    Notes:

    === Research Notes from Robert Lumsden

    The FamilyTreeDNA Carter Y-DNA Project clearly shows unrelatedness in genealogical time between John Carter of Corotoman, Thomas Carter "of Barford" and Thomas Carter of Isle of Wight. They are all R1b haplotype, so they did have a common ancestor back in time.

    The major problem with any of these early colonial settlers is that none of them, that I am aware of, left a single bit of proof as to who their families were in England.

    RE: Edwin's first wife was Martha Eltonhead, and all I've read is that his 2nd wife was a sister or sister-in-law of John Carter of Corotoman

    Crozier's assumption that Mary Conway, widow, was a sister of John Carter doesn't bear close examination, as the "niece" relationship is satisfied by the Eltonhead sisters.

    John Carter married Eleanor ELTONHEAD Brocas, sister of Martha ELTONHEAD Conway.

    "[William] Brocas, [Ralph] Wormeley, and [Rowland] Burnham were all brothers-in-law (married to Eleanor, Agatha, and Alice Eltonhead respectively)." Darrett B. and Anita H. Rutman, _A Place in Time: Middlesex County, Virginia, 1650-1750_, pp. 48-49.

    P. 54: "Brocas's Eltonhead wife, Eleanor, did not leave the vicinity at his death; marrying John Carter, she simply moved across the Rappahannock to the north shore."

    Bishop Meade originally thought that John Carter's second wife was Anne Carter:
    "The first John Carter had three wives--1st, Jane, the daughter of Morgan Glyn, by whom he had George and Eleanor; 2d, Ann, the daughter of Cleave Carter, probably of England; 3d, Sarah, the daughter of Gabriel Ludlowe, by whom he had Sarah. All these died before him, and he was buried with them, near the chancel, in the church which he built, and the tombstone from which we take the above covers them all, being still in the same position in the present church. He had also a son named Charles, of whom nothing is known.
    His son Robert was by his last wife, Sarah Ludlowe." _Old Churches, Ministers, and Families of Virginia_, vol. I, p. 110.

    Later, Meade named four wives for Carter:

    Vol. II, p. 121: "This inscription is to the north of the chancel, in the east end of the [Old Christ Church]: 'Here lyeth bureied ye body of John Carter, Esq., who died ye 10th of June, Anno Domini 1669; and also Jane, ye daughter of Mr. Morgan Glyn, and George her son, and Elenor Carter, and Ann, ye daughter of Mr. Cleave Carter, and Sarah, ye daughter of Mr. Gabriel Ludlow, and Sarah her daughter, which were all his wives successively, and died before him.'"

    Meade evidently didn't know about Carter's last marriage, to Elizabeth Shirley, who survived him.

    Hayden didn't know of any Carter sister, but says Edwin Conway *may* have married twice: "This second marriage, if it occurred, may have been to a sister of Anne Glynne, Carter's first wife."

    Probably the most comprehensive treatment of John Carter's wives is in Clifford Dowdey, _The Virginia Dynasties:
    "During the years of his rise and power at Corotoman, John Carter's personal life was made turbulent by deaths and remarriages. When he built his house about one hundred yards back from the riverfront, his family consisted of his wife, formerly Jane Glyn, his sons John II and George, and his daughter Elizabeth. His wife soon died, and he married a widow, Eleanor Brocas, from Lancastershire [sic; s/b Lancashire], England. She did not live long and died without having borne any children. Then he married Ann Carter, the daughter of Cleave (Cleve) Carter, thought to be an English cousin of her husband. She also died soon, leaving no children. Then came the wife who produced Robert: Sarah Ludlow was her name, and all known about her was that she was the daughter of Mr. Gabriel Ludlow: the 'Mr.' was carved on her tomb, and that designation was not used loosely. She was also the mother of Robert's sister Sarah. This fourth wife lasted a little longer than her immediate predecessors. She died in early 1668, when Robert was five. "Later in the year 1668 Colonel Carter took his fifth wife, Elizabeth Shirley (?), a widow from Gloucester County. This last, late venture - for he was near his own end then - seemed to be his first sour marriage. He died June 10, 1669, leaving his new wife about eight months pregnant. Carter's will showed what he thought of the mother of his unborn child and of his progeny by her.
    "She was to have £500 (which was part of the marriage contract), a Negro boy, 'her' necklace of diamond and pearls and 'her own books,' and share with Carter's sons John and Robert in the residual personal estate. To these bequests he pointedly added two books from the library (which otherwise went to John and Robert): Byfield's treatise _The Whole Duty of Man_ and _David's Tears_, an 'appropriate legacy for a mourning widow.' "Assuming that her child would be a boy, 'whose name is intended Charles,' and never referring to this future Carter exept as 'her son,' he provided for this heir as meagerly as decency would permit. His executors were to allow the widow £12 a year for his education and '[my] son John is to allow my wife's son necessary clothes.' . . . He provided for the contingency of the widow putting 'her son out [to] apprentice.' . . .
    "The widow's child was a boy whom she dutifully named Charles, after which he disappeared from the records. He was presumably alive at twenty-one, for John Carter II made provision for him in his will--one-third of the personal estate--though nothing indicated that he claimed his share."

    There is no mention of a Carter sister or sister-in-law who might have married Edwin Conway.
