  1. ^ While there was no Weld among the names of the 26 male Mayflower passengers currently known to have descendants, genealogists such as Gary Boyd Roberts of New England Historic Genealogical Society have pointed out that tens of millions of Americans (approximately one in seven) has at least one ancestor who was among this group of early settlers. William Weld, whose family has been in Massachusetts since the 1600s, has several Mayflower ancestors from whom he is descended through multiple lines (making Billy Bulger's statement very accurate).

  3. ^ Note that before becoming associated with Texas, the Bush family was another well-established New England family like the Welds and several others mentioned in this article. George H. Bush, for example, was born in Milton, Massachusetts, and raised in Greenwich, Connecticut. See also " earliest confirmed direct ancestor of the Bush political family."
