John 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 firstly 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.
