General History

Richard Carpenter & Agnes Chatfield were one of my 12th generation ancestors.

Key Dates:

The information held is very incomplete and possibly erroneous.

Richard Carpenter was born in about 1580 possibly in the Lingfield area of Surrey. He married Ano Chatfield (possibly Agnes) on 22nd September 1605 in Lingfield, Surrey. If it was Agnes then she possibly remarried Walter Everist on 31st October 1614 in Cowden, Kent implying Richard had died between 1612-1614.
