Fear Allerton née Brewster (c. 1606 - before December 12, 1634) was a woman in Colonial America. She was the third daughter of Mayflower pilgrim William Brewster and his wife Mary, born in Scrooby, Nottinghamshire, England. She was named Fear because at the time of her birth, the Puritans were holding secret meetings and were under constant threat of arrest. Her early years, and indeed her whole life, were full of unrest. In 1608 she moved, along with the other pilgrims, to Amsterdam (and later Leiden).

Fear was only 14 when her parents and two younger brothers, Love and Wrestling, left for America on the Mayflower. She was left in the care of her older siblings, Jonathan (born in 1593) and Patience (born in 1600). Jonathan joined the pilgrims in 1621 on board the Fortune. Fear arrived in America with Patience on board the Anne in July 1623.

Fear married Isaac Allerton, another Mayflower pilgrim, around 1626. He was 20 years her senior. They had a son, Isaac Allerton Jr., born about 1627. There is speculation that they had a daughter, Sarah Allerton, who was baptised on August 13, 1633 and probably died in infancy.

Fear died young, but the exact date is unknown. She died sometime before her sister Patience's death December 12, 1634.

GEDCOM Note

came to America in the 'Ann' in 1623


Fear Brewster was the third daughter of Mayflower Pilgrim William Brewster and his wife Mary, born in Scrooby, Nottinghamshire, England.

Fear's youth, and indeed her entire life, were unsettled because of her father's devotion to religious separatism.

The evidence shows that in 1608, the Brewsters and many other English Brownists (Puritan Separatists) moved from England to Amsterdam, and then to Leiden.

Fear was about 14 years old when her parents and two younger brothers, Love and Wrestling, left for America on the Mayflower. Fear was left in the care of her older siblings, Jonathan and Patience.

By virtue of his education and stature among his fellow Brownists, Fear's father became the senior elder and the leader of the Plymouth Colony.

Jonathan joined the Plymouth Colony in 1621, traveling to the New World aboard the ship, Fortune. Fear arrived in America with her sister, Patience, in about 1623.

Fear married Isaac Allerton, an original Mayflower pilgrim, sometime between 1623 and 1627. Isaac's first wife, Mary, had died in about 1621, having been gravely weakened by a difficult stillbirth aboard the Mayflower in 1620.

Although Isaac was about 20 years Fear's senior, the couple had a daughter, Sarah, born in about 1627, a son, Isaac Jr., born between 1627 and 1630, and a daughter, Rose, born in about 1633.

We know that Fear died young, but the exact date is unknown. The only known evidence is that on December 12, 1634, Governor John Winthrop wrote to his son that both Fear and her sister Patience were dead: "Pestilent fever hath taken away some at Plimouth, amonge others Mr. Prence the Governr his wife and Mr. Allerton's wife."

Some believe that Col. Richard Lee Taylor, a direct descendant of Isaac Jr., was the father of the 12th President of the United States, Zachary Taylor.
