  •  Notes 
    • from a photocopy of an official copy. The photocopy is in the possesion of the compiler. I believe the original was used by John William Downs {1} for his application to the Mayflower Society. The date on this copy is November 20, 1984.

      Also of note is that Cordelia Higgins name is mispelled as "Clodilia Higgins." I will disregard this as a clerical error since It is clearly listed as "Cordelia" in other sources. She is mentioned multiple times in "Have You Anything to Teach Me?" for instance and always as "Cordelia." I think this is reliable considering the author was her son.
