Who was Deacon John Done?

Search for information about the early life of Deacon John Done has been ongoing for many years. In 1986 the John Done Research Committee was formally established by the Doane Family Association.   Research has been focused in three areas :
1. John Done's English Ancestry
2. DNA Research to find John Done's ancestry
3. Research into the life of Deacon John Done in Plymouth (Plimoth).
  The John Done Research Committee continues its efforts. For the results of the research by this committee, please refer to  the following pages:

* A note about the "Doane" vs "Done" spelling:
Research indicates that, apart from a single reference, the Deacon's last name was spelled "Done".   It was only with the Deacon's children that the "Doane " was used.
