William Mullins "married a woman named Alice, but her maiden name has not been identified. Longstanding claims that her maiden name is Atwood, or Poretiers, are without basis."

  1. 1.0 1.1 Anderson, Robert Charles. The Great Migration Begins: Immigrants to New England, 1620-1633. (Boston: New England Historic Genealogical Society, 1995).

    MARRIAGE: By 1593 Alice _____ (assuming she is the mother of all the children) who died the first winter (per Bradford), but she was named in his (probably noncuperative) will dated 2 April 1621.

  2.   "The Will of William Mullins", in Massachusetts Society of Mayflower Descendants. Mayflower Descendant: An Illustrated Quarterly Magazine of Pilgrim Genealogy, History and Biography, 1:231-2.

    A copy of her husband's "evidently nuncupative" will, made 2 Apr 1621, the original "probably written 21 February, 1620, old style, the day of William Mullin's death", mentioning Alice, was sent back to England on the Mayflower in early April 1621 by Governor Carver. There appears to have been no note that Alice (and son Joseph) had also perished, which would have been expected if they had, so it is presumed Alice was still alive in early April. A daughter, Sarah (Mullins) Blunden, who was still in England, was made named to administrate the estate 23 Jul 1621.
