All right, it wasn't the Mayflower, but there was a Captain John Smith, and on the same ship he commanded was another John Smith, from whom our line comes. If his name had been unusual, like Preserved Lumpkin, instead of John Smith, which is one of the 10 most common names in English, having two guys named the same on the same caravelle might be beyond coincidence, but I maintain that there were two John Smiths on that particular ship, even if it wasn't the Mayflower.
It is interesting (as an aside) that one seaman is named John Parker. Parker is my Mother's maiden name.
