Relationship to Merle G Ladd:
10th Great Grandfather
Edward Fuller was the son of Robert and Sara (Dunkhorn) Fuller of Redenhall, Norfolk, England.  Some accounts give his mother as Francis, but Francis appears to be Robert Fuller's second wife.  Robert's first wife Sara was buried 1 July 1584, and thus would have been the mother of Edward Fuller.  Edward Fuller's brother Samuel Fuller also came to America on the Mayflower.  Edward Fuller married, and moved to Leyden, Holland for a short time before coming to America.  

The name of his wife is not known.  James Savage, in his "Genealogical Dictionary of the First Settlers of New England" says Edward Fuller's wife was named Ann, but there is no evidence to show this is in fact the case.

Edward Fuller, his wife, and his son Samuel came to America on the Mayflower.  They had lived in Leyden, Holland for a short period of time, but originally came from Redenhall, Norfolk, England.  Edward Fuller's father was a butcher by trade, and his brother Samuel was a doctor and deacon.  Edward's occupation, however, remains unknown.  He and his wife both died the first winter.
