Subject: Is George Martin Husband of Susannah North Son of Mayflower Passenger Christopher Martin?

Does anybody have any solid evidence to confirm or deny this? I can trace my lineage with reasonable certainty to George Martin (1618-1686) and his first wife Hannah Green (1624-1644) through their daughter Hannah (Martin) Worthen (1643-1730).

I've run across speculation that George Martin is the son of Mayflower passenger Christopher Martin but the Mayflower Society doesn't recognize any living descendants. Also, George Martin would've only been a toddler when the Mayflower sailed so it doesn't make sense to me why he would've been left behind in England.

Can anyone help?
