Re: Ezekiel Billington and the Mayflower

In Reply to: Re: Ezekiel Billington and the Mayflower by John Billington of 884

Every Billington in the Mayflower line descended from Francis Billington (John Sr.'s son) and Christian Penn Eaton Billington, then one of their children:
Elizabeth (1635-1709)
Joseph (1636-1684)
Martha (1638-1704)
Mary (1640-1717) - MINE
Isaac (1644-1709)
Rebecca (1648-1648)
Dorcas (1650-1707)
Mercy (1651-1718)

So you've got to connect your dots to one of the above to be a Mayflower descendant, as we know.

It is hard to go back too much further than John Sr., but the research I have gives his birth as 1580 in Spaulding, Lincolnshire, England, and, of course, we know when he died, where and how. His father was also John Billington (1546-1578), Lincolnshire, who married Mary Proctor (1551-1605). Anybody know more?
