The following much earlier information is quoted from: The English Ancestry and Homes of the Pilgrim Fathers--Who Came to Plymouth on the "Mayflower in 1620, the "Fortune" in 1621, and the "Anne" and the "Little James" in 1623, written and compiled by Charles Edward Banks, Member of the Massachusetts Historical Society, originally published in New York, 1929, this edition printed in Baltimore, 1965, by Geological Publishing Company, p. 161.
She was the widow of Edward Southworth, daughter of Alexander Carpenter and sister of Julian Carpenter, the wife of George Morton (q.v.). She was betrothed to Edward Southworth, say-weaver of Leyden, 7 May, 1613, by whom she had two sons, Constant, born 1615, and Thomas, 1617, who accompanied her on the voyage. She married Governor Bradford, about a month after arrival, on 14 August, 1623. The Southworths and Gov. Bradford had lived in Heneage House, Duke's Place, London, for about a year prior to the sailing of the Mayflower. It is probable that the Southworth family came from the vicinity of Fenton, co. Notts, near Sturton-le-Steeple, the home of Rev. John Robinson (P.R.O. Exchequer, Dep. 43-44, Elizabeth Michaelmas No. 3).
Southworth families lived in various parishes in that section of England before the Pilgrim exodus.
