Joan Hurst Tilley
Birth: Mar. 13, 1568
Bedford Borough
Bedfordshire, England
Death: 1621
Plymouth County
Massachusetts, USA

wife of John Tiley and Thomas Rogers.

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 Tilly 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)
