    Entry is unreliable. It indicates, without sources, that John and his wife Hannah (Evered) immigrated with her brothers John and Stephen on the James, and then quotes Richard Mather's account of the storms that hit the James and the Angel Gabriel. However, the Evereds sailed on the James of London in July 1635. Mather sailed on the ill-fated James of Bristol. Ayers appears on neither passenger list. Moreover, according to Great Migration, John Evered (b. about 1613) was (probably) the son of John Ayers' sister (no mention of Hannah). His connection to Stephen is unproven. In addition, Great Migration indicates (consistent with Savage) that the first mention of John Ayers in the colonies was in 1640.
