There was a John Turner who signed the Mayflower Compact. In William Bradford’s list of "Increasings and Decreasings" for 1650, he wrote "John Turner and his two sons all died in the first sickness." No Turners today descend from actual Mayflower pilgrims though many try to make the case that later Turners were relatives. I don't think so.
