Edward Fuller, son of Robert Fuller, butcher, and Sarah Dunkhorn, was christened on September 4, 1575 at St. Mary's in Redenhall, Norfolk, England, England.
 Edward and Samuel (also a passenger on the Mayflower) and their siblings were named in their father's 1614 will. Edward was left a tenement (after the death of Robert's wife) and twenty pounds
The name of the wife of Edward Fuller remains unknown. Some have suggested that her first name was Ann, but the oldest record with this name seems to be a transcription error made in the nineteenth century. Other names attributed to Mrs. Edward Fuller have been Anne Fuller-White (now merged with Anne Fuller who is actually his sister) and Hannah Lewis. Several marriages have been found for Edward Fullers in English records:
Amy Lee, 21 November 1596, Abinger, Surrey, England;
Ann Carpenter, 25 November 1597, Carlton, Bedford;
Thomasine Sheppard, 2 May 1597, St. Gregory, Norwich, Norfolk;
Joan Raven, 28 October 1599, Woodham Walter, Essex ;
Elizabeth Buck, 25 July 1602, Great Finborough, Suffolk;
Barbara Colman, 10 June 1606, Chigwell, Essex; and
Agnes Croucher, 14 January 1607, West Horsley, Surrey.
Edward and his wife had two sons, Matthew Fuller and Samuel Fuller, who were probably born between 1597 and 1612. The family was probably part of the group of religious dissidents known as Separatists who moved to Leiden, Holland to escape persecution in England. Edward's brother, Dr. Samuel Fuller, belonged to this group. Edward, his wife, and their son, Samuel, left Holland on the Speedwell, and were transferred to the Mayflower, which arrived in the New World at the end of 1620. He and his wife both died the first winter, soon after the Mayflower arrived at Plymouth. The boy, Samuel, was left to the care of Edward's brother, Dr. Samuel Fuller. "Edward Fuller was the 21st signator of the 41 men who signed the Mayflower Compact. It was an agreement providing for the temporary government of the colony by the will of the majority, and therefore the first commitment to Democracy in America."

Samuel Fuller was born about 1608. In 1623 he received three acres of land one acre for himself and one for each of his parents. Samuell Fuller Junior was the third person in the eighth company, living with his uncle Samuel Fuller in the 1627 land division.
