William Carpenter
Birth: 1605 Wiltshire, England
Death: 7 Feb 1658 (aged 52œ53)
Burial: Newman Cemetery, East Providence, Providence County, Rhode Island, USA
Memorial #: 13522767
Bio: He was born about 1605, probably near the confluence of Wiltshire, Hampshire, and Berkshire Counties. No exact date of his birth in primary sources has been found, though some sources indicate May 16,1605, which may be a fabrication.

He was the son of William Carpenter of the Wiltshire Co. portion of Shalbourne parish. His mother may have been the Alice Carpenter buried at Shalbourne on Jan 25,1637/8. William Carpenter Sr, aged 62, was listed as a passenger on the "Bevis" in 1638, but he may have died on the voyage or shortly afterward, or returned to England shortly afterward.

He married Abigail Briant at St.Michael's and All Angels Church, then in the Berkshire Co. section of Shalbourne, England on Apr 28,1625.

Both William and Abigail, along with four minor children and his father William, arrived in 1638 on the "Bevis". They were at Weymouth by 1640, and Rehoboth by 1645. This William Carpenter should not be confused with contemporary William Carpenter of Providence,RI, nor are they related in any known way.

Children: John Carpenter, Abigail Carpenter Titus Palmer, William Carpenter, Joseph Carpenter, Samuel Carpenter, Samuel Carpenter, Hannah Carpenter Carpenter, and Abiah Carpenter.
