John Howland

c. 1592 - 1673

John Howland was about 28 when he traveled on Mayflower as a single man. During the voyage, he went on deck during a particularly bad storm and was swept overboard, but he managed to grab on to a rope and was saved.

John married fellow passenger Elizabeth Tilley in 1624, and with her had 10 children. He died in Plymouth in 1673 at over 80 years of age.
