Thomas and Jacob Carew/Carron are in Carolina in Sept. 1663.A John Carron/Carrow is found in Currituck/Hyde Counties 1695-1739
John, Henry and Andrew are in Dorchester and Queen Anne MD by 1720 and John Carrow lives in Little Creek Hundred Delaware by 1750.
In that same time period we find Carrow,Carrowe and Carru in Bridgwater Somerset . George Carrow is transported to Barbados in 1686 for participating in the Monmouth Rebellion.This man seems to have had a son Henry on May10, 1685. A John Carru marries a Sydenham daughter in Bridgwater c. 1380s and the family is there until the 1685 period.
At that same time we find many Carrows in Cambridge, Nofolk and Cornwall.
We do not know where our Carrows came from, however.
Descendants of both of these families match in Y DNA as well as Autosomal DNA at FTDNA,23andme and AncestryDNA. Gedmatch kits M103328, M733723
