Alice Carpenter1,2

F, b. circa 1590, d. 26 March 1671
     Alice was born circa 1590 at Wrington, county Somerset, England.3 She was the daughter of Alexander Carpenter and Priscilla or Druscilla NN----. She married Edward Southworth on 28 May 1613 at Leyden, Holland.1 Alice was some six or seven years younger than her sister Juliana. She married Edward Southworth at Leiden in 1613. They were not among the group of Pilgrims who made the journey to the New World in 1620, and sometime between 1620 and 1623 Edward died, survived by Alice and two young boys, Constant and Thomas. Leaving the boys behind - probably in care of an uncle. Alice joined her sister Juliana and brother-in-law George Morton on the voyage to the New World in 1623. The "Anne" arrived at Plymouth in July, and Alice married Governor William Bradford the following month. This was a second mariage for both, as Bradford's first wife, Dorothy May, had drowned in 1620 while the Mayflower lay at anchor at Cape Cod. The short time between Alice's arrival and the marriage to Bradford suggests that they had been well-acquainted in Holland. In fact, a Southworth biographer claims that there even had been a romantic relationship prior to Alice's marriage to Edward Soouthworth.

Although William and Alice had three children of their own, born between 1624 and 1630, Alice arranged for her two sons to join them. The boys arrived about 1628.

In 1637 her son Constant married Elizabeth Collier, daughter of William Collier, one of the merchant backers of the "Mayflower" venture. Collier had brought his family over in 1633, and he served as Assistant Governor several times. Elizabeth's sister Sarah, married Love Brewster, son of the Elder. Constant Southworth became prominent in his own right, serving as Colony treasurer, 1659-79, and Assistant Governor 1670-78. He also operated a grist mill located near his home and the Alden farm in Duxbury. Constant and Elizabeth had eight children, and three of them married descendants of John and Priscill Alden.

Alice's other son, Thomas, married Elizabeth Reyner, daughter of Rev. John Reyner. They, in turn, had a daughter, Elizabeth, who married Joseph Howland, son of "Mayflower" passengers John and Elizabeth (Tilley) Howland. Like his brother, Thomas held several important Colony positions, including that of Assistant Governor, 1652-53 and 1657-69.4 She was listed on a passenger list in 1623 at sailing on the "Anne".5 She married William Bradford on 14 August 1623 at Plymouth, Plymouth, Massachusetts. Alice died on 26 March 1671 at Plymouth, Plymouth, Massachusetts.3

Thomas Dunham

M, b. circa 1556
     
      Thomas Dunham,
was incline to side with the Reformers in his faith. In 1605, the feeling against the Puritans and Catholics was high and Thomas felt it to such an extent that he took his family from Scrooby to London, where Robert was born in 1605. In 1635 Robert's name is on the list of the "George Jo Scvcrne" which transported a number of individuals to Virginia, because of the matters touching their conformity in religion. There is no record of Robert after the boat arrived in Virginia, so it is surmised he died soon after leaving. He was a lad of 5, when his brother John left London for Leyden, following King James edict that "all over the age of 16 must attend the Established Church".
     
     
      The Dunhams and collateral branches, especially the Zouches, were ardent supporters of the Established Church and bitter opponents of the Puritans, so that members of the Dunham family who sided with the Puritans were persecuted by members of their own family. Thomas had sympathy for the dissenters, as had his mother; in the children of Thomas, we find both John and Robert decided dissenters from the established faith and both suffered persecutions of the times.
     
     
      Thomas's
son John, born 1588, and Edmund Zouche, Councillor of King James, and violent persecutor of the Dissenters, were both practically the same age and both of the same degree of descent from Lord John Zouche. After King James' edict in 1608, commanding attendance at church, John, escaped to Holland. There he became a man of toil and learned the trade of a weaver. After his second marriage, he joined the colony in Plymouth, Massachusetts.
     
     
      The Separatist District in England was along the Trent, and included Dunham-on-Trent as well as Kirklington, family homes of the Dunhams
     
     
      Other early history of the Dunham may be obtained from "History of Dunham-on-Trent" by Rev. Howard Chadwick.
