Carter Family History

I first started tracing my Carter Family History a number of years ago, shortly after the birth of my first son. Since then I have managed to trace my ancesors back to the tea trade of Calcutta, India, ship brokering in Plymouth, Devon and staymaking & cordwaining in Victorian London.

My family research has since become a bit of an obsession and has quickly extended to include the Devon families of Bellamy, Madge, Orr, Saull, Webber and Wills, the London families of Marston and Morfett, and Irish families of Odell and Daly.

The Carter Family History website shows ancestry charts and family descendant trees relating to my family, as well as UK census extracts, birth, marriage & death records, newspaper cuttings, will & probate records and a selection of family photographs.

Much of my Carter family research has been done on the Internet. If you are looking for useful family tree websites, such as Ancestry.co.uk, Findmypast.com and Genes Reunited, please browse my recommended Genealogy Links.

The Carter Family History I show on this site is by no means complete. If you find any information missing or incorrect, please contact me using my feedback form - It's always nice to make contact with new relations.

Finally, I would like to thank my brother Gary AKA 'Garth', my cousin Kevin, my Uncle Larry, my father's cousin Jeremy, my distant Odell cousin Gill and my 3rd cousin Mike for all the help they have given me.
