John Alden

b. circa 1598, d. 22 September 1687
Birth*circa 1598John Alden was born circa 1598 in England.1
(Adult Male) Mayflower Passenger9 November 1620John Alden was about 21 years old when he sailed as the ship's cooper (barrel-maker) onboard the Mayflower from Plymouth, England to Plymouth Colony in what is now Massachusetts. When the Mayflower departed Plymouth, England on 6 Sep 1620, she was carrying 102 passengers, including three pregnant women. During the voyage one baby, Oceanus Hopkins, was born making a total of 103 passengers. Three days before land was sighted, passenger William Button died, so when the Mayflower arrived there were again 102 passengers. A full list of the passengers may be accessed by clicking on the PDF icon at the end of this section and those included in this project so far include adult males John Alden, Francis Cooke and James Chilton, adult females Susanna (Furner) Chilton, young male John Cooke, and young females Priscilla Mullins and Mary Chilton.

During the weeks ahead, while everyone still "lived" on the ship, the men explored the area looking for a place to build their settlement. Another baby, Peregrine (meaning "wanderer") White, son of William and Susannah, was born in America onboard the Mayflower on 20 Nov, the first English child born to the Pilgrims in the New World. The White's servant, Edward Thompson, died on 4 Dec, followed shortly by 7 year old Jasper More, one of the four illegitimate children placed on the Mayflower in the care of the William Brewster family by their mother's humiliated husband. Two of the other More children died as well. And, tragically, Dorothy May Bradford, William Bradford's wife, slipped over the side of the anchored Mayflower and drowned. In early December the group decided to move the ship and look somewhere else for a settlement location. The ship and its passengers left Provincetown Harbor on 15 Dec. Two days later on 17 Dec, the Mayflower dropped anchor at Plymouth Harbor and on 21 Dec the first landing party arrived at the site of what would become the settlement of Plymouth. The weather, however, was so terrible they could not begin work on shore for several days. In the meantime, the Mayflower had become a hospital ship, the passengers suffering from colds, coughs, fevers and scurvy. James Chilton had died even before the Mayflower arrived in Plymouth Harbor. Richard Britteridge passed away the day the ship arrived, and two days later Solomon Prower, the stepson of Christopher Martin, the ship's designated "governor", died. The following day Mary Allerton gave birth to a stillborn son.

By the end of January 1621, enough of the settlement had been built to begin unloading provisions from the Mayflower, however the emigrants' ordeal was far from over. With two and sometimes three people dying a day during February and March, almost everyone had lost a loved one. Christopher Martin died in early January, his wife Mary soon after. The Rigsdale, Tinker and Turner families were completely wiped out, followed by Susannah Chilton whose husband James had died while the ship was at Provincetown Harbor. The Chilton's 13 year old daughter Mary had become an orphan. Also orphaned that first winter were 17 year old Joseph Rogers, 12 year old Samuel Fuller, 18 year old John Crackston, 17 year old Priscilla Mullins and 13 year old Elizabeth Tilley, who also lost her aunt and uncle, Edward and Ann Tilley. By mid-March, William Bradford, Myles Standish, Francis Eaton and Isaac Allerton, who had three children between the ages of eight and four, had all become widowers. When William White died, his widow Susannah was left with their newborn son Peregrine and 5 year old Resolved. Susannah was the plantation's only surviving widow. By that first spring, 52 of the 102 who had originally arrived at Provincetown were dead. Half, however, survived. And, miraculously, the families of William Brewster, Francis Cooke, Stephen Hopkins and John Billington were completely untouched by all the disease. The remaining "Pilgrims" worked, prayed and fought together and their settlement of Plimouth Plantation in Plymouth Colony had begun.2,3,4
(Signer) Mayflower Compact11 November 1620John Alden was one of the 41 adult males who signed the Mayflower Compact on 11 November 1620 onboard the Mayflower which was at anchor in what is now Provincetown Harbor, Plymouth Colony, Massachusetts (Plymouth Colony). All 41 of the adult male members on the Mayflower signed the Compact. It outlined the first written laws for the new land, determined authority within the settlement and was observed as "the law" until 1691. The Compact established that the colony of mostly persecuted Separatists was to be free of English law. It was devised to set up a government from within themselves and was written by those to be governed. When creating the Mayflower Compact, the signers believed that covenants were not only to be honored between God and man, but also between each other. They had always honored covenants as part of their righteous integrity and agreed to be bound by this same principle with the Compact. John Adams and many historians have referred to the Mayflower Compact as the foundation of the U.S. Constitution written more than 150 later.2,5,6
Marriage*12 May 1622He married Priscilla Mullins on 12 May 1622 in Plymouth, Plymouth Colony, Massachusetts (Plymouth Colony).
(Original Proprietor) Land Grant1656John Alden was among the fifty-four Duxbury men listed in 1645 as original proprietors for the development of the town that would become Bridgewater, Plymouth Colony, Massachusetts (Plymouth Colony). Two others, Reverend James Keith and Samuel Edson, were added to the group later, and when the town of Bridgewater was actually incorporated in 1656 there were a total of fifty-six. Of these proprietors, only eighteen, about one-third, actually relocated and became residents of the new plantation. John Alden was one of those who never relocated his family and moved to Bridgewater.

The area known as the Bridgewaters was originally inhabited by Wampanoag who called it Saughtuchquett (Satucket). In 1642 when the township of Marshfield was separated from Duxbury and became its own distinct entity, Duxbury petitioned the court for additional land “to the westward” in compensation.

The General Court granted their petition in 1645 and six trustees, Captain Myles Standish, John Alden, George Soule, Constant Southworth, John Rogers, and William Brett were appointed to divide the land. The action by the General Court was primarily an authority to purchase land, and Captain Standish, Samuel Nash, and Constant Southworth were appointed to make the purchase. The deed was signed on 23 Mar 1649.

The Bridgewater lands were divided among the inhabitants “by an agreement among themselves”. Unfortunately, there is no record to tell us how the town proceeded to agree to their division, or how, by whom, or when it was determined what residence or other circumstance should entitle anyone to a share.

Death*22 September 1687He died on 22 September 1687 in Duxbury, Plymouth County, Massachusetts (Plymouth Colony).1

(Neighbor) Estate and Land25 September 1730Deacon Joseph Alden was a neighbor whose land bordered that of the deceased Mary Bolton, a single woman late of Bridgewater. He served on a special committee of five freeholders with Joseph Edson, Eleazer Carver, Daniel Hudson and Jonathan Sprague who were appointed by Judge Isaac Winslow on 15 June 1730 to inventory the deceased's land and to determine, in their best judgment, an equitable division of her real estate, which they estimated to be 6 acres. Their recommendation was submitted to the court on 10 August 1730, approved on 21 August 1730, and the lands were distributed in ten equal shares or lots on 25 September 1730 to Mary's mother, Sarah (Chesebrough) Bolton, and siblings, John Bolton, Samuel Bolton, Sarah (Bolton) Leonard, Elizabeth (Bolton) May, Nicholas Bolton, Elisha Bolton, Joseph Bolton, Nathaniel Bolton, and Abigail Bolton.2,3
(Plaintiff) Court ActionJohn Bolton, Daniel Alden and Joseph Alden filed a complaint with the Plymouth County Court of General Sessions requesting that relief be granted to each of them as provided by the law regulating mills. The complainants said that in late 1730, Benjamin Hayward and Zachariah Whitman raised a pond on the Town River in Bridgewater and caused considerable damage to their grass, and "that the trespass is yearly continued." The court ordered Hayward and Whitman to show cause why they have continued to flow the complainants’' meadow.4
(Neighbor) Land Transfer12 February 1732Joseph Alden was a neighbor of Joseph Bolton of Bridgewater, in the County of Plymouth in New England, who signed a deed agreement on 12 February 1732 to sell a certain piece of land in Bridgewater, Plymouth County, to his brother-in-law Michael May and sister Elizabeth (Bolton) May, his Wife, also of Bridgewater, for the sum of One Hundred and Ten Pounds. The deed was witnessed by Samuel Bolton and Nathaniel Bolton, brothers of Joseph Bolton, on 5 Mar 1732 and recorded on 13 Dec 1732. The land was described as containing by estimation twelve acres, be there more or less, bounded as follows: Beginning at a Stake and Heap of Stones by the Highway which is the South Easterly corner and from there bounded Northerly as the fence now stands next to his brother Elisha Bolton's land to a Stake and Heap of Stones by the Side of the Swamp and then running North Easterly to the land of Joseph Alden, and then bounded by the land of Joseph Alden Westerly to the land of John Willis and then bounded by the land of John Willis Southerly to the Highway and then by the Highway to the bounds first mentioned.5
Death*22 December 1747He died on 22 December 1747 in Bridgewater, Plymouth County, Massachusetts Bay Province (New England).1
Burial*He was buried at Bridgewater.1
