  • Notes 
    • [Notes given to me by Ellen R. Baker. She used information from Tedd Rowley's site, Bill Barton of Stamford, CT, and John Zimmerman's site.  She also received information from Glenn Kelley, Jan Stevens, Greg Estep, Albert Nye, Helen Vunk, Deanna Smith, Sandy Krask Austin, David C. Crankshaw, Robert Stewart, Maria Park, and Steve Schack.  Also used information from Bruce Campbell MacGunnigle: "Family of Edward Fuller- Mayflower Families Through Five Generation series, Vol. 4 Plymouth, MA; General Society of Mayflower Descendants, 1995. (also known as the "silver books" series.)]

      Edward was one of the Puritans who left England because of religious persecution.  In the time of Queen Elizabeth I (1558 to 1603), the policy was to enforce absolute uniformity in religious belief.  The Puritans were targeted because of their persistent attempts to purify the church and they had stopped with the ceremonies required by the dominate religion.  King James I, who succeeded Queen Elizabeth  I, also was intolerant of other religions.

      Edward and his wife were among the English Separatist living in Leiden, Holland.  He then joined the pilgrims at Southhampton, England and then embarked first in the "Speedwell" and when the ship proved unseaworthy, transferred to the Mayflower and with his wife and young son, Samuel, and continued the voyage to the New World.  He was the twenty-first signer of the "Mayflower Compact". He and his wife both died soon after their arrival and are buried in unmarked graves on Coles Hill at Plymouth, Plymouth, Massachusetts, he had two children, Matthew and Samuel.

      note: there are several possible women that could have been Edward's wife.  The following were found in the parish register abstracts of the I.G.I. of Edward Fuller's marrying, during the time he would have most likely married: Amy Lee (m. Nov 21, 1596,Abinger, Surrey, England). Amy Carpenter (m. Nov 25, 1579 in Carlton, Bedford, England), Tomasine Sheppard, (m. May 2, 1597 in St. Gregory, Norwich, Suffolk, England), Joan Raven (m. Oct 28, 1599 in Woodham, Walter, Essex, England), Elizabeth Buck (m. July 25, 1602 in Great Finborough, Suffolk, England), Barbara Colman (m. Jun 10 1606, Chigwell, Essex, England), and Agnes Croucher (m. Jan 14, 1607 in West Horsley, Surrey, England). [1]
