Captain Jonathan Davis married a second time, April 24th,

I7^ Tilley and his wife ( )

Tilley, and that of their daughter Elizabeth. Tilley. I was guided by the state-
ments made by Miss Annie A. Baxtun in her published Signers of the May-
flower Compact, Part II, p. i^ New York City, 1897. Miss Haxtun there states
speerffcally that John Tilley (the r6th signer) was married twice, 1st to

Elizabeth , and 2nd to Bridget Van der Velde. Miss Haxtun in her time

was regarded as good authority and hence my acceptance of her statement.
Since the compilation of this portion of these records Mr. George Ernest
Bowman has conclusively proven that the John Tilley who married Bridget
Van der Velde in Leyden, Feb. 13, 1615, was not John Tilley the i6th signer of
the Compact. (See Mayflower Descendant, vol. x, pp. 65-6-7.) I have there-
fore corrected my article on the authority of Mr. Bowman, whose article, at the



I9I2.] Copy of Fa?nily Records of E lias Mulford 6l

time (April, 191 1) of going to press, had not been brought to my notice. As
Miss Haxtun's authority for stating that the baptismal name of John 1 illey s
wife was Elizabeth is not given in her work, and as I find no further authority
for such statement, I have corrected my article so that both the baptismal
name and the maiden surname of John Tilley's wife remain unstated.
