Facts and Events
William Bradford in his account of Mayflower passengers does not identify the name of Edward Fuller's wife (he reports "Edward Fuller and his wife died soon after they came ashore, but their son Samuel is living and married and hath four children or more"). Savage identifies her only as "Ann," and Virkus repeats the speculation. In the volume of Mayflower Families through FIve Generations about Edward Fuller, the author concludes that Savage most likely confused Ann, the wife of Edward Tilley, with Edward Fuller's wife, as there are no American or English sources that otherwise give her name. There are a half dozen records of marriages of an Edward Fuller that have been found in England, but only one with an Ann, and none a Hopkins.
