. Of the surviving passengers, only 37 are known to have descendants. Could one of them be a distant relative of yours? By reviewing the Mayflower passenger list, descendants can often get their first clue. All the known Mayflower descendants alive today can trace their lineage to one or more of 22 male passengers: John Alden Isaac Allerton John Billington William Bradford William Brewster Peter Browne James Chilton Francis Cooke Edward Doty Francis Eaton Edward Fuller Samuel Fuller Stephen Hopkins John Howland Degory Priest Thomas Rogers Henry Samson George Soule Myles Standish Richard Warren William White Edward Winslow Being of Mayflower descent is certainly a badge of honor in New England, where we value deep roots. But the ranks of descendants have swelled enormously over many generations. How many Mayflower descendants are there? Most estimates place the number of descendants alive today at around 35 million. By way of comparison, the combined population of the six New England states is just shy of 15 million. The population of the entire United States is a bit more than 327 million. Who Are the Mayflower Descendants? The Mayflower II, a full-scale replica of the Mayflower, is typically on display at Plimoth Plantation. However, it is currently undergoing renovations in preparation for the 400th anniversary of the Pilgrims’ landing. Photo by Andrew Hitchcock / CC BY 2.0 How to Begin We’ll start with the obvious: If you share a surname with any of the Mayflower 22, focus on that line of your family tree and see if you can work backward toward a connection. However, the vast majority of descendants do not share a name with anyone on the list, since only a direct paternal line would have perpetuated the name. If you don’t have a direct name connection, start with a line that you suspect has deep New England roots, and see how far you can take it. That’s what I did. My Descendant Moment My mother was something of a genealogy nut, so I was gifted with a head start on tracing my family lines. On my father’s side in particular, my mom had traced my lineage back 14 generations. My great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-grandfather John Bill (the “s” was added in the 1750s, it seems) died in Boston in 1638. There is no record of his passage to America, but his son, Thomas Bill, was born in England in 1618 and died in Boston in 1696. It would seem to make some sense, then, that John and family set sail for Massachusetts sometime between 1618 and 1638. Thomas, by the way, had a wife named Abigail and a son named Samuel. That gave me a pretty tight window to research, so I dug into an online database (more on those in a moment) and was quickly rewarded. There they were, in the lineage of Mayflower passenger John Alden: Thomas Bill and his wife, Abigail, and even little Sam. But something didn’t add up. Though the dates were close, they weren’t quite what my mom had in her family tree. And this Tom and Abby and Sam lived in New London, Connecticut, not Boston. I checked and double-checked both my records and theirs. As unlikely as it seemed, John Alden’s Samuel Bill, son of Thomas and Abigail, was not the same person as my Samuel Bill, son of Thomas and Abigail. Of course, this doesn’t mean that I won’t find another connection to the Pilgrims who made the great voyage of 1620. But that potential victory will require plenty more research. Mayflower Descendant Search Tools It would be great if there were a free online search engine or Mayflower descendants database that could easily tell you if your lineage leads back to the Mayflower. (But that would also take all the fun out of the hunt.) While that immediate-answer machine doesn’t yet exist, there are plenty of resources available to help you close the gap between you and your distant relatives. For my own search, I chose the American Ancestors site from the New England Historical Genealogical Society. There are some free resources on the site, but to access the real meat of the collection, membership is required. I signed up for a three-month membership for $35 and was quickly overwhelmed (in a good way) by the treasure trove of census records, maps, vital records, property records, journals and newspapers, immigration records, and journals that awaited me. One entire section of the site is devoted specifically to Mayflower genealogies. There are other sites with impressive combinations of free and paid resources, as well. Caleb Johnson’s MayflowerHistory.com is a great free starting point, with links to multiple resources. If you prefer a more old-fashioned approach, the General Society of Mayflower Descendants has published a Mayflower Families Through Five Generations book series (more than two dozen volumes strong at this point), which are fun to browse. The listings are authoritative and organized by surname, which can be a great help or a huge limitation, depending on what information you have already assembled. After five generations, however, the strength of the trail left behind can vary greatly depending on where your ancestors lived and how prominent they were in their communities. For those who remained in New England, vital records compilations by state are available in print or on microfilm that should allow you to gradually cross-reference your way to a connected family tree. Massachusetts has been registering vital records officially since 1841. Rhode Island started in 1853, Vermont in 1857, New Hampshire in 1866, Maine in 1892, and Connecticut in 1897. Town histories and church records are terrific sources as well, and in many cases they have been digitized for easy searching. Another resource not to be overlooked (but also not to be trusted without verification) are user-posted genealogies on free sites such as RootsWeb or Ancestral Findings. Sometimes a simple Google search of an ancestor’s name and “Mayflower” is all it takes to connect you to another researcher’s efforts. A Fun Shortcut If you’re lucky, there may be another way to make a quick connection all the way back to the Mayflower. Many of us grew up hearing a family story about how Ulysses S. Grant or Laura Ingalls Wilder or some other famous person is a distant relative. Grant and Wilder were both Mayflower descendants, so if your lineage connects to theirs, you’re in, too. There are plenty of lists available online, but here are some famous Mayflower descendants to get you started: Franklin D. Roosevelt, Helen Keller, Robert Frost, Lizzie Borden, Sarah Palin, Ernest Hemingway, General George S. Patton, Barbara Bush, Julia Child, Jesse James, Humphrey Bogart, Jane Fonda, Commodore Matthew Perry, Orville and Wilbur Wright, Alan Shepard, Bette Davis, Grandma Moses, and John Hinckley Jr. No matter which approach you take, and no matter whether you succeed in making a Mayflower connection, you will almost certainly come away from your search with a renewed connection to your past, and a story or two that is uniquely your own. Who could resist that? This post was first published in 2019 and has been updated. Source: https://newengland.com/today/living/new-england-history/mayflower-descendants/
egory Priest BIRTH: About 1579. MARRIAGE: Sarah (Allerton) Vincent, 4 November 1611, Leiden, Holland, the sister of Isaac Allerton. CHILDREN: Mary and Sarah. DEATH: 1 January 1620/1 at Plymouth. Degory Priest deposed that he was 40 years old in a document signed in Leiden in April 1619; this would place his birth at about 1579 in England. On 4 November 1611, he was married to Sarah (Allerton) Vincent, the widow of John Vincent, and the sister of Mayflower passenger Isaac Allerton; Isaac Allerton was married to his wife Mary Norris on the same date. Dutch hatters at work, cir. 1635. It has been suggested that Degory Priest of the Mayflower may have been the Degorius Prust, baptized 11 August 1582 in Hartland, co. Devon, England, the son of Peter Prust. However, given that the baptism appears to be about 3 years too late, and the fact that none of the Leiden Separatists are known to have come from Devonshire, I have my doubts this baptism belongs to the Mayflower passenger. Degory Priest was one of the earliest to have arrived in Leiden, so it seems more reasonable to suspect he is from the Nottinghamshire/Yorkshire region, the Sandwich/Canterbury region, the London/Middlesex region, or the Norfolk region: all of the early Separatists in Leiden appear to have come from one of these centers. Degory Priest became a citizen of Leiden on 16 November 1615, and was called a hatter, and perhaps employed with Samuel Lee and Godbert Godbertson, other members of the Leiden congregation who were also hatter. In 1617, Degory Priest had some kind of altercation with a man named John Cripps who was alleged to have been having an adulterous affair with Elizabeth wife of John Mos. He had some friends sign an affidavit stating he hadn't hit Cripps but only "touched his jabot." Degory shared his Leiden residence with a tobacco-pipe maker named Nicholas Claverly. Degory and wife Sarah had two children, Mary and Sarah. Degory came alone on the Mayflower, planning to bring wife and children later after the colony was better established. His death the first winter ended those plans. His wife remarried to Godbert Godbertson in Leiden on 13 November 1621, and they had a son Samuel together. Godbert, his wife Sarah, their son Samuel, and his step-children Mary and Sarah Priest all came on the ship Anne to Plymouth in 1623. Source: http://mayflowerhistory.com/priest/
