Disputed Origins

Claimed parents of Edward, John Douty and Anne Holland, are at best not properly documented and are based on a fraudulent genealogy-- one of many published by the notorious genealogist fraud Gustave Anjou (c1863-1942).[15]

Another claim, circulated widely on the internet, is that he was baptized 14 May 1598 in St. Maryle Strand, Thurburton Hills, Suffolk, England, son of John. This is just a perversion of the fictional Shropshire origins, and this record is, again, completely mythical. To begin with, there is no such place as Thurburton Hills, Suffolk. Further, the parish of St. Mary le Strand is in London not Suffolk, and contains absolutely no baptismal entries for any Edward Doty's from 1595 to 1600.

There are no fewer than eight known genuine Edward Doty baptisms that occurred between 1585 and 1605, but none have been conclusively identified as the Edward Doty of the Mayflower.

A subsequently removed web page, "MORE FRAUDULENT LINEAGES," still viewable through the WayBack machine, lists the individuals that Anjou fraudulently documented, including Edward Doty. (Last accessed 25 January 2014.)

For more information on this hoax, see The American Genealogist, 63:215.

Wives and Marriages

Edward Doty, the Mayflower Passenger, does not seem to be the person who married Winifred Warner. A record of a marriage between Winifred Warner and Edward Doty has been found in the English records.[citation needed] It is not known, however, if this Edward Doty is the same person as the Mayflower Passenger. Because the identity of her husband is in question, we are removing her from this profile.

It is known from Bradford's History[16] that Edward Doty was married twice. The identity of his second wife was Faith Clarke. She was the mother of his children.

Biographical Narrative

Edward Doty was born about 1599 in England. He was described in Mourt’s Relation as “of London,” but he may not have been born there.

Edward Doty was a passenger on the Mayflower, 1620, as a servant to Stephen Hopkins and his family. There was also another Hopkins’ servant, Edward Lester, with whom Doty fought a duel. He was a freeman of Plymouth in 1633. Edward Doty appeared in the Plymouth courts on numerous occasions, both as plaintiff and defendant, for fighting, slandering, trespass and debt.

On 18 June 1621 he fought a duel with Edward Leister, which would become the Colony's first (and only) duel. Neither were seriously injured, and both were subsequently punished by having their heels tied to their neck. However, their punishment was cut short due to their apparent suffering.
Doty was in court on a number of occasions, mostly in civil disputes.
On2 January 1632/3, Edward Doty was sued by three different people: John Washburn, Joseph Rogers, and William Bennett. It all appears to have been a disagreement about a trade of some hogs; John Washburn's case was thrown out, Joseph Rogers was awarded four bushels of corn.
In William Bennett's case, Edward Doty was found guilty of slander, and fined 50 shillings.
Two years later, in March 1633/4, Edward Doty was fined 9 shillings and 11 pence for drawing blood in a fight with Josias Cooke.
In January 1637/8, Doty was fined for assaulting George Clarke.
In 1639, Edward Doty posted "bail" for John Coombes, who was charged with giving out poisoned drinks. There were a number of other civil disputes and court matters that Edward Doty was involved with. And however disagreeable in personality, Edward Doty was mostly involved in simple civil disputes and was never in any serious official trouble.[citation needed]

In his list of Mayflower passengers, Governor Bradford reported that Edward Dotey “by a second wife hath seven children,” although no evidence of a first marriage has been found. He married Faith Clarke on January 6, 1634/5, and had nine children. After his death she married John Phillips and moved to Marshfield. She died there and was buried December 21, 1675.

He died August 23, 1655, in Plymouth. His estate totaled £137 19s 6d., of which £60 was in land.

Notes

Edward Doty (d.August 23, 1655) was a Mayflower passenger, a signer of the Mayflower Compact, and a permanent settler at Plymouth colony. His surname was not a common one and sometimes appears as Doten, Dotey or Day. In his will his name is spelled Dotten.

He came as a servant to Stephen Hopkins but it appears to have been more in the role of apprentice. Hopkins is believed to have married Elizabeth Fisher at Whitechapel, London and it is likely, therefore, that Edward Doty was born in the vicinity of London. Statements that he was born in Shropshire, England, on May 14, 1598, or baptized on the same date in St. Mary le Strand, Thurburton Hills, Suffolk, England, are complete fabrications. Doty's ancestry is unknown. The passenger lists indicates he was "of London", but it is not known if it was the place of his birth. NOTE; Two entries in the LDS International Genealogical Index give County Shropshire as a birthplace for Edward Doty in 1599. however, both references are based upon allegations made by Gustave Anjou that are believed to be fictitious.
Doty was one of two indentured servants under Stephen Hopkins, the other one being Edward Leister, and as such accompanied Hopkins and his family aboard the Mayflower. On November 11, 1620, while the Mayflower was anchored off Cape Cod, forty-one of the adult males, including servants, signed the Mayflower Compact; Doty and Leister were among the signers.
Doty was a member of the third exploratory party, led by Myles Standish and including John Carver, William Bradford, Edward Winslow, John Tilley and his son Edward, John Howland, Richard Warren, Stephen Hopkins, and several crewmen from the Mayflower, that departed on December 6, 1620, in a shallop to search for a suitable site for settlement. This famous journey of exploration of Cape Cod Bay led to the discovery of Plymouth Harbor and the selection of Plymouth as the new home of the Pilgrims.
On June 18, 1621, Doty and Edward Leister fought a duel with swords and daggers which would become the Colony's first and only duel. One was wounded in the hand, and the other in the thigh. Both were publicly punished by having their ankles tied to their necks. Their punishment was cut short after about an hour due to their apparent suffering. The first Pardon by a Governor in the New World. Over the years Edward frequently appeared in court as a plaintiff or defendant. Most of the lawsuite were civil disputes, but some were complaints against him for trespassing (unfenced cow and pigs), assault and battery, and breaking the peace. He was on the losing side in the majority of these cases. He was said to have had something of a temper and was quick to stand up for himself against any perceived wrongs.
In 1624 Edward received his share of land allotment and in 1627 an allotment was given to "heads of families and young men of prudence". Edward was also given a share, even though he was unmarried, which shows him to have gained the confidence of the governor. The inventory of his estate at the time of his death was listed as a net value of over 130 pounds. This is substancial for the time and showed that the one-time servant had achieved a greater than average level of prosperity during his lifetime.
Doty's name appears in the lists of freemen for 1633 and 1636 and in the 1634 list of males that are able to bear arms.
Edward may have married twice. but the name of his first wife is unknown. His second wife was Faith Clarke, daughter of Thurston Clarke, both of whom arrived at Plymouth on the Francis in April 1634. Doty and Faith Clarke were married on January 6, 1635. Their children were Edward, John, Thomas, Samuel, Desire, Elizabeth, Isaac, Joseph, and Mary. Bradford tells us in his journal of Plymouth Plantation states in early 1651 "But 'Edward Doty, by his second wife hath seven children, and that both he and they are living.' [18]

Doty had settled at Plymouth Massachusetts where the oldest house is the Doty House and the oldest Wharf was named Doty. In 1624 he was granted land on Watson Hill, Plymouth, for a home lot. One of his first deeds on record is dated July 12, 1637; Edward Doty to Richard Dery, signed with a mark. On 7 March 1652 he was recorded as one of thirty-four purchasers of land at the Dartmouth Tract. He received one full share of the land. His many recorded transactions indicate he became a man of property.
Edward and Faith had nine children. The births of Isaac and Joseph appear in the Plymouth Vital Records. Edward was identified in his father's will, and John, Desire, Elizabeth, and Mary were named in their mother's will. Sons Thomas and Samuel are identified by their sales of the lands inherited from their father. Each of the sons disposed of his share of the land in Dartmouth bequeathed to them by their father: Edward Jr on 16 Oct 1665, John and Thomas on 17 May 1667, Samuel on 10 July 1668, Isaac on 5 July 1672, and Joseph on 13 May 1672.[19]
