John Crackston, Sr
Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: unknown
Death: 1620

John Crackston came to Plymouth Colony aboard the Mayflower with his son John Jr. The elder John signed the Mayflower Compact on 11 November 1620, but apparently his son was under twenty-one as he did not also sign it. In addition to John Jr., he also had a daughter Anna, whom married Thomas Smith on 12 December 1618 in Leiden. The Crackston surname is extremely rare, especially in England, and there is a marriage record at the parish of Stratford St. Mary, Suffolk of a John Crackston marrying a Catherine Bates on 9 May 1594. Could this be the Pilgrim John Crackston? The timing matches very well with having a daughter Anna marrying in 1618. William Bradford states that elder John died in the first winter, although the exact date of this is unknown. Any descendants of John Crackston would have to be through his daughter Anna. John Jr. died unmarried shortly after the 1627 division of cattle. William Bradford wrote that John Jr. "having lost himself in the woods, his feet became frozen, which put him into a fever, of which he died".
