    My 9th great-grandmother was Desire Howland, daughter of Mayflower passengers John Howland and Elizabeth Tilley Howland.

    I like my PB namesake, Cotton Mather, and my avatar, Increase Mather, and especially their relative Seaborn Cotton (because he was born during a voyage on the Atlantic!).

    Amazing though that most of the theologians had similar names.
    John (Edwards, Bunyan, Owen, Flavel, Preston, Milton, Cotton...)
    William (Whitaker, Gurnall, Pemble, Ames, Perkins, Guthrie...)
    Thomas (Watson, Vincent, Jacomb, Thatcher, Hooker, Shepard, Manton, Brooks, Cobbet, Doolittle ...)
    Samuel (Rutherford, Lee, Bolton, Davies, Sewell, Ward...)
    Richard (Sibbes, Baxter, Alliene...)

    There are other common ones too; Edward, Stephen, Robert...

    I am here and now due to the God's providence in John Alden stepping aboard for this voyage.

    I sent an email last on Friday to my grandfather who is a genealogist for his family and this is what he sent me:

    Very true! Not to mention all the John Browns in Reformed Church history....of Haddington, of Wamphray, of Edinburgh, of Priesthill, etc.

    Very impressive pedigree! :pilgrim::up:

    John Alden was accused of witchcraft in 1692!

    Take a look at his examination . His response was very impressive!

    The John Alden who married Priscilla Mullins died in 1687. It was his son, Capt. John Alden, Jr., who was, at the age of 70, accused of witchcraft.

    Ah, that explains it! I wondered how old he must've been.

    By the way, speaking of the witch trials, today is Judge Jonathan Corwin's birthday (1640). He's known as the quiet judge who never said anything.

    I wonder if Dweezle & Moon Unit Zappa had Puritan roots?:bigsmile:

    The names of my sisters and daughters (in no particular order, to foil the ubiquitous identiy thieves)

    Grace, Verity, Peace, Joy, Mercy, Faith

    cupotea Puritan Board Junior

    Perhaps that's what the creators of Keeping up Appearances had in mind with Hyacinth, Rose, Daisy, and Violet Bucket (don't forget, it's pronounced Bouquet)!

    These links will prove most helpful for the Puritan fiction that I'm currently working on. Thank you, Virginia Huguenot!

    You're very welcome! :pilgrim: I'm working on a Huguenot historical novel myself and have had occasion to research sixteenth-century Huguenot names. :calvin:

    How interesting! What sort of novel is it, genre-wise? My Puritan stories are usually supernatural/horror with a Christian twist and I'd be interesting in hearing what sort of thing you write as well.

    VirginiaHuguenot Puritanboard Librarian

    Interesting! I wrote a brief description of my plot which can be found here.

    Yes, I noticed that title! ;) Sadly, the book's blurb didn't live up to the possibilities of its title. (I think it was just another bodice-ripping romance)

    You're right, of course! ;) Best wishes on your own book! :pilgrim:
