      BIOGRAPHICAL SUMMARY: William Bradford, c1650, included in his passenger list of the Mayflower: "Mr Isaack Allerton, and Mary his wife; with .3.children Bartholomew, Remember, and Mary and a servant boy, John Hooke. "He later wrote "Mr.Allerton his wife died with the first, and his servant John Hooke. His son Bartle is married in England but I know not how many children he hath. His daughter Remember is married at Salem and hath three or four children living. And his daughter Mary is married here and hath four children. Himself married again with the daughter of Mr. Brewster and hath one son living by her, but she is long since dead. And he is married again and hath left this place long ago. So I account his increase to be eight, besides his sons in England." On September 26, 1636 Isaac made a deposition in Boston stating he was aged about 53 years.

      Isaac Allerton has a relatively small number of descendants compared to other Mayflower passengers, but is an ancestor to Presidents ZacharyTaylor and Franklin D. Roosevelt.
