2. Mrs Russell (Carrico) Kaiser Sr., "The Carrico Family," Florissant Valley
Historical Society Quarterly Vol. 14 April 1972 #1: These traditions have been
handed down through the family "The first record found in Maryland shows
transportation of one Peter Currico to Maryland 1657. This Peter, possibly the
father of the others, may have obtained a land grant in Charles Co., Maryland
and then returned to France for his family. The second trip was made in their
own ship called "La Voyage". It was manned by a group of brothers, among them
were a pair of twins Peter & Paul, believed to have been the oldest and a
sister Jane. They began a settlement in Charles Co. at Bryantown, Maryland.
Then they decided to return to France to sell all property there, purchase
stock and seeds and equipment and furnishings, also to bring members of the
family who had remained at home in France. Peter had married and begun a
family, so he was left behind to take care ofthe new settlement. Possibly some
of the other brothes left wifes and family in charge of Peter. The ship was
loaded and they set sail again from a port in France (it is claimed that they
lived in France near the Spanish border, maybe port of Bordeau, on the North or
Marsailles on the South). They did not make it to Maryland. Were shipwrecked
and lost at sea in a storm, or were captured and killed by pirates. Only Peter
and his family & possibly a wife & family of one or so of the brothers remained
form whom the Carrico family descends in the United States. Peter had two sons
Peter and Abel, from whom we can tract most of the Carricos, but a few who we
can not connect, leading to the beliefe that another brother may have left a
wife & children. In France the name may have been Carriceau, or if they lived
near Spain, Basques accounting for the Spanish spelling Carrico. Tradition also
says that a serious rift between the brothers Peter & Abel due to religion.
They were originally a Catholic family and Peter & most of his descendents at
least for the first few generations remaind Catholic. Abel married Elizabeth
Sims, a Huguenot, and moved with them to Fairfax Co., Virginia, where his
family was raised Protestantca. Hereinafter cited as "Carrico Family".

15. Tim Carrico Weaver, "Carrico Family," email message from
to Carol R Mitchell, 1998, CARRICO GENEALOGICAL
INFORMATION FROM MY VISIT TO PORTUGAL MARCH 17, 1997MARCH 26, 1997 W. Timothy
Carrico Weaver April 3, 1997. With the wonderful help of Celia Silva Brito, a
student at the University of Coimbra, I was able to research four sources of
genealogical data while in Portugal: The Inquisition records of the Torre do
Tombo (National Archive) in Lisbon; the Book of Council Meetings, lists of
hunting privileges, 1443, of MontemoroNovo at the Municipal Library of
MontemoroNovo; Baptismal, marriage and death records, 15331698, of
MontemoroNovo located at the Municipal Archive of Evora; the Tax lists of
MontemoroNovo, 16991700, located at the Municipal Library of MontemoroNovo.
The director of the Municipal Library of MontemoroNovo, Dr Jorge Fonseca, a
delightful man, was most helpful in locating the records mentioned. I have
discovered that Pero (Peter) Dias Carrico of MontemoroNovo was condemned a Jew
by the Inquisition. He was charged with the crime of "Judaismo" (Judaism) and
sent to prison for four years in 1629. In 1633 he confessed his crime and was
set free ("auto de fe"). His grandfather was also named Pero Dias Carrico. In
the same town, MontemoroNovo (new), the ancient council meeting records of 1443
list a Lourenco Anes Carrico and Martin Lourenco Carrico. The Carrico family
originally comes from the area of MontemoroVelho (old) in the Beira Litoral
(Central Coast) which is about 180 miles north of Lisbon and about 20 miles
from Coimbra. The family has its own coat of arms consisting of three marsh
plants, or carricos, on a silver crest. The coat of arms and its privileges
were traditionally awarded by the Portuguese kings for service in defeating the
Moors. It is well known that families from the Beira Litoral resettled the
Alentejo after the defeat of the Moors. They migrated with the armies of the
Christian Knight Geraldo Sempavor who captured Evora in 1165 in the name of the
Portuguese king Henriques. Families from the vineyards of the Beira Litoral
established the Alentejo as a major area of wine production. The resettlement
also assured the monarch a population that would fight any reinvasion of the
Moors for protection of their land. Incidentally, in the records we
researched, the name Pero was rare in the 16th and 17th centuries. We found no
references to the name other than that of the two Pero Carricos. We did not
find tax records of any Carrico in the 169899 tax list of the same town,
perhaps suggesting that the family may have fled following the trials of Pero
Dias. 1. CARRICO: THE WORD, THE FAMILY NAME AND THE TOWN Carrico, The Word.
The translations below are a combination of my struggles with Portuguese and
Celia's excellent translations. We did not have time to translate everything
before I left, so I plowed ahead. Blame me for any mistakes, not Celia. The
word carrico is written in Portuguese with a cedillo under the second "c;"
thus, it is pronounced carreeso with the emphasis on the second syllable (the
unaccented "I" is pronounced as a long "e" in Portuguese.) I did find one
place named Carrico without the cedilla but did not have time to explore it.
The word carrico, and its feminine version carrica, are found in several
dictionaries. These sources are detailed below. From the Lello Universal
Dicionary Enciclopedico LusoBrasileiro em 2 Volumes, Organizado e Publicado

>From the Dicionario Portugues Latino Por Francisco Torriuha, the Latin versions
of carrico are carex, caricis, carrical and carectum. Latin vulg. (common
usage) is car[r]iceu. It seems that the name derives directly from Latin, and
the Portuguese constructed their word much as the Romans. From the Dicionario
Portugues/Ingles Dicisonarios Academicos, the word carrico is a botanic term
referring to the specific cane, carex or car[r]iceu in vulg. Latin. The
feminine carrica refers to the sedge wren. Carrical is a plantation. The
Spanish word for carrico is carrio. Source. Dicionario De Espanhol
