1666  This Winslow family settled in Swansea, MA.

"At the breaking out of the Indian War, June 1675, his (Job Winslow's)
house at Swansey, which he inhabited eight or nine years, was burnt by
the enemy" (Savage's Gen. Dict. IV, pg 600)

Swansey:  A part of this town was originally comprehended in the ancient
limits of Reholboth.  It forms a part of the tract called by the Indians
Wannamoiset, situated in the town and in Barrington, RI.  Swansey was
incorporated in 1667, and at that time also included Somerset,
Barrington, and the greater part of Warren, RI.

Joseph Carpenter was one of the organizers of Swansey.

The Baptist Church, formed in Wales.

The Plymouth Court fined the members f5 and asked them to leave Rehoboth,
and they moved to Wannamoiset.  The first blood shed in King Phillips
War, was shed in Swansey.

1680  Job Winslow moved to Rochester, MA. and appears to be one of the
early settlers of this town as he was there about 1680.  (Barber's Mass.
Hist. Collections, pg. 524)

By 1686, Job Winslow had moved to Freetown, MA. as he was one of the
selectmen of that town.  He was also deputy to the General Court in 1686
and representative for the Plymouth Colony in 1686 and for Massachusetts
in 1692.

1690 Job Winslow was the Town Clerk and a grand-juryman.

Job Winslow was the Assessor in 1691, 1701-1706, and 1711.

1692 Job Winslow was representative to the General Court in Massachusetts
under the charter of William and Mary.  "He was a leading man in all town
matters, both civil and religious." (Winslow Memorial, Vol I)

Job Winslow was the moderator of the annual town meeting in 1708 and 1711
(was this Freetown, MA. ?)

Job Winslow was a Lieutenant in the early Indian wars...King Phillips War
? and was styled "Lieutenant" after that.

He was a shipwright by occupation.

In his will, dated 12 November 1717, he gave the lot now known at the
Winslow Burying Ground, situated two miles south of Assonet Village of
Freetown.

Notes for Kenelm WINSLOW of Rexhame Hill - IMMIGRANT:
KENELM WINSLOW

Kenelm Winslow was born April 29, 1599 in Droitwich, Worchestershire,
England. Kenelm was the fourth child and third son of Edward Winslow,
Esq. and Magdalene Ollyver.  Edward Winslow, Esq. had been married first
to Eleanor Pelham, and they had a child, Richard Winslow, who would be
our Kenelm's half-brother.

Kenelm Winslow's oldest brother, born in 1595, was Edward Winslow, the
Pilgrim, who came to the Colonies as a passenger on the 'Mayflower' in
1620.

Some sources say Kenelm Winslow arrived in Plymouth Colony in 1629 or
1630, about nine years after his older brother had made his journey.
Plymouth records say that Kenelm came with Josiah on the White Angel in
1631.  Marshfield History Book (1990) says that he arrived on the second
Mayflower, in 1630.  A 1957 article about Kenelm in "The Cabinet Makers
of America" reports that he was a passenger on the Mayflower, on her
second voyage to the Colonies.  This voyage of the Mayflower departed
from London in March 1629 and arrived in Salem on May 15 (or June 30),
with many Puritans for the Bay company and a few passengers for for
Plymouth.  Kenelm was listed a "coffin maker" in the ship's records, a
term synonymous with cabinetmaker.

Kenelm Winslow was admitted  a freeman in 1632.

At one time he was the surveyor of the town of Plymouth.

Kenelm married Ellen Newton Adams, widow of John Adams, in June of 1634,
in the Plymouth Colony.  Ellen Newton had come to the colonies on the
ship 'Anne" in 1623 and about 1625 had married John Adams.  This John
Adams had arrived at Plymouth on the ship 'Fortune' which arrived on Nov
9, 1620-1621, with Kenelm Winslow's brother, John Winslow.  John Adams
died in 1633, one year before Ellen's marriage to Kenelm Winslow.

Kenelm was, by trade, a furniture maker, or "joiner, and examples of his
work exist today.  Among other items, he made coffins for the Plymouth
Colony.  Joseph Beadle, Kenelm Winslow, Jonathan Winslow, Joseph Waterman
and Anthony Waterman were all prominent furniture makers. It is thought
that John Alden and Winslow both worked at cabinet making, either in
individual shops or, more likely, together.  In 1632 Alden had moved to
Duxbury and in 1641 Winslow had moved to Marshfield, thus both were near
to each other and close to Plymouth.  There have been attributed to these
two men, either working alone or together, some half dozen oaken court
cupboards and twice as many chests made during the years 1650-1670.  The
chests are oak and pine, framed, of the stiles and rail construction,
some with arched panels, some with multiangled panels, all with serrated
molding.

This coastal area attracted craftsmen who saw the advantage of the
coastal trade to market their products and who soon became involved in
the growing shipbuilding industry.  Furniture attributed to these
Marshfield artisians is to be found in a number of prominent  American
furniture collections today.

Kenelm and Ellen Winslow's first child, a son, was born in 1635, in
Plymouth Colony.  He was named for his father and  his greatgrandfather,
and called Kenelm Winslow.

A daughter, Ellen, named for her mother and maternal grandmother, was
born in 1637, in Marshfield, MA.

Nathaniel Winslow, third child and second son of Kenelm and Ellen
Winslow, was born in 1639, in Marshfield, MA.

A third son, Job Winslow, was born about 1641, in Plymouth Colony, and it
is through Job that our family traces their Winslow roots.
In 1635 Kenelm Winslow and six others were named to board to set rates on
goods to be sold and to set labor rates in the Colony.

William Green had been the first man to guide a small boat up the marsh
creek from Plymouth, with his fellow Plymouth Colony settlers Myles
Standish and Edward Winslow in about 1622.  Green was determined to
establish a fishing station there. As a result of this adventure, the
area including the south part of Marshfield and the river that flows
through it are named for this William Green.

About ten years later, in 1632, Edward Winslow was granted land in the
fertile area at the north end of Plymouth Bay at the place called Green's
Harbor, where no lots had been allotted in the former division.  Winslow
eventually took title to some twelve hundred acres of land granted to him
by the Plymouth Colony for his service to the colony.  His land lay along
the edge of what became known as the Careswell Marsh from the Duxbury
line to Green Harbor River.  He built a dwelling house at the marsh's
edge, cleared the land for extensive farming and brought others to settle
near him in this place at the edge of the bay.  The Winslow family seat
was established in 1636 near Green's Harbor, MA., and was named
Careswell, from an ancient castle of the name (Kerswell) in south of the
city of Worchester, in Staffordshire(?), Kempsey, England.  This was
where the earlier generations of the Winslow family had lived on it still
stands today.

Green's Harbor was the beginning of Marshfield, MA., a forming site for
the residents of Plymouth colony.  Marshfield as town name first appears
in records in March 1640-41.

Kenelm and Ellen Winslow  remained in Plymouth until they removed
permanently to Marshfield in 1641, and settled on his 100 acre Marshfield
grant.

In spite of his public service, records show that Kenelm was frequently
brought to court for various acts of misconduct, perhaps because of his
high spirit. He was fined for neglecting his post as surveyor of
highways.  The fine was 10 shillings, in 1640.

Kenelm and his brother Josiah Winslow were among the first
representatives to the Plymouth Colony Court.  They were both elected at
a town meeting on 9 Oct 1643.  Kenelm was also a selectman and served on
many committees  and juries.  He was one of the subscribers to a publicly
supported school established by the Town of Marshfield in 1645.

In 1645 Kenelm claimed to court that he could not get justice in his suit
against John Maynard.  They found his claims untrue.  Also in 1645 Roger
Chandler sued successfully Kenelm Winslow in court and Kenelm was ordered
to return Chandler's daughter's clothes.  She had been Kenelm's maid.

Again in 1645 he was ordered to prison for uttering opprobrious words
against the church in Marshfield saying they were all liars.

Kenelm Winslow followed his brother, Edward, to the Marshfield area in
1641 when he was granted, in 1636,100 acres of land in the spectacularly
beautiful area at the seaward end of Marshfield Neck Road.  ( Marshfield
Neck Road is Route 139 as it runs east from downtown Marshfield to
Winslow Street today).  There were five original settlers to this area
called Rexhame, those being Joseph Beadle, Kenelm Winslow, Josiah
Winslow, and Thomas Bourne.  Kenelm Winslow was the third settler in
Rexhame.

Kenelm built himself a house on a prime spot, ( what is now called 123
Winslow Street). Their new home nestled on the southwest shoulder of the
hill. This early house was later enlarged into the elegant home which
stands there today. It is magnificent, with a huge central chimney, six
fireplaces, traditional center doorway framed with two windows on each
side, and five windows across the second story.  A third-story garret
once housed the family spinning equipment, while the servant or slave
quarters were located in the rear part of the second floor.  The house
faces due south and commands a sweeping view of the Green Harbor River,
the ocean off Ocean Bluff and Brant Rock, and the South River valley to
the west.

Kenelm created a far-reaching farm here, clearing the fields for tillage
and pasturing his cattle on the fertile land.  He laid out an extensive
English park around his home. For over 200 years there were only the 5
farms on Rexhane Hill, those belonging to the  Beadle, Kenelm, Josiah,
Bourne, and Waterman families.

Kenelm and Ellen Adams Winslow had four children, all of whom grew up at
the house on Rexhame Hill.  Two sons moved away.  A daughter, Ellen,
married Samuel Baker of Marshfield.  Nathaniel, born in 1639, married
Faith Miller of Yarmouth and succeeded to the Kenelm Winslow homestead.

Kenelm Winslow was a member of  the Marshfield military company.

Kenelm later settled Yarmouth, MA. and several other towns, although I am
not certain that he ever left Marshfield to live in these other towns.
He was an original proprietor of Assonet (Freetown), MA. in 1659.
Assonet was purchased from the Indians 2 April 1659 and part  of Kenelm's
original land was still owned by Barnaby Winslow, Kenelm's 3-g.grandson,
in 1873.
The three initial settlements on the Cape recognized as townships in 1639
were Yarmouth, Sandwich, and Barnstable.

Kenelm Winslow died at the age of 73, on September 12, 1672, in Salem,
MA. while on a business visit. Acording to Rev. L. R. Paige, he died
there "apparently after a long sickness, for in his will dated five weeks
earlier, 8 Aug 1672, he describes himself a 'being very sick and drawing
nigh unto death.'  He may have been seeing Mrs. Elizabeth Corwin, the
daughter of his brother Edward or may have been trying to obtain medical
aid.  (see pg. 275, Young's Chronicles).  He was buried the following day
in Salem.  Why would he have not been brought back to Marshfield ?

Ellen Newton Adams Winslow died in 1681, and was buried on December 5,
1681, in Marshfield, MA.

The Kenelm Winslow family homestead passed to his son Nathaniel, his son
Kenelm (b. 1675), his son Kenelm, and his son Kenelm.  This last son
moved to Kennebec County, ME. where he established a long line of
Winslows still found today (1990) in Lincoln and Waldo Counties, ME.  The
Kenelm Winslow Marshfield (Rexhame) homestead passed through in-laws to
Captain Asa Waterman in 1783, and thence to Captain Curtis Goodsell in
1864.  Sarah Sherrill bought the Winslow place from Edward Ames in 1906
and it passed to Carrie Sherrill in 1920 and to her brother Edgar
Sherrill. In 1939 Episcopal Bishop Frederic Lawrence and his wife
Katherine, bought the house which had been held for four years by the
Rockland Trust Company.  At that time there were about 23 acres of land
in the estate.  Lawrence sold the place to Richard Osslinski who in turn
sold to Stephen Whoriskey in 1988.  The old Kenelm Winslow Estate is now
divided into small house lots with new homes.  Streets on the property
are appropriately named Sherrill Road and Eden Road.  The original house
has been considerably altered, although covenants drawn up by the
Marshfield Historical Commission and the planning board have attempted to
set standards of historic preservation.

Ruth COLE nee CHESTER Bef. Jun 1644.
        19.  Ruth COLE nee CHESTER, born 1627.

Notes for Daniel COLE:
William Collier of London, came to the colonies in 1633 on the ship "Mary
and James".  With him were the Cole brothers, John, Job, and Daniel.
James, of Plymouth, was probably also a brother.  The brothers were
apprentices, not servants.

Daniel Cole and his brothers, Job Cole and John Cole, were descendants of
Elisha Cole.

The name Cole (James, see below) first appears on Plymouth Records in
1633:

Daniel, third brother of Job and John Cole, of Putman Co. NY. granted 50
acres 6 April 1640.  Listed as able-bodied man Yarmouth 1643.  A Freeman
in 1645.  A Deputy in Eastham, MA. 1652, 1654, 1657, 1661-1665.

Daniel Cole married Ruth Chester.

Savage: Daniel Cole, Yarmouth, removed to Eastham 1643, was brother of
Job, rep 1652 and 6 more years.  Wife Ruth.

Descendant of Elisha Cole.
________________________________________________________________
Job Cole moved to Yarmouth in 1642, and to Eastham in 1648.  He was
made deputy 1654.  He was listed as a Freeman  in 1670,  but not listed
in 1675.  He probably died between these dates.  Job Cole was the first
town clerk of Eastham, MA. (Savage)

Job Cole married  Rebecca Collier, the daughter of Wm Collier. She
died at the  age of 88, on Dec 29, 1698.  There is some confusion among
the Colliers and their marriages.

Wm Collier of London came to America 1633, after being several years a
merchant adventurer.  He arrived on the MARY AND JAMES.  William Collier
was born in England before 1590 and died Plymouth about 1670.

Four daughters came with him:
Rebecca Collier m. Job Cole.  She died age 88 on 29 Dec 1698.
Sarah Collier m. 1) Love Brewster
2) Richard Parke
Elizabeth Collier m. Constant Southworth
Mary Collier m. Thomas Prence (Pence) 1 Apr 1635.  His first wife died
1634.  Prence was the Governor of Plymouth 1635.  Prence arrived on the
FORTUNE in 1621.  He was the son of Thomas Prence of Lechlade, Glouster
County, England.  He married Patience, d. of William Brewster 5 Aug
1624.  She died in 1635 and he moved to Duxbury, MA. where he married
Mary Collier.  In 1645 he moved to Eastham, MA. where Mary Collier Prence
died.  Contact NATBOND@aol.com for more information about the
Collier-Prence connection.

        21.  Margaret CARPENTER nee SUTTON, born Abt. 1635; died 1700.  She
was the daughter of 42. John SUTTON.

Notes for Joseph CARPENTER:
Joseph Carpenter was one of the organizers of Swansey, where Job Winslow
also settled.  The granddaughter, Elizabeth Carpenter, and son,  James
Winslow, later married.

Joseph Carpenter was one of the founders of the first Baptist church in
Massachesetts in 1663.  Rev. Mr. Miles formed the fourth Baptist church
in America, at Swansey, consisting of seven members.  Joseph was one of
the seven members who contributed to the building of the house in
consequence of which he was fined five pounds, prohibited from worship
for the space of one month.  The variance that appeared in their
religious belief did not disturb his business relations with the family
or settlers of Rehoboth, as he was one of the company of the North
purchase and drew one share.  He moved from Rehoboth to Swansea in 1661
or 1662, soon after his father died.

His will gives land to his three sons, Joseph, Benjamin, and John.  He
also gave unto them his rights in common of Rehoboth, likewise his rights
in Swansey.  His will also reads: now that my wife is with child, shall
have his part in the lands before described.  He gave his three sons his
tools, excepting an axe and a hoe.  These he wills to his wife.  He gave
his wearing apparel to Joseph and Benjamin.  To his five daughters he
gave 10 shillings apiece, to be paid them by his wife.  He gives his wife
his housing, house lot, and all his lands and goods, but if she married
again she was to give up one-half and the rest she was to enjoy while she
lived, and was to be at her disposal to "some or one of my children" as
was most dutiful to her.  His loving brothers William and Samuel were to
be the overseers. (page 46 Carpenter Memorial).

Marriage Notes for Edward WINSLOW and Magdalene OLIVER:
I have an anniversary history of St. Brides Church which I bought when
visiting London in 1986 with Mother.  In the book is a photo of Edward
Winslow, the family crest pendant, and a photo of their marriage
"license".

From Mayflower Heritage, by D. Kenelm Winslow, 1957.
"Under the 'free enterprise' of the late Tudors the descendants of
Richard Winslow flourished and increased greatly in numbers.  Kenelm
Winslow, son of Thomas of Kerswell, sold the farm and moved north into
Worcester City.  Kenelm's son Edward moved farther north, where he set up
in business extracting the famous Droitwich salt.  He rented his
salt-pans from one of the Winter family who was later involved in the
famous Gunpowder Plot of 1605, commemorated in England as Guy Fawkes Dy
every 5th of November.

This incursion into salt-manufacture has some significance,  Salt was in
those days an essential commodity in preserving meat and threating the
by-products of sheep.  While his kinsmen to the south of Worcester went
on raising sheep Edward Winslow made regular trips to London to sell what
they produced.  Among other things he took sheepskin for bookbinding and
parchment to the bookmen and scribes who carried on their business in the
churchyard of St. Paul's Cathedral in London.

Travel to London and back with a train of packhorses was a tedious
business.  A decent rest was essential before the return journey to
Worcester.  Edward Winslow, salt-maker of Droitwich, had time on his
hands in London, and, as an entry in the registers of the church of St
Bride in Fleet Street shows, he spent some of it in courting.  He married
Magdalan Ollyver in that church on November 4, 1594.  The sheep of
Worcertershire had again proved their ability as matchmakers.

Our five brothers, Edward, John, Kenelm, Gilbert and Josias were the
outcome of this 'traveller's wedding', and it was upon the eldest child,
Edward, that the sheep were now to exercise their curiously romatic
influence.

Notes for Richard Winslow:

that was once owned by his grandfather Kenelm.

Notes for Edward (The Pilgrim) Winslow:
EDWARD WINSLOW - THE PILGRIM

The mayflower was the nickname for the hawthorne tree blossom.

Edward Winslow established his family home, in 1636, near Green's Harbor,
now Marshfield, MA. named Careswell.

He  had lived in Leyden for about three years before his departure for
America.

Edward Winlsow brought over the first cattle to the colony: 1624

Edward's sister Magdalene (1604-1693) stayed in England and her grandson,
William Wake (1657-1737) became Archbishop of Canterbury in 1716

On their visit to Massasoit, Edward Winslow and Stephen Hopkins visited
the ancient town of Taunton, MA.  They were the first Englishmen to
traverse the soil, in July of 1621.  They found it depopulated and
desolate, the ravages of the great plague were everywhere.

From the Mayflower Quarterly, Feb 1995

October 18, 1995, will be the 400th anniversary of the birth of Edward
Winslow, who some twenty-five years later was to become a leading
personality amongst those who turned their backs on their religious
perscutors in Europe and set sail for the New World, America, and a new
life.

Edward Winslow was born in Droitwich, Worcestershire.  Two days later he
was baptized in the small Parish Church of St. Peter, Witton, Droitwich
where the family names has been honored by way of the Winslow Chapel.

It is of interest that Droitwich, which was very prominent in Roman
times, is now better known as Droitwich Spa.  As the salt industry
declined some years ago, the brine, which underlies the town and
surrounding area, no longer has the salt extracted.  However, there has
been a resurgance of popularity in brine bathing - formerly very popular
with wealthy Victorians - and Droitwich offers the only facility,
comparable to that of the Dead Sea.

However, the origins of Edward Winslow's family like approximately eight
miles to the south of Droitwich in the parish of Kempsey.  Edward's
father was raised in the 16th century family seat in the hamlet of
Kerswill Green.  A short distance from the Winslow family farmhouse, a
new project, as yet in its infancy, is being started.  This plan involves
the creation and development of a garden to commerate the birth of Edward
Winslow, the Pilgrim, together with the 375th Anniversary of the landing
of the pilgrim fathers in America on the 20 November 1620.

Like most populous areas of the United Kingdom, land in the green and
fertile County of Worcestershire is at a premium.  But, fortunately, one
acre was obtained close to the Winslow' family home.  This exciting
innovation embraces the transformation of an English meadow into a
commerative garden.  An Anglo-American project, it is envisaged that,
despite the vagaries of the English climate, the chosen shrubs and trees
will provide interest throughout the year.  The garden will afford view
over the truly English countryside of Worcestershire andd, as it matures,
will become a special place in the heart of England a place in which to
reflect on those who braved great danger and much uncertainty in their
pursuit of a new life, not realizing at the time how instrumental they
were in laying the foundations of a great nation.

(Nearby is Stratford-Upon-Avon and Warwick, with its magnificant castle,
the Worcester Cathedral, the idyllic Malvern Hills.  The Severn,
Britain's longest river, cuts its way through Worcestershire and passes a
nere 100 yards from the edge of Kempsey on its way to the Bristol Channel
and the Atlantic Ocean.)

Preceeding info from The Mayflower Quarterly, Feb 1995.

Fom the Mayflower Destiny, Marshall, 1975.

The Plymouth Colony was blessed with some men whose talents developed as
the years went by.  One such man was Edward Winslow. ... A printer by
trade, he was a member of the Leyden congregation (Saints), and only
twenty-five when the move was made to America.  He had faith enough to
put some money in the enterprise.  At Cape Cod he was a member of one of
the exploring parties; later he proved to be a good contact with the
Indians, who respected him.  ...When the Fortune arrived at the colony in
1622, Winslow sailed back to England, carrying reports on the progress of
the colony.  Nearing home, the ship was taken by a French privateer, but
Winslow was freed and got to England safely.  He returned to Plymouth on
the "Ann" shortly after Thanksgiving, 1623, but sailed again the
following year on the "Ann" to further negotiate with the Adventurers,
and get more cash for supplies.  On the return voyage on the ship
"Charity"  he took back to Plymouth three heifers and a bull, the first
livestock to reach the colony.  While on another visit to his homeland,
he published a report on the colony.  Winslow was one of those who
shouldered the Pilgrim debt; in return he obtained trading concessions in
Maine, Bussards Bay, and , later, on the Connecticut River.  He was able
to build himself a fine residence at Green Harbor with money obtained
through his trading ventures.  Not content to stay there, he made other
voyages, dying in the West Indies on 8 May 1655.  His was a useful and
wellspent life.  Fom the Mayflower Destiny, 1975.

From Kenelm Winslow of Worcestershire: His Ancestry, Siblings and
Descendants of Some Who Went West, Bidwell, Rose, and King. 1996.

Edward's childhood was spent on the family sheep farm at Droitwich,
Worcester, England.  The ancestral home in the village of Kenpsey, south
of the city of Worcester, stands today and is known as Kerswell.  Edward
used this name for his American Marshfield estate that over the years
became known as Careswell.

Edward was educated at Schola Vigorniensis, the King's School, in
Worcester Cathedral, in the city of Worcester.  In 1613 he was
apprenticed to printer John Beal of London and throught another printer
became acquainted with the dissident Separatist group connected with St.
Bride's Church on Fleet Street, London.

In 1617 he joined the exiled Separatists in Leyden, Holland, as a printer
and writer.  After printing some twenty books supporting the Separatist
cause between 1617 and 1619 its press at Leyden was seized by English
authorities.

In 1619 when the Separatists were trying to arrange an escape to America,
Edward's friends in good standing with King James I drew up the patent
for the Council of Affairs of New England in July 1620.  Edward helped
arrange passage of the group to America. (finish from page 43, Bidwell)

Edward was a Loyalist in contrast to some members of his family who
remained Patriots in America.

Notes for William (of Rehoboth) CARPENTER:
That the aforesaid William Carpenter, aged sixty-two in 1638, and
therefore born about 1576, was identical with William Carpenter of
Weymouth, Massachusetts, and that the aforesaid William CArpenter, Jun.
aged thirty-three in 1638, and therefore born about 1605, was identical
with Willam Carpenter, of Rehoboth, Massachusetts, is a genealogical fact
of general acceptance.  There is, however, a disagreement of opinion
regarding the elder of the Williams.  Mr. Savage, in his GDFSNE, states
that he died in 1659-1660 leaving children, John, William, Joseph,
Abjijah, Samuel, Hannah, Abigail, but the compiler of the Rehoboth Branch
of the Carpenter Family states, nearly twoscore years after the
publication of Mr. Savage's work, that William, the elder, born in 1656,
"returned in the same vessel in which he came over."  This author also,
after many years of search and inquiry, assigns the will of 1659-1660 to
the younger William Carpenter, born in 1605, and gives his children as
John, William, Joseph, Hannah, Abiah, Abigail, Samuel.  According to the
latter, and probably correct version, nothing further is known of the
elder William or dis descendants in the New World with the exception of
his son William and the latter's descendants.

William Carpenter  came with his father to Colonies in 1637.
William Carpenter of Rehoboth was later Freeman at Weymouth, MA., 1640,
and then founder of Rehoboth, MA.

William Carpenter was admitted a freeman of Weymouth, MA. 13 May 1640.
He was representative of Weymouth in 1641 and 1643, and from the town of
Rehoboth in 1645.  He was constable in 1641.  He was admitted as an
inhabitant of Rehoboth, MA. 28 March 1645.  In June of the same year he
and others were made freemen of Rehoboth. In 1645 William Carpenter with
others was chosen to look after the interests of the town; the same year
he was chosen by the town to represent them in the court at Plymouth.  In
1647 he was chosen as one of the directors of the town and agin in 1655.
In 1653 is the first time that his same was written as William Carpenter,
Sr.  His son, William, would be twenty-one at this date and was a
resident of the town.  About 1642 he was commissioned captain by the
General Court of Massachusetts.   Governor Bradford (who married this
William's cousin Alice Carpenter Southworth) manifested great friendship
for William Carpenter and favored him in all his measures in the Plymouth
Court.  And ever after that it appears from all their dealings and
transactions whether private or public, that they were close friends.
There is no doubt but that it was through the influence of Gov. Bradford
and his wife Alice that William of Weymouth was induced to come to New
England, and also that by William Carpenter of Providence, that the
Seekonk Plain was pointed out to his cousin, William of Weymouth, on
account of its adaptability as a tract of territory for a colony.

During the two years of residence in America of William of Providence,
(before William of Weymouth came over), he must have learned about the
soil and location.  Soom after William of Weymouth landed, his attention
was drawn to this location, probably by his cousin, and he commenced
immediately to go to work to secure it, and there is no doubt that
William of Weymouth had as much or more to do in settling a colony there
than any one of the proprietors.  He was in the colony only three years
when he was elected to the General Court of Plymouth and no doubt for the
purpose of obtaining permission to make a purchase of this territory.  In
1641 he was representative of Weymouth to the General Court, and through
his influence the permission was granted.  The Court conceded all that he
asked as appears   from an extract from the Proprietor's Record. (see Vol
I pg t.)  see copy in the Carpenter notebook.  References to Edward
Winslow, Roger Williams.

The firs settlement of the Colony of Rehoboth consisted of 58 members
from Weymouth, MA. who drew lots on the division of lands, June 1644.
William Carpenter's name in that division stands as #10.  By a previously
vote of the Proprietors in 1643 there was a mutual agreement that each
man's allotment might be taken up according to his person and estate and
also that each should bear his share of the public charges both for the
present and future.  In this list the name of William Carpenter stood #48
and the value of his estate was estimated at 254 pounds and 10
shillings.  The homes of this Colony were built in a semicircle around
Seekonk Common and open toward Seekonk River. This semicircle was called
"The Ring of the Town."

The meeting house was built in the old graveyard near where the tomb now
is and probably faced towards the south.  William Carpenter and Samuel
Carpenter were buried near the entrance to the church.  The residence of
William Carpenter appears by the description given in his will and by
tradition to have been located in the "Ring" directly east of the meeting
house.  The "Ring" at the present time (1896) is indicated by tradition
and by some 12 or more buttonwood trees that were set out at an early day
in front of the houses.  The stumps or roots of two of the trees are all
that is left to indicate where William and his son, Samuel, resided.

About 1642, William Carpenter was appointed Captain for one or more years
by the General Court of Massachusetts at Boston.  This was for protection
against Samuel Gorton and his followers who wanted to seize that land,
claiming purchase from the Indians.  The Providence colonists disputed
this claim knowing that they rightfully held the lands through a deed
from the Indians to Roger Williams and his 13 associates.  (See page 42,
Carpenter Memorial).

The burying ground in Rehoboth, now East Providence, where many of the
early members of the Carpenter family are now buried, was visited by the
complier of the Carpenter Memorial (Amos B. Carpenter) in 1844 and 1845.
He spent several days in the yard, and found it in a very delapidated
condition.  Many of the stones were fallen, and lay on the ground, grown
over by bushes, grass and weeds and the accumulation of soil, which
completely concealed them from view.  Others had tipped over, and were
sunken into the ground so that their inscriptions could not be read.  As
many were righted as could well be done in the short time the complier
was there.  The stones on which the slab rested on which the Carpenter
Coat of Arms was engraved, had sunken into the ground so that the slab
was very far from being level.  Some portions of it resting nearly, if
not quite on the ground, devoid of any regular form.  The stone of
Daniel's wife Susannah was in the same condition.  When he visited next,
in 1893, he found the slab on Daniel Carpenter's grave had been raised to
its proper height and place but his wife Susannah's remained nearly the
same as seen in 1844.  He also found the stones that marked our worthy
father William Carpenter and his wife Miriam's grave, taken out of the
swamp of blackberry bushes and vines, and now they lie at the foot of
Daniel and Susannah's graves, side by side, with the letter-side up.  The
letters were very distinct, as if recently cut.  On the last visit, some
of the family lots showed that they had received special care by the
descendants and were in elegant condition, corresponding with the present
style of family lots.  It is at this burial ground that William
Carpenter, and wife Abigail are supposed to be buried, but the complier
was unable to find a stone that marked their graves.  William resided
here only about 13 years before he died, and must have been one of the
first buried in this yard.  It is a beautiful piece of ground directly in
front of the Newman Meeting house, only a few rods from it.  The Chapel
is still call the "Newman Meeting House".  Only two of the five brothers
were buried in this yard, John died at Jamacia, L. I., Joseph at
Barrington or Swansea, MA. and Abiah at Pawtuxet, RI.  It was found
recorded on the town book that the town of Rehoboth voted to fence this
burying ground with stone in 1680, and this old stone fence still stands
in very good contition (1893).

Notes for John Carpenter:
John Carpenter came from England with his father and when young went to
Connecticut.  He went before 1646, when he was about 17 years old.  It
appears that he drifted about in Connecticut several years working at the
trade of carpenter.  He had some difficulty with one Gibbons and was
assisted by Thomas Osborn.  In the year 1660 John bought land in
Henpstead, Long Island and in the deed is called John Carpenter of
Huntington, CT.  He is mentioned in his father's will of April 21, 1658,
in which he gives him one mare, being the old white mare, etc. and the
the grandson, twenty shillings to buy him a calf.

        65.  Katherine WINSLOW nee (MORGAN) or BUCKE, born Abt. 1532 in of
Droitwich, Worchestershire, England24; died 04 Apr 1607.  She was the
daughter of 130. Kenelm Bucks and 131. Ellen Bucke nee Neville.

Notes for Kenelm WINSLOW:
Registry of Probate of Worchester: Kenelme Winslowe of the parish of St
Andrew, Worcester. April 14, 1607, proved 11-9-1607 appoints wife Katherine
executrix.

He was a yeoman.

Droitwich is 8 miles from Worcester.

Kenelm's purchase in 1559 of Sir Richard Newport's estate, called Newport
Place, Kempsey, Worchestershire, added to an older and considerable estate
called "Clerkenleap".  "Clekenleap" was sold by his grandson, Richard
Winslow in 1650.

D. Kenelm Winslow reports: " Kenelm Winslow, son of Thomas of Kerswell, sold
the farm and moved north into Worcester City. (pg 23.)

There were other children besides Edward, according to Kenelm's will,
written 14 April 1607.  The will was proven November 9, 1607 and is still to
be seen in Worchester.

REF Winslow: (from the website of Paul Bailey McBride 1997)
John G. Hunt conjectured in the 1960's that Kenelm's wife was Elizabeth
Foliot.  The basis for the John G. Hunt theories are two letters where
Herbert Pelham and Sir Arthur Hesilrige both write to JOhn Winthrop and
refer to Edward Winslow as "my loving cousin".  It seems that their wives
and Winthrop were all cousins.  How ?  Their ancestry in known and the only
hole in Winslow's ancestry is his paternal grandmother, the wife of Kenelm
of Kempsey.  The problem with the above theory (among others) is that the
cousinship is 5th cousins and good for only Hesilrige.  Hunt himself ruled
this out in 1985, but he conjectured that Kenelm may have married secondly
Katherine Foliot, later, as sister of Elizabeth.  He did prove extensive
financial dealings between the Folliots and Winslows, but they lived only 10
miles apart and this was not surprising.

        80.  William CARPENTER, born 1576 in Marden, Wiltshire, England.;

        81.  Mary CARPENTER nee BATT.

Notes for William CARPENTER:
Son William, (#1329), and father William, (#1327) came to the colonies
together, and the father returned on the same ship. He left his son
William.
This William is 9th generation from John(#1326) b. 1303.

From the Carpenter Memorial:

William Carpenter, born in 1576, was a carpenter by trade and lived in
the City of London.  He rented certain tenements and gardens in
Houndsditch in 1625 to him devised for 41 years with a covenant to build
within five years, which tenements and gardens were heretofore conveyed
to the city's use for the support of the Carpenter Free School by John
Carpenter, Town Clerk of London.

This William, the progenitor of the Rehoboth family, came over in the
ship "Bevis" with his son William, son's wife Abigail and their
children.  He was registered at Southampton, at the time of emigration as
a carpenter by trade and as coming from Wherwell, but it is evident that
he was a resident of London.  It appears that all the family were
Dissenters and consequently obliged to leave the City of London for a
more quiet place.  Alexander (this William's brother) went to Leyden and
this William, the son of William, went to Wherwell.  There is no evidence
that the father was there, only as he went to join his son at the time of
emigration.

The earliest record of unquestioned authenticity relating to his family
is as follows:   Southampton. ---The list of the names of Passengs
Intended to shipe themselves, In the Beuis of Hampton of CL. Tounes,
Robert Batten Mr for Newengland, And thus by vertue of the Lord
Treasurers warrant of the second of May wch was after the restraynt and
they some Dayes gone to sea Before the Kinges Nates Proclamacon Came unto
South'ton.

Endorsed: "Southton, 1638.  The Cert. and list of the Passengrs names

The statement was made, in 1860, that Horwell, above, probably should be
Horil, and that "there is a Horil in Hampshire, near Linington."

That the aforesaid William Carpenter, aged sixty-two in 1638, and
therefore born about 1576, was identical with William Carpenter of
Weymouth, Massachusetts, and that the aforesaid William CArpenter, Jun.
aged thirty-three in 1638, and therefore born about 1605, was identical
with Willam Carpenter, of Rehoboth, Massachusetts, is a genealogical fact
of general acceptance.  There is, however, a disagreement of opinion
regarding the elder of the Williams.  Mr. Savage, in his GDFSNE, states
that he died in 1659-1660 leaving children, John, William, Joseph,
Abjijah, Samuel, Hannah, Abigail, but the compiler of the Rehoboth Branch
of the Carpenter Family states, nearly twoscore years after the
publication of Mr. Savage's work, that William, the elder, born in 1656,
"returned in the same vessel in which he came over."  This author also,
after many years of search and inquiry, assigns the will of 1659-1660 to
the younger William Carpenter, born in 1605, and gives his children as
John, William, Joseph, Hannah, Abiah, Abigail, Samuel.  According to the
latter, and probably correct version, nothing further is known of the
elder William or dis descendants in the New World with the exception of
his son William and the latter's descendants.

Notes for Alexander Carpenter:
>From the Carpenter Memorial by Amos Carpenter.  1893
Alexander Carpenter was born about 1560.  He was a Dissenter and on
account of religious persecution removed with his family to Leyden.  It
was probably this Alexander who stopped at Yarmouth on his return to
England.  After quiet was restored, he settled in Sommersetshire where
his wife died.  He had several children, whose names will be found in the
American Ancestry of the Carpenter Memorial, as the daughters came to
America.  His youngest child and only son was probably William of Cobham,
known as the one to whom the Greyhound Arms were granted in 1663.

England.; died Aft. 1638 in England; married Mary CARPENTER nee BATT.
                iv.     Richard Carpenter, born Aft. 1576.

Notes for Richard Carpenter:
Richard Carpenter the fourth son of William was born about 15--; it is
supposed that he went to Amesbury, where he is known to have had
property, in order to escape the religious prosecution.  He was the
father of William Carpenter who came to America in 1636, and settled in
Providence with Roger Williams and is known as the progenitor of the
Providence branch of the family.  The record and genealogy of this family
is in the hands of Daniel H. Carpenter, of Maplewood, NJ. who is a direct
descendant of Joseph Carpenter who settled at Mosquito Cove, L. I. and
was the son of William of Providence, R. I.

        5120.  John (Town Clerk) Carpenter, born Aft. 1355.  He was the son

Notes for John (Town Clerk) Carpenter:
This John Carpenter was the younger brother of John Carpenter, Sr. and
the son of Richard Carpenter.  it was not unusual for two sons to be
named the same, and this John, who became famous as Town Clerk of London,
and "whose benevolent bequest formed the basis on which the CITY  OF
LONDON    SCHOOL  was founded," was distinguished by being described as
John Carpenter, Jr. or the younger.  "Stow in more than one place calls
him Jenkin Carpenter, which the readers of Chaucer will know is the
diminutive of John as Simkin is of Simon".  In the will of John
Carpenter, Jr. the elder John was remembered, as was the brother Robert,
by the gift of "one of those two silver-gilt cups with a lid, which
Thomas Knolle gave me, weighing 25 ozs."  John Sr. and Robert were
appointed executors of the will.

Generation No. 14

        10240.  Richard CARPENTER, born Abt. 1335 in London, England; died
1395 in London, England.  He was the son of 20480. John Carpenter.  He
married 10241. Christina CARPENTER nee ???.
        10241.  Christina CARPENTER nee ???, born Abt. 1340.

Notes for Richard CARPENTER:
Both Richard and Christina Carpenter were buried in the church of St.
Martin Outwitch, Bishopsgate Street, and so also were some other members
of the family.

There seems reason to believe that Richard was a citizen of London,
engaged like most citizens of his time, in some trade.  The rolls of
Parliment of the 5th Richard II, 1381, contain a pardon, in which several
persons of the name of Carpenter are mentioned as being excepted from its
benefits, and among them one who is described at Richard Carpenter of
Billeter Lane, London.  The City records also contain an entry of a
recognizance entered into in 1410, before the mayor and aldermen by two
citizens, respecting the guardianship of an orphan, one of the parties to
which is John Norman, goldsmith, and the other, Richard Carpenter,
chaundeler."  These two entries may possibly refer to one and the same
person, and that person be Richard, the father of John Carpenter, Town
Clerk of London.  Richard inherited at least, his portion of his father's
estate.  He was chaundeler and probably a goldsmith, both trades
indicating wealth.  He was, as appears in history, a prominent man in
social as well as in business matters.  That he was wealthy appears from
the fact that his sons received a liberal education, provision being then
made by the Government for education only in the common branches, and
that to a limited extent.
