In the “Mayflower” came Edward Fuller and Dr. Samuel Fuller, December 20, 1620. Edward died in the “first sickness,” 1621, leaving a son Samuel, who settled on Cape Cod. Dr. Samuel Fuller was the first physician in the colony. He married (according to Leyden records) (first) Elsie Glasscock; (second) Agnes Carpenter, but his children are by his third wife, Bridget Lee, of Plymouth. She came to Massachusetts on the ship “Ann” in 1623. She was married to Dr. Samuel Fuller in Leyden, in 1617. Their first child was born in Leyden, but died soon after their arrival at Plymouth.

Mr. Samuel Fuller who departed this life Aug. ye 17, 1695, in ye 71st year of his age.
