She was baptized May 27,1604 at St.Michael's and All Angels Church, then in the Berkshire Co. section of Shalbourne, England, the daughter of John Briant and Alice ____ Briant.
Some older sources give wife Abigail's maiden name as Bennett or Searles. The first represents unwarranted linkage to a Bennett family of Sway, Co.Hampshire, and the second reflects apparent confusion with the maiden name of William Carpenter Jr's second wife, Miriam Sale(s).
She married William Carpenter at St.Michael's and All Angels Church, then in the Berkshire Co. section of Shalbourne, England on Apr 28,1625. The family resided in the Wiltshire Co. section of Shalbourne.
She and her husband arrived in New England on the "Bevis" in 1638, settling first at Weymouth,MA and then, by 1645, Rehoboth,MA. Abigail was buried in the Newman Cemetery in Old Rehoboth (now East Providence,RI) on Feb 22, 1686/7.
