ROBERT FULLER, of Redenhall, England, who in the beginning of the seventeenth century, lived in comfortable circumstances, with his wife and some six or eight children, sons and daughters, for whom he provided amply at his death according to his will which was dated May 19, 1614, and proved May 31 of that year, the inventory being filed by his son Thomas, June 16, 1614. He names his wife, Frances; son, Thomas, "eldest;" sons, Edward and Samuel; daughters, Ann and Elizabeth; and "Mary Fuller, my daughter;" all legacies to be paid by son Thomas, and the rest of the estate divided, one-half to wife, Frances, and one-half between his four children, Edward, Ann, Elizabeth, and Mary. His grandson, John, "son of my son John" to receive his portion when of age. Wife, Frances, and son, Thomas, executors. (N. E. H. G. Reg., Vol. 55, p. 415.) - [2]

Edward FULLER was christened on 4 Sep 1575 in Redenhall, Norfolk, England. (3783)(3784) (3785) (3786) MacGunnigle says this is "perhaps" his christening date/place. He moved before 1620 to Leiden, Holland. (3787) He was among a group of English separatists living there for a while. He emigrated on 11 Nov 1620 to Plymouth, Plymouth Colony. (3788)(3789) (114)(3790) (3791) Edward Fuller came on the Mayflower with his brother Samuel, wife Ann, and son Samuel. His son Matthew came 20 years later. The Mayflower left Southampton, England on 16 Sep, sighted land at Cape Cod on 19 Nov, and landed at Plymouth 26 Dec 1620. On 21 Nov 1620, Edward Fuller was one of 41 men who signed the Mayflower Compact. It was an agreement providing for the temporary government of the colony by the will of the majority, and therefore the first commitment to Democracy in America. He died about 11 Jan 1621 in Plymouth, Plymouth Colony.(3792) (3793) Both Edward and his wife died "soon after they came ashore" during the winter. . Parents: Robert FULLER (Yeoman) and Sara DUNKHORN. He married to Wife about 1602 in England.(3794) I assumed that they were married one year prior to the birth of their eldest child. This is not necessarily inconsistent with Anderson (584) who says "by about 1605" Children were: Captain Matthew FULLER , Dr. Samuel FULLER.
