  • Notes 
    • Alexander was a son of William & Abigail Carpenter.

      He married Priscilla Dillen in 1581.

      They had at least 5 daughters and perhaps 3 more children, according to the "Rehoboth Branch of the Carpenter Family" by Amos Carpenter in 1898: Julianna; Alice; Bridget; Agnes; Priscilla; Mary; William; and Joan.

      Alexander Carpenter from Wrington was on 16 December 1600 [NS] witness at the Amsterdam marriage of "Antoine Fetcher" and "Jenneken Richeman" [J. de Hoop Scheffer, History of the Free Churchmen .... He was at Leiden by 1611. In a letter of 19 August 1644 or 1646 to Mary Carpenter of Wrington, sister of his wife Alice (Carpenter) (Southworth) Bradford, William Bradford noted that the mother of the Carpenter sisters had recently died, and invited Mary to join them in Plymouth, which she soon did.

      Alexander Carpenter was a member of the "Ancient Brethren".
