William Bradford’s list of passengers on the Mayflower includes the family of William Mullins (The Mayflower Descendant, vol. 1:9):

           Mr. William mullines, and his wife; and 2 children Joseph and Priscila and a servant Robert Carter 
           The fate of this family is given in Bradford’s list of Increasings and Decreasings (The Mayflower Descendant, vol. 1:13): 
           Mr. Molines, and his wife, his sone, and his servant dyed the first winter.  Only his daughter Priscila survived, and married with John Alden, who are both living [in 1650] and have 11 [sic] children.
         The nuncupative (oral) will of William Mullins probably written 21 February 1621, the day of his death, and copied 2 April 1621 (reprinted here from The Mayflower Descendant, vol. 1:231-232): 
           In the name of God Amen: I comit my soule to God that gave it and my bodie to the earth from whence it came.j  Alsoe, I give my goodes as followeth That Forty poundes in the hand of Goodman Woodes  I give my wife tenn poundes, my sonne Joseph tenn poundes, my daughter Priscilla tenn poundes, and my eldest sonne tenn poundes.  Alsoe I give to my eldest sonne all my debts, bonds, bills (onelye yt forty poundes excepted in the handes of Goodman Wood) given as aforesaid wth all the sotck in his owne handes.  To my eldest daughter I give tenn shillings to be paied out of my sonnes stock.  Furthermore that goodoes I have in Virginia as followoeth  To my wife Alice halfe my goodes & to Joseph and Priscilla the other halfe wquallie to be devided betweene them.

Allsoe, if my sonne William will come to Virginia I give him my share of land  furdermore I give to my twoe Overseers Mr John Carver and Mr Williamson, twentye shillings apiece to see this my will performed desiringe them that he would have an eye over my wife and children and be as fathers and friends to them; Allsoe to have a speciall eye to my man Robert wch has not so approved himselfe as I would he should have done.

                                               John Carver, Giles Heale, Christopher Joanes 
           The will was carried back to England for probate by the Mayflower on her return voyage (ibid.): 
           In the month of July Annon Domini 1621.  On the 23d day issued a commission to Sarah Blunden, formerly Mullins, natural and legitimate daughter of William Mullins, late of Dorking in the County of Surrey, but deceased in parts beyond the seas, seized &c., for administering the goods, rights and credits of the said deceased because in that will he named no executor.  
           Mullins will was discovered in the late 19th century by Henry F. Waters and published as part of his series, Genealogical Gleanings in England, in New England Historical & Genealogical Register, vol. 42:62-63.  The will proves that William died before his wife, son, and servant, who are all mentioned in the instrument, and that Alice and Joseph were still alive when the Mayflower sailed, or else Gov. Carver would have annexed a statement regarding the deaths of the two legatees.  The date of the copy of the will also proves that the Mayflower did not leave New England until after 2 April 1621.  The probate record proves that William Mullins resided at Dorking, co. Surrey. 
           In 1612 William Mullins bought a holding in Dorking with a house and an acre and a half of land and outbuildings between West Street and Back Lane (now Church Street for £122 and took over a mortgage of £200.  He sold this to Ephriam Bothal in May 1919 for £280 (Dorking pamphlet). 
           On 29 April 1616, a warrant was issued to bring “one William Mollins before heir Lordships.”  On 2 May he appeared before the Privy Council and was continued technically in their custody “untill by their Honours’ order hee be dismissed.”  While the reason for this arrest is not given, it was most probably associated with the religious controversies of that time.  The fact that he was a Dissenter may explain why William Mullin’s marriage record is not found in the Parish Register for Dorking, nor are the baptisms of his children. 
           Claims of Huguenot and Plantagenet ancestry for William Mullins are entirely unsupported (see The Mayflower Descendant, vol. 44:39-44)

Biographical Summary of the Alden Children

In order of birth, the children of John and Priscilla are listed and briefly described below. They have ten known children with a possible eleventh, dying in infancy. It is presumed, although not documented, that first three children were born in Plymouth, the remainder in Duxbury.

Note: Zachariah Alden and Henry Alden have both been incorrectly identified as sons of John Alden and Priscilla Mullins in various publications. For information on the genealogy of Henry Alden, see Mayflower Descendant 43:21-29,133-138; 44:27-30,181-184.

--------------------

William Mullins was a fairly well-to-do shoe and boot dealer from Dorking, Surrey, England. He purchased a number of shares in the Pilgrims joint-stock company, becoming one of the Merchant Adventurers. He brought his wife Alice, daughter Priscilla and son Joseph to America on the Mayflower. Only Priscilla would survive the first winter, however. William Mullins made out his death-bed will on 21 February 1620/1, in which he mentions his wife Alice, daughter Priscilla, son Joseph, and married children William and Sarah who were still in Dorking. He also mentions a "Goodman Woodes" who remains unidentified, and a "Master Williamson" which was likely a Dutch pseudonym for William Brewster who was a fugitive at the time (for printing illegal religious pamphlets in Leyden).

William Mullins was a Mayflower passenger in 1620, the tenth signer of the Mayflower Compact, and died at Plymouth, Massachusetts on March 3, 1621. He married Alice ?, who also died at Plymouth, Mass 1621 after April 2nd.

-------------------- In his accounting of the passengers on the Mayflower Bradford included "Mr. William Mullins and his wife and two children, Joseph and Priscilla; and a servant, Robert Carter" [Bradford 442]. In the listing of the fate of these passengers in 1651 he reported that "Mr. Mullins and his wife, his son and his servant died the first winter. Only his daughter Priscila survived, and married with John Alden; who are both living and have eleven children. And their eldest daughter is married and hath five children [Bradford 445]. It has been suggested that he was the William Mullins of Stoke, Surrey, about ten miles from Dorking [English Homes 73-74; Brainerd Anc 217]. This likely identification is aided by a 1616 Privy Council order that may have been a religious trial that motivated William to sell his holding in the Manor of Dorking and emigrate [English Homes 73-74; Brainerd Anc 217-218].
