  • Notes 
    • From FindaGrave:
      A Mayflower passenger.

      John Billington Jr. was born around 1604. His family had some connections to Lincolnshire.

      John sailed on the Mayflower accompanied by his brother Francis and parents John and Eleanor.

      Author David Beale writes of a time when young John "wandered off into the woods and was captured five days later by Nauset Indians, the same hostile Indians the Pilgrims had encountered during their initial exploration around Cape Cod. At the familiar sight of the Pilgrims' muskets, the Nausets gladly turned the young Billington over to the ten men who had come to rescue him!"

      He died in Plymouth Colony some time between May 1627 and September 1630.
