Welcome to the Elder William Brewster Society Website!  The Society meets once every three years at the Mayflower Society General Congress in Plymouth, Massachusetts. Here we meet our cousins and enjoy entertainment and a bountiful buffet.  We welcome new members.

Membership Eligibility

You are eligible to join our society if you can provide documentation demonstrating that you are a direct descendant of William Brewster who sailed to New England on the Mayflower in 1620. However, if you are a current or previously approved member of the General Society of Mayflower Descendant, you may join simply by furnishing a copy of your Approved lineage papers. Membership is $20.00 for a three year membership if you have your newsletter delivered by mail, or $15.00 for a three year membership if you wish your newsletter by email. There is also a $25.00 one time application fee payable with your application.

If you believe you would qualify as a member, we urge you to complete our Lineage Synopsis Form.  When the form is recieved, the Historian will check our databases and include all information it has verified already. It will be up to you to complete the worksheet. The Historian does not do extensive research.  A Worksheet will be sent to you, to complete the research on your line.


If you are already a Mayflower Society member, you can mail your Mayflower paperwork and membership fee and application fee directly to the Historian at:
