  • Notes 
    • Zubrinsky: This William Carpenter "died at Rehoboth, Plymouth Colony (that part now Rumford, East Providence, Rhode Island)." His and his wife's burial place is also called Newman Cemetery.

      Note that before 1895, the parish of Shalbourne straddled the boundary between Wiltshire and Berkshire, and the Hampshire border was and still is only four miles away.

      Emigrated with his father, wife, and offspring on the Bevis, which departed Southampton before 2 May 1638.

      He was a carpenter and a planter. He was literate; his will mentions many books, including works in Latin and Greek. There exists no record of him undergoing higher education; Zubrinsky (citation details below) speculates that he may have been tutored by a local clergyman.

      At various times, deputy to the general court of both the Massachusetts Bay Colony and the Plymouth Colony. Many other offices listed by Zubrinsky, citation details below.
