I just discovered I'm descended from several Mayflower Pasengers! George Soule is one. Also John Howland, and the Tilley's. Currently reading some books by Nathaniel Phlbrick. Quite illuminating. Would love to know more about any of the people, if anyone can point me in the right directions!

Hi I have the dubious name (Daniel) John Billington, no relation - remember him ?

Whoops, I've got a typo in there - Samuel Hubbard and Tacy Cooper married in Windsor, CT, not in MA.

Hi Joan,
I'm sorry it's taken me so long to get back to you - I just realized today that I'd thought I'd answered your comment already but hadn't. My direct Hubbard line disappears in the first generation in New England. Samuel Hubbard, an emigre from England to New England (initially Salem, MA), married Tacy/Tasy Cooper (also an England emigre) in 1636 in MA. Histories say that they were both amongst the group that walked to modern-day CT to found it in 1635. They moved on to RI and eventually co-founded the Seventh Day Baptist Church in Newport, RI in 1671, the first branch in the Colonies, which appears to be the main reason so much more has been written about them than most of my other early settlers. (Some of it, in particular the assertion that Samuel's grandfather was burned at the stake in England, appears to be inaccurate, though.) Their daughter Ruth Hubbard, who was born in what became Springfield, MA (originally Agawam) and was the first white child born there, married Robert Burdick in RI in autumn 1655 when she was just 15. They had a very large family (as I'm sure you know was common then) and my direct ancestor is their son Hubbard Burdick, who was born in 1676 in Westerly, Washington Co., RI, and married Hannah Maxson in Westerly in 1714. My direct line (their grandson James) moved up to Canada after the War. There are a bunch of historical quotations about James up at a page of the Burdick surname newsetter:

The Hubbards and the Burdicks were both big clans. It appears Burdick was an unusual surname in early New England, but I'm not sure how common Hubbard was.

Anyway, as to your other possible match:

My Williams is Keziah/Cazia Williams, who was born in 1686 in CT and married John Loveland in what's now Glastonbury (then part of Wethersfield), Hartford Co., CT in 1708. Public genealogies list her parents as Thomas Williams and Hannah Hogg, but I haven't done as much research on her as on most of the people in my tree yet, so I'm not sure if this is correct info.
