An article about the Cushman family in N.E.H.G. Register (April, 1914) shows her three marriages in parish registers, extracts the wills of her first two husbands. Her son, Robert Cushman, is said to have probably been he who was "the agent of the Leyden Pilgrims in England." The article argues that if Thomas Tilden's last son, Freegift, was of his 3rd wife, then Elinor must have died before 1604. The article says her parents are undiscovered.

Hunt, in English Origins of New England Families, suggests that she may have been Alice Bourne, daughter of Thomas Bourne of Boughton Monchelsea, Kent, whose will was proved June 6, 1608 in the Consistory Court of Canterbury. That Alice Bourne had a brother named Freegift, who inherited lands in Tenterden. However, the will of Thomas Bourne refers only to his daughter Alice, without surname.
