Priscilla was a daughter of Alexander Carpenter & Priscilla Dillen.
She was a sister to Alice Carpenter, wife of Edward Southworth & Governor William Bradford. She was also a sister to Juliana Carpenter, wife of George Morton & Manessah Kempton, and Agnes Carpenter, wife of Dr. Samuel Fuller.
She was married 1st to William Wright who was on the "Fortune" in 1621 and died in Duxbury, Massachusetts in 1633. They were probably married in Leyden, Holland about 1619. [pages 444 & 445, Saints and Strangers by George F. Willison - 1945]
She married 2nd on 27 Nov 1634 at Duxbury, Plymouth County, Massachusetts to Dea. John Cooper, a member of Rev. John Lathrop's separatists from Southwark, England [across the Thames River from London]. Dea. John Cooper died in Barnstable, Massachusetts in 1683.
According to Plymouth Historian, William T. Davis, Priscilla was the mother or grandmother of Richard Cooper [1639-1724]. It seems quite clear by his will that Dea. John Cooper had no children. Davis also believed that Priscilla Carpenter and William Wright were the parents of Richard Wright, who married Hester Cooke. It seems most likely that Richard Cooper was a son of Humilitie Cooper and Richard Wright, who were probably living in the same household... like siblings. Humilitie was "sent for" back to England and died there before 1651. She had an adult baptism at Holy Trinity of the Minories in London in 1639, right about the time that Richard Cooper was born.
