Isaac Allerton was possibly from Suffolk, England. He came with his wife, Mary (Norris) Allerton from Newbury, Berkshire. They brought with them their 3 children, Bartholomew Allerton, age 7, Remember Allerton, age 5, and Mary Allerton, age 3. Isaac was married three times, 1st wife Mary (Norris), 2nd wife Fear (Brewster), and 3rd wife Joanna (Swinnerton). He was elected assistant to Governor Bradford in 1621. In 1627, he was sent to London to negotiate the buyout from the London investors. Isaac Allerton engaged the Pilgrims’ joint-stock company in business ventures that led the colony deep into debt and was removed and replaced by Edward Winslow.
The Mayflower left England in September 1620 with 102 men, women and children bound for Virginia. After 65 days they arrived far north of their preferred destination. They created a government on arrival forming the Mayflower Compact, which stated the colonists would create “laws, ordinances, acts, constitutions, and offices…,” follow their Christian faith, work together for the common good, and be loyal subjects to King James.
