Priscilla Carpenter was the daughter of Alexander and Priscilla Dillen Carpenter. She was born 1597 in Wrington, near Bath, (Somersetshire) England. Her siblings included William of Cobham, Mary, Alice, Agnes, and Juliana.

Priscilla, along with her one brother and at least four sisters, moved with her father, Alexander, from England to Amsterdam, Holland, about 1600; then to Leyden, in about 1609, as Alexander was a dissenter and went to join his religous group known as the Ancient Brethren.

In 1619, in Leyden, Holland, Priscilla married William Wright. William Wright and Priscilla Carpenter arrived in Plymouth via the "Fortune" of London (55 tons); out of London early July 1621, arriving Plymouth, November 11th "with 35 persons to remaine & live in ye plantation." Among those listed as saints were William Wright ( -1633) Purchaser 1626; and Mrs. Priscilla Carpenter (1597-1689)-sister of Mrs. Juliana Carpenter-Morton. Richard Wright died about 1633. Priscilla Wright died at Duxbury, Plymouth Colony. 1 child, Lydia Cooper Morton.

A Richard Wright married Hester Cooke. Some sources feel that he was a son of William and Priscilla. This is improbable as Richard would have been about 10 years old when in 1619 When Priscilla married. He seems to have been born about 1608 (based on age at death). [1]

Priscilla "Dille" Carpenter Cooper

Birth: Jul. 6, 1597 Wrington North Somerset Unitary Authority Somerset, England Death: Dec. 29, 1689 Plymouth Plymouth County Massachusetts, USA

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.
