One of my matches on AncestryDNA has indicated a connection through our respective Carr lines. This has prompted me to do some checking on the integrity of the Carr information in my tree and to develop further some of the lines that descend from my 3rd great grandfather Caleb Carr. Caleb was baptised at Longbenton in Northumberland on 23 Feb 1772, His parents were Adam Carr and Jane Nesbitt.
My efforts today have taken the total of Caleb’s children to 17 and I am still not sure I have found them all. The mothers of these children were:
- Mary Vardy (no marriage found)
- Elizabeth Young (marriage 1796)
- Elizabeth Hume (no marriage found)
- Rachael Smith (marriage 1808)
