Tilley was a passenger on the Mayflower. He died in the first winter. John Tilley married Joan Hurst Sept 20, 1596 in England. Joan Hurst was the daughter of William and Rose Hurst. Joan had been married first to a Mr. Curtis and had a daughter, Joan, who was a step-daughter of John Tilley. John and Joan Tilley had four children: John, Rose, Robert, and Elizabeth.

John's children, John, Rose, Robert, and his step-daughter, Joan, stayed in England; the girls being married and the boys engaged in apprenticeships. It was not until a descendant of one of the children left in England applied for membership in Society of Mayflower Descendants based on his ancestor, John Tilley, that the information that Elizabeth was not an only child was known on this side of the Atlantic.

Joan Hurst was born in 1567/8 in Henlow, Bedford, England, the daughter of William and Rose (Marshe) Hurst.

She was married first to Thomas Rogers in 1593 (not related to the Mayflower passenger Thomas Rogers). With her husband Thomas, she had a daughter Joan, baptized on 26 May 1594 in Henlow.

When Thomas died, around 1594, she remarried John Tilley in 1596. John and Joan (Hurst) (Rogers) Tilley came on the Mayflower in 1620, bringing with them their daughter Elizabeth. Joan, along with her husband, died the first winter at Plymouth, orphaning their 13-year old daughter Elizabeth in the New World.

Elizabeth would marry Mayflower passenger John Howland 3 years later. Reference made in GSMD Five Generation "Silver Book" 2006 edition. Volume 23, Part one, page 1 under #1 John Howland, identifying Joan as mother of Elizabeth. Bio by: Ronald Keyes
