About This Project

This project is part of the Notables series.

This project focuses on the Alden/Mullins Family Tree, including, but not limited to:

William Mullins

Alice Unknown

John Alden

Priscilla Mullins

John Alden Jr

Elizabeth Alden

Joseph Alden

Sarah Alden

Jonathan Alden

Ruth Alden

Rebecca Alden

Mary Alden

Priscilla Alden

David Alden

This list will eventually encompass the entirety of the 8+gen Alden Kin database.

General Notes:

John Alden's parents are UNKNOWN.

William Mullins' parents are UNKNOWN.

Alice's maiden name and parents are UNKNOWN.

Naming Conventions

Most of the Alden/Mullins line uses the spellings Alden and Mullins so, unless there is a specific reason to use other variants, the standard will remain Alden and Mullins, for the central profiles at least.

Central Profiles

There are presently at least 60 copies of the Alden/Mullins (Mayflower) Tree on Geni. Each copy has between 20 to 1000 profiles in it, depending on how thorough and extensive it is.

Please be aware:

Due to the multiplicity of theories of John Alden's parentage (and a complete lack of evidence) we are not accepting parent links to John Alden at this time. The parent links found during merges will be deleted.

For more on the lack of evidence and multiplicity of theories visit Wikipedia's page [ here].


The following are currently listed as children of John Alden and Priscilla Mullins. As you can see, some of these profiles need to be merged, some data needs correcting, and some might need to be placed elsewhere on the tree. Let's clean up the tree as best we can.

Elizabeth Pabodie (1624-1717) <-- Elizabeth Alden... please use maiden names!

Joseph Alden, Sr. (1627-1695)

Sarah Standish (1630-1688) <-- Sarah Alden... please use maiden names!

John Alden (1627-1701)

Capt. Jonathan Alden (1632-1696)

                                     >> these two are the same

Jonathan Alden (1632-1697)

Ruth Alden (1634-1674)

David Alden (1635-1719)

Mary Alden (1636-1699)

Rebecca Delano (1637-1699) <-- Rebecca Alden... please use maiden names!
