  • Notes 
    • "Alexander Carpenter, who is the ancestor of so many Americans, through the marriages of his daughters, apparently never came to America. He was in Leyden with the Pilgrims about 1611, and had gone there from Wrington, Somerset, England. Apparently he returned to Wrington later, as his daughter Mary was living there in 1664. William Bradford, who had married her sister, Alice, the widow of Edward Southworth, wrote to her, in that year, inviting her, since her mother was deceased and she was alone, to come to America and make her home with them, and addressed her at Wrington. She accepted the home thus offered her and outlived her sister by many years." [Mary Lovering Holman, The Scott Genealogy]
