Thomas Carter one of the additional signatories of the 1789 Swedenborgian conference (not in the printed list of 7.12.1788) who, like the poet William Blake and his wife and Dorothy Gott, appeared in no other Swedenborgian records. Really too common a name for me to make any intelligent guess to his identity

First entry in Godwin diary (1788-1836 only):

Benjamin Carpenter was (along with William Blake the poet and his wife Catherine and Dorothy Gott) one of the additional signatories to the Swedenborgian conference 1789 (not in the printed list of 7.12.1788) and like the Blakes and Gott he appeared in no other Swedenborgian records. He was  quite likely  the Unitarian minister Benjamin Carpenter, born April 1752 near Bromsgrove, son of Philip Carpenter and Ann Lant who were married at Coventry 30.12.1740 and who baptised 11 children at the Indeprndent chapel in Bromsgrove.
