Generation No. 1

1. Robert3 Carver (Isaac2, James1) was born 1594 in
Lincolnshire, England, and died 1680 in Marshfield,
MA. He married Christian Turner 04 August 1617 in
Trowbridge, Wiltshire CO, England. She died 23 July
1658 in Marshfield, MA.

Notes for Robert Carver:
Marriage Record of Roberte Carver and Christian Turner
dated August 4th 1617 from the Lydiard Millicent Parish
Register, Trowbridge, Wiltshire County, England.

Source: County of Wiltshire Council Record Office

Granted land 3 Sept. 1638, [Pope, "PIONEERS of
MASSACHUESETTS"], ("He was granted twenty acres lying
on the northwest side of Greenes Harbor River, about
five miles north of Duxbury and southeast of Marshfield
in Plymouth Colony, and a garden place upon Stoney
River.") [Plymouth Colony Records, vol. 1, p. 94, as
quoted by Savage, Genealogical Dictionary of New
England, vol. I; Whitmore's, Genealogical Guide to the
Early Settlers of America].

His name appeared at a Court of Assistants held at
Plymouth on 8 Oct. 1639 "Capt. Miles Standish, Mr.
Alden and Mr. Ed. Winslow are appointed to lay forth
the land and meaddow graunted to Job Cole and also the
land graunted to Francis Godfrey and Robert Carver"
[Plymouth Colony Records, vol. 1, p. 135].
He was living in Duxbury when his son John was born in
1637, and in 10 Sept. 1641, when Edward Hawes
of"Duxburrow" agreed to exchange 10 acres of upland
lying across Greens Harbor for 2000 feet of "sawne"
boards delivered by Robert Carver of the same place,
sawyer [Plymouth Colony Records, vol. 12, p. 75 as
quoted by William Jones in "Genealogies of Mayflower
Families vol. 1, p. 429]. In 1643, he moved to
Marshfield. Records there of 12 Feb. 1643 state "that
Robert Carver should be given that tract of meadow that
doth lie between Mr. Edward Winslow's fence and Mr.
William Thomas' fence from fence and creek to creek"
[Richard's "The History of Marshfield"]. Robert was
chosen to serve on the grand jury 7 Mar. 1643
[Plymouth Colony Records, vol. 2, p. 53]. He was also
given the right to bear arms and joined the train band
that year [Pierce's Colonial Lists, p. 75]. He was
made freeman 7 June 1648 [Plymouth Colony Records, vol.
2, p. 122] . In 1645, his name was on a list of some
twelve men who agreed to "pay money for someone to
teach school." He was a frequent juryman and, in 1653,
was appointed surveyor of highways.

Robert made a written agreement four days after the
death of their son, John (agreement dated 27 June 1679)
that would allow him to live with her and her children
the rest of his natural life. In return, she and her
children were to have his entire estate until her
eldest son William (Robert's favorite) turned twenty -
one. At that time, one half of the entire estate was
to be his and he would get the other half when his
mother died. William's brother, John was provided for
by his maternal grandfather, Willaim Ford, Sr. Robert
Carver died and was burried in April of 1680 at the age
of 86 (Marshfield Vital Records).

Notes for Millicent Ford:
After the death of her first husband, John Carver,
Millicent married Thomas Drake and moved with some of
her children to Weymouth, Ma. She owned land in
Shawmott, which was sold to John Sprague 4 May 1696
(Bristol County Deed,Vol. 2, p. 189, Taunton, Ma.).
This land must have been separate from the estate sold
by her son, David to Benjamin Dyer. The land might have
been left to her by her parents.

Notes for Timothy Carver:
"Timothy Carver the son of Eleazer Carver & of
Katherine his Wife was born Septem : 21 1720"
Vital Records of the Town of Middleborough, Volume III
(1901), Page 30

[Mitchell's "HISTORY of BRIDGEWATER," mentions another
Timothy, born 21 Sept., 1728, but there is no death
record for the first Timothy, nor a birth record for
the second, so it can be assumed that there was only
one Timothy Carver, born to this family.]

"The older Timothy Carver and his wife Rebecca Washburn
were early settlers in the vicinity of Carmel, New
York. Five children reached maturity; Rebecca, wife of
Jeremiah Hughson; Mehetable, wife of Daniel Pierce;
Timothy (1753- 1825); Thankful, wife of ------ Abbott;
Barnabas (1761-1831), who left no descendants."
Source: Pelletreau, William, History of Putman County,
New York, pp. 357-359.

"Timothy5 Carver (Eleazer4-3, John2, Robert1) came to
New York from eastern Massachusetts. This branch of the
family merits further study for Rebecca Washburn must
have been the descendant of a Mayflower passenger,
either Francis Cooke or John Billington. Of the
children of Timothy' Carver at least four died
unmarried, Jonathan, Mary, Rachel and Daniel. James7
Carver was involved in a famous law suit over a tract
of land."
