  • Notes 
    • Great Migration Begins, pg. 1526: Degory Priest arrived in Plymouth, Massachusetts in 1620 aboard the Mayflower. His occupation was Hatter (when admitted as a citizen of Leiden). Priest is said to be of London.

      "Bradford includes 'Digory Priest' in his list of those on the Mayflower, and in his accounting of 1651 says that Priest 'died soon after... arrival in the general sickness,' but 'had his wife and children sent hither afterwards, she being Mr. Allerton's sister' [Bradford 443, 447].

      "In 1957 John G. Hunt published the 1582 baptism for a 'Digorius Prust' in Hartland, Devonshire [NEHGR 111:320]; although there is nothing to connect this with Degory Priest of London, Leiden and Plymouth, it is a useful clue.

      "Degory Priest and his descendants have been given full and definitive treatment in the eighth volume of the Five Generations project of the General Society of Mayflower Descendants, compiled by Mrs. Charles Delmar Townsend, Robert S. Wakefield and Margaret Harris Stover, and edited by Robert S. Wakefield (Plymouth 1994)."
