John Dunham1

M, b. circa 1589, d. 2 March 1668
     John Dunham speaks English.
     
      John Dunham of Scrooby Notts, weaver, went first to Leyden, Holland, circa 1618. John Dunham and three children (John, Humility, and Thomas) were listed as living in the Zevenhuysen section of Leiden on 15 October 1622 [NS][Dexter612], in a survey which was conveniently taken between the dates of John Dunham's betrothal and marriage to his second wife. Is supposed to have immigrated to Plymouth ca. 1630 with wife and several children. He was considered a first son, and received land in the first land division. In 1632 he was assigned land for pasturing his cattle, and was taxed for military service. In 1633 John, who had been a protege of Elder Brewster, his Scrooby neighbor, was made deacon of the Plymouth church, showing in what high esteem he was held. This was the second entry in the town records.
     
     
      In 1633 the town board lists his land on the southern boundary, and same year he was made a freeman. In 1638 he advertised cattle; he was a dealer. Was made deputy to the General Court 1638-64, served as a member of the Plymouth Military Co. 1643, on many important town committees, was one of those who revised the Colony's laws in 1650, and among the first purchasers of Dartmouth. In 1662 land was granted his son John as a first born of the early comers. His house was southwest of Plymouth, and adjacent swamp had an outlet called to this day Dunham Brook. He died at 81, a revered old man, his will witnessed by John Cotton, Thomas Cushman, and Thomas Southworth. (which may be seen in Mayflower Desc.) "Hee was an approued seruant of God, and a vsefull man in his place, being a deacon of the church of Christ att Plymouth." A granddaughter of John and Abigail married the grandson of John and Priscilla Alden, whose romance has fascinated Americans for over 300 years. His wife was living at his death.

John Faunce1

M, b. circa 1608, d. 29 November 1653
      THE FAUNCE FAMILY
     by: James Freer Faunce, of Akron, Ohio
     
     
      Burke's "Landed Gentry", states that the County of Kent was the earliest home of the Faunce family in England. In the time of King Edward VI (circa 1550) the Faunces owned estates in the parishes of Rochester, Cliffe, High Halston and Aylsford, in Kent.
     
     
      Bonham Faunce of Cliffe (grandson of William Faunce of Greenwich), died in 1552 having married twice and left in addition to a daughter, a son Thomas Faunce.
     
     
      Thomas, the son, also married twice, and died in Cliffe in 1609, aged 84 years. He had three sons (one named Thomas by wife Alice) and three daughters. The last named Thomas Faunce entered the Navy while young and was present at the attack on the Spanish Armada in 1588. He married Martha Baynard, daughter of John Baynard of Shorne and lived at St. Margaret's, Rochester, where he was mayor in 1609.
     
     
      The Children of Thomas and Martha included two sons, Robert and Thomas, of who it is said "Thomas joined the Pilgrim Fathers in America, 1640 and died at New Plymouth, age 99..." This is definitely an error, since Thomas, the Elder of Plymouth was the son of John Faunce who settled in Plymouth in 1623. Robert Faunce of Cliffe and St. Margaret's, Rochester, the elder of the two sons of Thomas and Martha (Baynard) Faunce, had three sons, Thomas, Robert, and George. Of these, the middle son, Sir Robert of Maidstone and Ildon, had a son who was knighted in 1660. After Sir Robert's first wife died he married at St. Leonard, East Cheop, London, 29 September. 1662, Elizabeth Head, daughter of Sir Richard Head, Baronet. At the time Robert was twenty-eight years old and Elizabeth nineteen. Thomas, the eldest son, of High Halston and St. Margaret;s, Rochester, married Martha Young. Thomas and Martha had among other children born at St. Margaret;s, Rochester, a son Thomas, who married Ann Daniele, daughter and heir of Captain. John Daniele of St. Mary's Hall, co. Kent.
     
     
      Other records state "John Faunce of Maloon, Snyle, married Cecelyne Eve in May, 1540 and Thomas Faunce married Margette, both from Snyle, on January 18, 1541.
     
     
      In an unsigned letter it is said that Oliver Cromwell was nursed by Alice Faunce and she was so kind and attentive to him that he presented her with a large portrait of himself. Charles II married a Faunce. The Faunce estate was in Rochester, England and covered 600 acres. The house was built in 1020.
     
     
      There is much more but none proves our line of descent. Among the other early, though fragmentary, records of the name in England are those of John Faunce of Buer's Gifford, co. Essex, yeoman, who married at St. Catherine, Creechurch, London, in 1579, Grace Warde of Horndon-on-the-Hill, co. Essex; Jonah Faunce of North Fambridge, co. Essex yeoman, who married at St. Peter, Paul's Wharf, London, in 1623, the widow Dorothy Ithell of Bradwell-Juxta-Mare, co. Essex. These merely list Faunces that lived at the same time as our John Faunce and may serve as a guidepost for someone else to trace and document this part of the family history.
     
      The General Armory of England, Scotland, Ireland, and Wales, by Sir B. Gurke, Vol. 1, pg 343, gives the Faunce family as Sharsted, co, Kent, England, and their coat of arms is described as:
     
     
      Arms-Argent. Three lions rampant sable, armed and langued gules, ducally gorged (collared).
     
     
      Crest- A demi-lion rampant sable, langued and gorged as in the arms between two wings argent.
     
     
      Motto-"No Tentes Aut Perfice"-translated mens "Either do not attempt; or accomplish" or "don't attempt anything unless you finish it".
     
John was born circa 1608 at Purleigh, county Essex, England.2 He was listed on a passenger list in 1623 at sailing on the "Anne".3 He married Patience Morton circa 1633 at Plymouth, Plymouth, Massachusetts.4,5 John died on 29 November 1653 at Plymouth, Plymouth, Massachusetts.

Juliana Carpenter1

F, b. before 17 March 1584/1585 (ch, d. 19 February 1665/66
     Juliana was born before 17 March 1584/1585 (ch at Wrington [near Bath], England. She was christened on 17 March 1584/85 at Wrington [near Bath], England.2,3 She was the daughter of Alexander Carpenter and Priscilla or Druscilla NN----.

Juliana was thirty-eight years old when they landed in Plymouth.

Juliana, the oldest daughter, married George Morton in 1612. George formerly a merchant, had been one of he prominent Scooby Separatists and continued to be an influential figure while in Holland. Although not among the "Mayflower" contingent. he and Juliana and their children sailed for Plymouth on the "Anne" in 1623. Morton undoubtedly would have taken a leading role in the Colony, but the opporutnity escaped him when he died the following year. Their 7 year old son, Nathaniel, was taken into the home of Governor Bradford. In 1647 Nathaniel became Clerk of the Plymouth General Court, a position he held until his death nearly 40 years later. After George Morton died, Juliana remarried. Her second husband, Manasseh Kempton, had come over on the "Anne" at the same time as the Mortons. He was not a particularly active individual in Colony affairs, but he did serve on at least two committes appointed by the Governor. There were no known children by this second marriage.6
She was listed on a passenger list on 10 July 1623 at sailing on the "Anne".7 She married Manasseh Kempton by 1627.8 Juliana died on 19 February 1665/66 at Plymouth, Plymouth, Massachusetts.2,9
