Alice Carpenter Southworth Bradford in the Records of Plymouth
The widowed Alice Carpenter Southworth arrived on the Anne in 1623 and soon thereafter married William Bradford :
"August 14 . The fourth marriage is of Gov. Bradford to Mrs. Alice Southworth, widow."
Thomas Prince's New England Chronology as reprinted in :
Nathaniel Morton, New England's Memorial (Boston : Congregational Board
of Publication, 1855), p. 308.
"The fales of their grounds which came ouer in the shipe called the Anne according as their were cast. 1623... this goeth in w'th a corner by ye ponde. Alice Bradford."
Plymouth Colony Records, Vol. 12, p. 5-6.
The marriage of William Bradford and Alice Carpenter Southworth was noted in a letter written by Emmanuel Altham to his brother Sir Edward Altham in September, 1623 :
"Upon the occasion of the Governor's marriage, since I came, Massasoit was sent for to the wedding, where came with him his wife, the queen, although he hath five wives. With him came four other kings and about six score men with their bows and arrows - where, when they came to our town, we saluted them with the shooting off of many muskets and training our men. And so all the bows and arrows was brought into the Governor's house, and he brought the Governor three or four bucks and a turkey. And so we had very good pastime in seeing them dance, which is in such manner, with such a noise that you would wonder...
"And now to say somewhat of the great cheer we had at the Governor's marriage. We had about twelve pasty venisons, besides others, pieces of roasted venison and other such good cheer in such quantity that I could wish you some of our share. For here we have the best grapes that ever you say - and the biggest, and divers sorts of plums and nuts which our business will not suffer us to look for."
Sidney V. James, Jr., editor, Three Visitors to Early Plymouth
(Plymouth, Mass. : Plimoth Plantation, 1963), p. 29-30.
"June 17 . Born at Plymouth to Governor Bradford, his son William, who afterwards becomes deputy governor of the colony."
Thomas Prince's New England Chronology as reprinted in :
Nathaniel Morton, New England's Memorial (Boston : Congregational Board
of Publication, 1855), p. 310.
