Fuller, Edward

Fuller, Edward

 

Edward was the son of Robert and Sara (Dunkhorn) Fuller of Redenhall, Norfolk, England. Robert's first wife Sara was buried 1 July 1584, and thus would have been the mother of Edward. Edward married, and moved to Leyden, Holland for a short time before coming to America

 

Edward, his wife, and their son Samuel came to America on the Mayflower. They had lived in Leyden, Holland for a short period of time, but originally came From Redenhall, Norfolk, England. Edward's father was a butcher by trade, and his brother Samuel, who also came to America on the Mayflower, was a doctor and deacon. Edward's occupation however remains unknown. He and his wife both died the first winter.

 

The name of his wife is not known. James Savage, in his "Genealogical Dictionary of the First Settlers of New England" says Edward Fuller's wife was named Ann, but there appears to be no evidence to show this is her name.
