James Chilton was born in England around 1556. He was a resident of Canterbury. 

James Chilton was part of the Pilgrim Separatist community in Leiden. In 1620, he journeyed to Plymouth on the Mayflower with his wife and daughter Mary. James Chilton died before the Mayflower reached Plymouth, on 8 December 1620, while the ship was anchored in Provincetown Harbor. His wife died shortly thereafter. 

James Chilton's daughter Mary later married John Winslow. Click here for information about Mary Chilton. Another daughter, Isabella, emigrated to Plymouth in a later ship.
