Alexander Carpenter never migrated to New England, but he had four daughters who did. We know very little about him, but he was obviously a puritan and moved to Holland by 1600. He gets a fair amount of research because of the number of descendants he has and the fact that one of his daughters was the second wife of William Bradford and another was the second wife of Samuel Fuller, both passengers on the Mayflower.
1. Alexander Carpenter born say 1560 and died after 1611 when he witnesses a marriage at Leiden. He married say 1581 a woman whose name is not known. She died, however, sometime immediately prior 19 August 1644 or 1646 when she is referred to as deceased in a letter. Alexander was at Bath, then Wrington, then Amsterdam where he witnesses a marriage in 1600 and finally in Leiden. He had eight children: Nathaniel, Julianna, Alice, Joan, Ann, Agnes, Mary, and Priscilla. Five of these moved to Leiden and four move on to New England: Juliana, Alice, Agnes (who died in Leiden), Mary, and Priscilla.
2. Juliana Carpenter was baptized 7 March 1584/5 at Bath, England and died at Plymouth, Massachusetts 19 February 1664/5. She married at Leiden 22 July 1612, George Morton, born about 1585 and died at Plymouth in June 1624, possible son of Anthony Morton. Juliana married secondly at Plymouth about 1627, Manasseh Kempton, born 26 February 1589/90 at Berwick-upon-Tweed, England and died at Plymouth 14 January 1662/3, son of George and Mary (Jersey) Kempton. Juliana and George Morton had five children: Nathaniel, Patience, John, Sarah, and Ephraim.
