Edward Margesson came on the Mayflower as an adult, by himself. He signed the "Mayflower Compact." Other than the fact he died sometime the first winter, likely between January and March 1621, nothing else is known about him. A search of baptism records in England has identified one potential candidate, an Edmund Margetson baptized on 23 November 1586 at Swannington, co. Norfolk, son of Robert. However, with no other supporting details beyond a name, nothing conclusive can be determined.
