About John Billington, Jr.

BILLINGTON, JOHN-A son of John and Eleanor, John Billington sailed with them on the 1620 Mayflower. In 1621 he wandered off and was lost for five days before being taken by Indians to Nauset. On learning his location from Massasoit, the colonists sent ten men to rescue him, and they found him with some Indians they recognized as those who had attacked them when they first came to Cape Cod. However, the Indians returned the boy peacefully, thus averting a possible cause for war (Bradford [Ford] 1:222-24; Mourt's Relation, pp. 49-52). We know the younger John Billington died sometime between the 1627 cattle division, when he obtained a share, and September 1630, when Bradford (For d 2:407) stated that he died before his father was hanged.
