John Bent came to New England on the "Confidence" from South Hampton, England, on April 24, 1638, and became one of the early settlers of Sudbury. His mother Agnes (Annis) Gosling Blanchard departed for New England in 1639 but died during the passage. On the ship's manifest, he was declared a husbandman, age 35 (incorrect), with wife Martha; and children Robert, William, Peter, John, and Ann, their children all under 12. Vital statistics on them can be found in the Registers of the Parish of Wayhill, Penton-Grove, Southampton, England.
