No Dates


Attorney on Laroche's estate on Antigua in 1821, and a small-scale slave-owner in the Slave Registers between 1817/8 and 1832. To date no larger-scale ownership of people or estates has been found, although he was described as 'planter' in the will of William Carr R.N. (dated 08/04/1807), in which George Carr was described by William Carr as 'my friend and namesake'.

  1. George Carr, or 'General Carr' was given as the father and Fanny Loving as the mother of Leonora Casey Carr, buried at the Moravian School in East Tytherton Wiltshire in 1837. Leonora Casey Carr had reportedly arrived in England in 1817.
