Dear LONDON Listers,
Visitng in search of Nathan CARRINGTON.
I'm teacher in Japan and wanted to do something other than the usual grammar
stuff and so have been working on a story about highwaymen with two
studnents. While doing this I came across a recorded event of an actual
robbery. The man who was robbed of his money (quite politely I may add) was
a King's Messenger called Nathan CARRINGTON.
I've searched the net and found odd bits and pieces about the man but
haven't been able to actually find out much about him. Here is what little I
He joined the King's Messenger Corps in 1728, was robbed in 1730, took part
in a raid on a house in 1765 (concerned a dissident as far as the government
were concerned) and was dead before 1777. I also found that he had a
daughter named Catherine who married the brother of famous 18th century
actor David GARRICK, one George GARRICK. One of George and Catherine's son
was a Nathan GARRICK, to whom properties was left by Nathan CARRINGTON.
These were houses - Lichfield House and Suffolk House - in Acton.
I'm still searching around but would appreciated it if anyone knowns
anything about Nathan CARRINGTON and his family.
I'm in no way related to CARRINGTON, just interested.
