From Bradford of Plymouth

p.89: "Another wife-providing family was that of Alexander Carpenter who had come over first with the Ancient Brethren. Alice, who later married Bradford, had become Mrs. Edward Southworth, and Agnes had married Samuel Fuller the same year Bradford married Dorothy (May). Julia Ann (or Juliana) had married George Morton the year before. Priscilla was to marry William Wright in 1619, while Mary remained a spinster and ultimately became a member of Bradford's household in Plymouth."

p.195, the arrival of the Anne: "Alice Southworth, though leaving her two children behind, had not come without family. Her older sister Juliana had come with her husband George Morton and five children."

p.212: 1628 Bradford household consisted of... "Nathaniel Morton (1616-1685), son of George Morton and Juliana Carpenter..."

Juliana Carpenter was born 07 March 1583 in Wrington near Bath (Somersetshire) England. Her parents were Alexander and Priscilla Dillen-Carpenter. Since her father was a member of the Ancient Brethren, a group which were Dissenters and Separatists, Juliana was, perhaps, ten years old when her family moved to Holland for religious freedom. She married George Morton while in Leyden, Holland, and had five children: Nathaniel, Patience, John, Sarah and Ephraim.

Juliana was in Amsterdam (with her father, Alexander, and probably her brother and sisters from c.1600 to 1609; married George Morton in Leyden, Holland in 1612; Morton died in 1624 and Juliana married Menassah Kempton at Plymouth Colony in 1627.

Juliana arrived in Plymouth aboard the ANNE of London (140 tons); arriving July-August 1623 with about 60 persons aboard. She and husband George Morton are listed as "Saincts" as they were of the religious beliefs of the governors of Plymouth Colony. There were also another of the original Scrooby Congregation on board--the last ever to reach Plymouth--the prosperous merchant, George Morton, "a pious gracious servante of God," who had brought his wife, four children, a nephew and his wife's sister, Mrs. Alice Southworth, widow of Edward Southworth, the silk worker.

Three of Juliana's children are listed as having been born in 1616, one in 1618 and her last child, Ephraim, was born on the ANNE during her voyage to Plymouth.

Husband #1: George Morton (1585-1624), b. Harworth, Yorkshire, Eng., merchant, of well-to-do Roman Catholic family of Harworth, near Scrooby, England.

Married 23 July 1612 in Leyden, Holland; arrived Plymouth 1623 via ANNE along with wife, four children, a newborn, a nephew and sister-in-law, Mrs. Alice Southworth. Children: Nathaniel (1616-1685), Patience (1616-1691), John (1616-1673), Sarah (1618-1694 and Ephraim (1623-1693).
