Notes for William Carpenter
He lived in London, leasing certain tenements and gardens in Houndsditch in 1625 for 41 years. These had previously been used for support of the Carpenter Free School by John Carpenter, Town Clerk of London. He came to Massachusetts with his son and returned to England on the same ship, the "Bevis."

Returned to England with ship after accompanying son and family to Massachusetts. It is speculated that the emigration was for politico-religious reasons. He was registered as being from Wherwell on the ship's papers, filed from Southampton.
