Elinor Billington

d. after Mar 1642/3

Elinor married John Billington around 1607 and traveled on Mayflower with him and their two sons, John and Francis.

The Billington family was particularly troublesome for the early colony. Elinor's husband John became the first in the colony to be hanged for murder in 1630. In 1636, Elinor was put in the stocks for slandering John Doane. She remarried in 1638 to a man named Gregory Armstrong.
