The Chilton Family's Relationship to Me
Written and researched by Margaret Odrowaz-Sypniewska


Lyonell/Lionel Chilton was a yeoman who owned large amounts of land. He was married first to ______? and second to Isabell Furner, the widow of Francis Furner. Frances Furner named Susannah Furner, his daughter, in his will, dated July 27, 1579.


James Chilton, Jr. (bef. 1556-1620) was most likely born in Canterbury, Kent County, England, in 1556. There is a record of a Mrs. Chilton being excommunicated on June 12, 1609 (Paulick, 406). This may be the reason they came to Massachusetts? They were married around April 1586 (Old Style). James Chilton is listed as 63 years of age in 1619. He died in Cape Cod Harbor (Provincetown) while aboard the Mayflower on December 18, 1620. Susanna [nee Furner] is mentioned in James' will which was dated September 7, 1582. Many think that James was the son of Lyonell Chylton. However, we do not know the name of Lyonell's first wife. James married Susannah Furner sometime before 1587. Susan is thought to be the daughter of his step-mother, Isabell Furner. A Susan Furner died after January 11, 1620/1621.

An Annie Chilton was baptized on November 5, 1573.


    The Children of James and Susan [nee Furner] Chilton were:

  1. Isabella Chilton was baptized in St. Paul's Parish in Canterbury on January 15, 1586. No death record has been found for Isabella. Isabella married Roger Chandler (of Colchester, England) on July 21, 1615 in Leyden, Holland. Their children were:

    Samuel Chandler (b. Oct. 15, 1622)
    Sarah Chandler (b. Oct. 15, 1622)
    Mary Chandler (b. after 1622)
    Martha Chandler (b. after 1622).

    The Chandlers came to Plymouth in 1629/1630.

  2. Jane Chilton was baptized in St. Paul's Parish on June 8, 1586.
  3. Mary Chilton(1593-1679) was baptized in St. Paul's Parish on November 2, 1593.
  4. Joel Chilton was baptized in St. Martin's Parish on November 2, 1593.
  5. Elizabeth Chilton was baptized in St. Martin's Parish on July 14, 1594.
  6. James Chilton, Jr (1). was baptized in St. Martin's Parish on August 22, 1596.
  7. Ingle Chilton was baptized in St. Paul's Parish, Canterbury on April 29, 1599. We think that Ingle was married in Leyden, Holland, to Robert Nelson, on August 27, 1622 ("Engeltgen Gilten").
  8. Christian Chilton. (2) (f) was baptized in St. Peter's Parish, Sandwich, on September 26, 1601.
  9. James Chilton III was baptized in St. Peter's Parish, Sandwich, on September 11, 1603. We can assume then that the first James must have died young.
  10. Mary Chilton was baptized in St. Peter's Parish, Sandwich, England, on May 30, 1607. Mary died in Boston before May 1, 1679. Mary Chilton married John Winslow of Droitwich, Worchestershire, England, between July 1623 and May 22, 1627. John was born/baptized on May 21, 1674. His parents were: Edward and Magdalen (Ollyver) Winslow. Edward was the brother of Pilgrim Edward Winslow. Both John and Mary are buried in King's Chapel Cemetary, Boston, Massuchusetts.
