Welcome to De Carteret Family Web site.

The surname De Carteret   has been recorded in British history since circ 999.

The 29th of August 1999, The De Carteret Families from various parts of the world. USA, England, France, Jersey, Guernsey, Sark were invited to join the Millennium celebrations of Carteret village in Normandy.

Since that inaugural gathering, we have had a Reunion of our De Carteret Family members and friends biannually.

    I am a descendant of the Huguenot Daniel Perrin who came to New Jersey on the “Phillip” which landed here in 1665 and which was commanded by Philip Carteret. The Perrin family is supposed to have long been connected with the Carterets by blood or marriage on the Isle of Jersey. I have the compilation by Howland Delano Perrine in 1910 which explains some of this connection but would be interested in any new research. Thank you for your attention.

      I am related ? through marriages of the past…

        Past notation :
        I was so interested to receive your site from a gent on line while I was looking for Vibert and came across Jean- Pierre Vibert the rosarian. I was looking into our family history when a recent obituary sparked my interest. It was a LeVesconte who would have been I believe a 4th cousin or the like of my father. I stumbled in my history on the maternal names Vibert and LeFeuvre which no one seems to have researched on this end.

        I have only a few days ago found a part of my family history linking me to the name Vibert of ?.

        My father was Isaac Lorne MacDougall born Feb 12, 1922 in Inverness Cape Breton Nova Scotia to Bertram Camillus LeVesconte MacDougall of Inverness and Helen Jean McKenzie of Canso, Guysborough Co. They lived in Inverness and later moved to the home of John Lorne(see below) in Strathlorne.

        My grandfathers father was John Lorne MacDougall, Barrister and his mother was Caroline Louisa Alberta LeVesconte of Arichat. They lived in Strathlorne, Inverness County, Cape BBreton, Nova Scotia, Canada.

        Her father Isaac worked with his father’s shipping firm DeCarteret and LeVesconte’s in between Arichat and Channel Island sites. (photo on internet)
        My great-great grandmother’s maiden name was Caroline Susan Jean(died 1876), daughter of John Jean and Louisa Moore(Arichat). Isaac LeVesconte my great great grandfather was a member of the Canadian Parliament as financial secretary in the James W Johnton- Charles Tupper administration and he was Spanish Consular agent in Arichat. He was the son of …

        Jeanne Malzard ( her mother was Jeanne Vibert, born Jan 30, 1765, died Feb 18, 1821 and father Isaac Malzard), who married Peter LeVeconte of St. Helier who was the son of Pierre LeVesconte and Jeanne LeFeuvre, b.1762. Peter LeVesconte, 35 Broad St., St. Helier.
        ***I do know that Isaac had a sister Elizabeth Jane b. Oct 27, 1824 died about 1880 whose husband Peter DeCarteret(1786-1875) son of Jean DeCarteret and Rebecca Rauland of New Rochelle France assisted with the Jersey side of the business died in 1875 in Switzerland. She was baptized at St. Brelode. The DeCarteret’s lived in Jersey, Arichat, Paris, and Bex Vaud in Switzerland. They had a son Peter John DeCarteret born 1850 married Emma Henrietta Cave (daughter of Baronet Cave of Hartley-Wintney)Surrey England. Baronet Cave was Chancellor of the Exchequer in the Lloyd George Government. They lived in Jersey, Switzerland and later at Hanom Court, Surrey near Bristol. (photo on internet) They had 3 children Elizabeth Lilian, b. June 1873 married. Reported to have died in childbirth. ? child of Elizabeth and Isaac had a sister Livy LeVesconte who married a Rev. A. Roger and lived in Switzerland. They had a son in May of 1859 but there is no further info on the Roger family known to me.r husband name. Another son Harold Richard born April 1875 killed in an accident while on leave from WW1. Then Muriel boron in 1876. ?died young. No other info on this family.***

        I am very interseted to know more. Thank You.

        • Sindy Boleat says:

          Hi Lois, names such as Vibert, Le Vesconte, Le Feuvre and Malzard have prominent historical significance in Jersey, Channel Islands and there is an abundance of family information, births, deaths & marriages etc
          You can obtain further information via Jersey Archive or the Societe Jersiaise.

          • Lois Foster says:

            Thank you Sindy. I hope to go there one day soon and do some further research. It seems they were a determined group.

        • bev kennedy says:

          This is amazing. The Jeans married into the Brine family in Nova scotia and the family also traces a branch from the arrival of a Col George Moore who arrived in Halifax a year before it’s founding with his college friend Lord Cornwallis suffice to say the family history is very unusual the ties to Jersey Channel Isles are well worth exploring. Oddly amongst my social circle are friends whose family names I recognize from residences literally next door to each other in the Channel Isles. And they continued to conduct business and inter marry in Nova Scotia. My grandmother’s research has proven to be spot on

        • Hi
          Must say you know as much as us more in some family’s
          We would like you to join Le cercle and have your contribution added to the webpage for Peter John of Hanan Court if you give us permission

          • Lois Foster says:

            I have not written in a while but you had asked our connection. I believe my great great grandmother Caroline Louisa was a sister of Jane LeVesconte b: Oct 7, 1824 married to Peter DeCarteret b. 1786, had a son Peter and daughter in law Emma Henrietta (Cave); they had children Elizabeth Lillian(died at birth), Harold Richard and Muriel.
            I will have a closer look but there is a royal blood document published on the web which lists them as descendants of King Alfred “The Great”; then King Edward the Elder, : King Louis 1V and so on…

    • Mauric says:

      I can’t help you, but I am interested by Philip Carteret.
      Looking for a portrait of this famous sailor.
      I am writing a book about great men of this time, their stories on the oceans, and the text must get drawings from their busts.
      Perhaps you have a photo of old painting showing your ancestor, and perhaps you will have time and friendship to send it to me. Great thanks

      • Julian Parker, Harpenden UK says:

        Dear Maurice Can you let me know if you ever published your book and the title. My wife is a de Mestral and apparently there is a connection with the family in Switzerland and Morges Museum has an exceptional model of the Swallow which is now fully renovated. As I am an ex mariner a member of the curating committee has contacted me to see if I could find out more about this old ship. Any leads

    • Lyman Perrine says:

      Hi Karen,

      I just discovered I’m a direct male decedent of Daniel Perrin. Not sure if you’ll get this. Are you on Ancestry.com?

      I guess we would be long lost cousins 🙂

      • Karen Kane says:

        I’m on the council of the Huguenot Society of America too. I would love to have more Perrin’s join. Karen

    • John Perrine says:

      My name is John Perrine. I am a direct descendent of the Huguenot Daniel Perrin. I was able to trace through my father & grandfather (John W. Perrine) Highstown, NJ. A distant grandparent lived on a farm (Perrine farm), now Monmouth battlefield and accounts of George Washington and others battled the British while he lived on his farm. Also the story of Molly Pitcher was born there. Something to pass on to my children. Any further info always welcome.

      • Karen Kane says:

        I’m on the Council for the Huguenot Society of America and would love to have more Perrin’s join. Karen Kane

    • James Goff says:

      I have enjoyed the site. While tracing my Goff ancestery I found a Perrine grandmother a grandaughter of Henry Perrine of Staten Island. Any infomation about the Perrines would be apreciated. Thank You. James

  2. Sindy Boleat says:

    In April 1665 Philip Carteret, son of George left Jersey in the Channel Islands arriving in New York Harbour on 29th July 1665. Daniel Perrin was his administrator and was born in France in 1640, died New Jersey 6th Spetember 1719. He was of genteel birth, of Norman descent and a Hugenot. He travelled with Maria Thorel born 1640, of french descent. They were granted a marriage license by Gov.Philip Carteret and married on the 12th February 1666. They are both in the painting by Howard Pyle which is in the circuit Court in Newark, New Jersey.

  3. Lyle Allington says:

    My Grandfather was Alfred George de Carteret married to Florence May de Carteret
    nee Robert who was b.approx 1882 and d.1968 Death certificate shows her a widow.
    If anyone has any information regarding the de carterets of Jersey, where I was born,
    or Carteret (France), where i understand the family came from, about the time of the
    French revolution, I would be very grateful.
    Thank you

        So very sorry Mike , I’ve only seen your reply after all these years .
        Have started again to trace the de Carteret side of the family as me husband is house bound now and would find it so interesting. He left the Island when he was 15 to join the Merchant Navy but remembers his grandmother well

    • jan smith says:

      My late ex-husband is descended from a Carterette, b 1812 (Mrs Wheeler, wife of a quarryman), on Guernsey. She was known as ‘Catherine’ until her husband died in 1860s, when she became ‘Harriet’. Am expecting full story from Priaulx Library this week, but assume she was named for one of the Sark Carterets

  6. Joseph Carter says:

    Hi, I’ve been tracing my family history and I came upon this website: “http://melungeons.com/articles/mariettahistory.htm”; Which seems to link Honfroi de Carteret with the Carters of Virginia. The earliest ancestor I can find, however, was named LeCaretier: “http://trees.ancestry.com/tree/21991816/family?cfpid=20006502938” and was born 100 or so years after Honfroi. If anyone has any information that can link these two or not would be great. Thank you.

    • Stuart Rogers says:

      I am descended from Phillipe de Carteret (1612) and Mary de la Place and their daughter Elizabeth (1647) who married Benjamin Dumaresq.

      Further to your reference to Melungeons it would not surprise me if they were part of the North African crews of either Carthagians or Phoenicians.

      The Bourne Stone. found at Cape Cod has the name “Hano” carved in it, along with a claim to the land. Hano was a Carthaginian Admiral abt 425BC.

      The Phoenician explorers were also excellent navigators and sometime after 600AD possibly came to North American along with their mixed crews from North Africa seeking trade. There is other stone inscription evidence of them penetrating into the centre of the continent along the Mississippi and its western tributaries. I believe that Melungeons have been in North America much longer than most people accept. See Gloria Farley’s books or those of Barry Fell if you are interested in this further.

    • Thanks for any info for I am also looking forward to confirming parents for an “Odo LeCarterer” 1200. Odo is the earliest name on the Virginia Carter line of my tree and the only clue is that Odo was born in Normandy, France. I am using ancestry.com and their hints, but this seems to be a dead end; However, I would like to find the names that connect and carry the Virginia Carter line back as far as possible.


        We might have a connection. I have a line from Odonious (Odo) and his father Monsieur Philippe Le Carette

    • Marilyn (William Edward DeCarteret) DeCarteret says:

      Hi Mike,
      My husbands great grandfather was born on the Isle of Jersey and had his own sailing ship. The ship was lost at sea and his body was later found, washed ashore. His son, William DeCarteret, lied about his age (was 12) and joined the British Navy in order to help support his mother and siblings. He later lived for a while with Queen Victoria and went to school with her sons and Winston Churchill, who became a lifelong friend. We have little other information and wondered if there might possibly be some history out there!
      Thanks for any help you might give us.

  9. Monique Decarteret says:

    Hi-I’m a Decarteret from Jamaica, my family is the only ones in the country with that last name. My father never knew his dad but gathered that his mother met his father while he was visiting Jamaica from france on a ship. Apparently my grandmother lost contact with my grandfather-my siblings and I would love to find my grandfather but have no idea where to start; we don’t have any info…..my father was born in the ’50s…..any suggestions?

    • John Raymond de Carteret says:

      I am intrigued by Monique Decarteret’s email. I was born in Jamaica 5th Dec. 1945. My father Raymond Jasper de Carteret, was a GP in Brown’s Town St. Ann. I went to prep school at de Carteret School (now College) in Mandeville. When I was 12 I went to Munro College, St. Elizabeth, until I came to England to finish school and university. I worked back in my father’s practice for 6 months in 1972 before returning to the UK.
      I never met another de Carteret in Jamaica. The school was named after Bishop de Carteret, who was bishop of Jamaica in the early 20th century. I never did know which branch of the family he came from. He was not a direct relative of ours and my father coming to Jamaica was not connected with the bishop. My father Raymond Jasper, was born in India and his father Herbert, in New Zealand. My great grandfather emigrated with his family to New Zealand in ?1848 from Jersey. I wonder if Monique is a relative of the Bishop? I have 3 sisters, Scharlie, Lois and Dorothy. They all live in UK now and have children and grandchildren.

      • Dr Ken Hines says:

        I have just come across your message by chance. I worked with a Dr Jasper DeCarteret at St Barts hospital London in the early 1970s. I know he had a daughter called Lois who I think trained as a nurse. I last heard of her married and living in the Birmingham area, but thats some 40+ years ago. They were both very committed to their Christian faith and I believe Lois and her husband were working for the church in Birmingham. I imagine Jasper was promoted to Glory some years ago, but I feel sure you are his son. Jasper was my mentor at the time and I greatly enjoyed working with him and learnt a great deal from him

    It has been passed thru our family that my 7xgrandfather Edward Taylor born 1650 in Yorkshire, Eng died 1710 in New Jersey was married to Catherine De Carteret born 1652 in Monmouth Co, New Jersey, daughter of Philippe De Carteret.

    my great grand mother was a carter.

    • Good to see your note Norma. I also have Johannes on my Carter family tree.
      The earliest name on the Carter line of my tree is Odo Le Carterer 1200. Seems to be a dead end with only clue being that Odo was born in Normandy France. I saw the movie of Normandy Landing, and am trying to learn some of the history of that area. I started looking at maps of the area and saw the village of Carteret (nine miles from Jersey) and wonder if the Odo on my tree from Normandy might have been born in that village and knowing that during medieval times people sometimes used their location names as their surnames, I thought that Odo might be connected to that area. I read on someone’s tree about three Carter brothers who saved the life of the king while fighting in a battle and were knighted. Through further looking and saw two Carteret men on the list of men who fought in the battle of Hastings in 1066 and read that William did reward his companions with land in England after their victory and some were given titles and some were knighted. At first I thought that Odo was a first name and was looking for that name, and found Odo de Bayeux (Biship of Bayeux). Bayeux is another village not to far from Carteret and maybe located on or near a Bayou. Then I realized that Odo is often a designation meaning rich and powerful and that I still had no name of the man to whom it belonged. Then I saw info about the Channel Islands and the Carteret family there. I am hopeful of finding fairly reliable parents for Odo Carterer and am still searching. Most of the people I know spend 90% of their time just surviving and have little to no opportunity to do any real searching for roots, but learning where some of my people may have lived makes me feel good. Am hoping that you may have some thoughts on our Carters ?



        I am quite frustrated with the fact that I lived in Normandy for three months while writing a book on military history April – June 2016 and didn’t start my family history project until after I returned to the States.

        My wife and I lived in the small village of Falaise, about 75 miles from Carteret and didn’t have a clue my relatives were (possibly) from there. My wife and I often visited the town of Bayeux. Falaise is the home of William the Conquer and his castle is still there. However, it is a benefi to have lived there and can picture the small towns and villages referenced in the reference material.

        My Carter roots are in East Tennessee. I am retired and live in Palm Springs, California.

  15. Rob Wrenn says:

    I am a descendent of a Philip de Cartaret who lived in Charlestown, Massachusetts Bay Colony (immediately north of Boston), dying there April 19, 1767; also involved in affairs of Cambridge, Mass. He was reportedly a mariner, referred to as “Captain”. There is no connection that I know of to the de Carterets of New Jersey. He was married to Elizabeth Dunster, whose grandfather, Henry, was the president of Harvard College. He is called “Cartwright” in his marriage record.

    The one clue I have as to his origins comes from the Heraldic Journal, Volume III, published in Boston in 1867, p. 139: “De Carteret Family. — In the Suffolk Registry we find Letters of Administration granted 9th August, 1745, to Philip de Cartaret of Charlestown, on the estate of Edward de Cartaret, formerly of the parish of St. John’s, in the Island of Jersey. We learn from Mr. T. B. Wyman, that Philip de Carteret was of Charlestown, taxed there as late as 1766. He m. 16 November, 1727, Elizabeth Dunster, and had Philip, and Abigail, wife of William Whittemore. He died 15th April, 1767.”
    I’m not sure what the “Suffolk Registery” is, though it may be the Suffolk County, Massachusetts Registry of Deeds. There are records for a Philip de Carteret as a grantee in the index, though none obviously refer to Edward or to the Island of Jersey.
    I think a Dunster family history
    I looked in the index on your site and did not find an Edward who be an obvious candidate for the Edward referred to above. There is an Eduoard b. 1701 on Sark; There was an honorable Edward de Carteret who died in Essex 1739.
    Does anyone have suggestions about how I might go about determining whether there was in fact an Edward de Carteret in the parish of St. John’s , Island of Jersey in the first half of the 18th Century?

  16. Jen Dickson says:

    My grand mother was Annie Charlotte de Carteret born in New Zealand. She was a missionary in India and married Maurice J.J. Wark and they spent most of their married life there, returning to Australia when they were in their late 70’s.They had 4 children who returned to Australia for tertiary education. Don’t know if any of this is of interest to anyone! Just happened upon the web site.

          DEAR JENNIFER ,



      HI JEN,




      DEAR JEN,

      • Susan says:

        I am new to this site. My mother was a granddaughter of Annie Wark (de Carteret) and I have been researching the family tree. I know the names of her four children but am also interested in learning more about the voyage of Jean de Carteret from Jersey to New Zealand.

    • Margie O'Brien says:

      Hi Jen Dickson
      I am a descendant of Margaret de Carteret m Clement Dumaresq, Jersey and doing ancestry searches as visiting Jersey this Christmas 2023.
      An odd question but do you know my sister Gina OBrien mum of Deanna Ezzy?

  17. Maggie Heidenreich says:

    I, too, have been looking for information regarding the marriage between Edward Taylor and Catherine de Carteret. I’ve looked in the de Carteret family tree but didn’t find a Catherine born in or about 1652 in Middletown, NJ. There is the legend of the silver cup, which could have been “a gift” from the de Carterets themselves if Edward Taylor I once worked for them but that is rather far-fetched. Daughters of cousins of Philippe de Carteret may have existed but few ever bothered to document the lives of younger sisters of titled persons. I would love to figure this out!

    • Kathy Ellis says:

      Have heard of the silver cup legend…. It’s not in my Taylor side of the family…. My line is Edward and Catherine as well. Do you have any idea who the parents of Catherine DeCarteret were?

  18. Kim O'Brien says:

    Dear de Crteret members, can anyone shed light on this recent article I found in our National Library microfilm project of our local newspapers. The Mercury – is a local Tasmanian Paper. can anyone shed light on madame Hubert? I have a feeling she is possibly a descendant of mary Ann Carteret who married Elias Hubert. I would love to know the story behind this intriguing newspaper article. Kim O’Brien (Mr.), Shearwater, Tasmania, Australia

    House Searched After Her
    Heirs Unearthing Treasure
    LONDON, June 26.

    Twenty thousand sovereigns have been found in a little house at St. Owen’s Bay, Jersey, Channel Islands, in which resided an eccentric lady named Madame Hubert, over 90 years of age, who died recently. She was known to have had an income of £2,000 a year, and as she never banked money and was very frugal, her heirs decided upon making a thorough search of the house after her death. Sovereigns and half sovereigns, mostly Victorian, were found in all sorts of odd drawers and corners. Other treasures also were discovered. They included 10 letters written by King Charles II to Sir George De Carteret, who was one of Madame Hubert’s ancestors.
    The search continues.’

  19. Claire Scott says:

    I am tracing my ancient many times great grandmother Honora de Carteret born about 1084 who married my many times great grandfather Sit Thomas Fowke ‘The Valiant’ and wondered if anyone has any infomation on her or her father Sir Offray de Carteret?
    Claire Scott

  20. John Davis says:


    does anyone have a family tree of the Cartaret family that might establish the relationship between Magdalene de Carteret (whose monument is in the Town Church, St Helier, Jersey, 1747) and Georgiana Caroline de Carteret (1716-1780).

    I am working on the monuments of Sir Henry Cheere (1703-1781), who is thought to have carved the Magdalene Monument, which was erected at a cost of £300 from funds left by her nephew, Captain de Sausmarez. Captain de Sausmarez’s monument in Westminster Abbey was also carved by Sir Henry Cheere.

    I would be really very grateful for any information about this side of the family.

  21. michele ogier says:

    Hi im looking for anybody who could possibly help me with my search. My granddad was Fredrick Thomas De Carteret born possibly 1918/19/20 and sadly passed away 1987. I belive his mother was a Lena De Carteret, and all we no of his father, the birth certificate said “son of harry”. This is all the information I have. He was brought up by a Frank and Annie Lawrence, from Sark then they moved to Guernsey. My granddad fred married a Evelyn Clara Tostevin.

  22. Dr. L says:

    Can anyone help – my maternal grandmother was a ‘Langois’ (born on Jersey and died there sometime between 1925-1937) and was married to a ‘Kessel’. I was told she was descendent of a ‘ de Carteret’ and had some link to the town of Elizabeth in New Jersey -my mother was evacuated here as a child, and since her father died of TB before the liberation, she stayed on the UK mainland.
    What would be the best way of confirming a link ?

    Thank you.

    • mikdecar says:

      Ihave no record of you responding to your input. To the Web of 8/10 2013
      You say your descent from 1 st Jean de Carteret through to 4th George (Sir ) 1667-95 Then George s father was not Abraham but Phillip 1641-76
      As you will see on the Webpage go to the index this pedigree is of much interest to us as there are gaps which we love to fill in
      The very best
      Thanks Mike

      • Lynnsey Schaaf says:

        Hi Mike, I haven’t gotten a chance to respond. I have been rsearching other branches of my family and I am just now seeing this. I will click the links above and go research. My Grand Father who is sitll living Arthur Lee Catrett and my Mother and uncles are listed on the family tree. We have about 18 people to add on that line whi are my Grand Fathers grandchildren and his siblings and their families. Thank you for responding and I am continuing this sides line at this time.

  24. Tom Raabe says:

    Strong evidence has surfaced concerning the location of the wreck of Green’s Blackwall Liner Madagascar, which disappeared in August 1853 after sailing out of Hobson’s Bay (at that time, the name of the port of Melbourne, Australia). Some of you may be aware of the tragedy that had befallen the wife of Rivoire Edward De Carteret, Frances Elizabeth Tolcher, who was a passenger on board this ship with the three young children of the couple. It may be possible to help prove that the wreck in question is indeed the Madagascar and what the circumstances concerning the tragic disappearance were, if an artefact which has been found could perhaps be identified as belonging to a passenger. It could of course be from any of the first class passengers, but may even have been in the possession of Frances. Perhaps an old family portrait exists somewhere, depicting this rather rare artefact. If any family member is interested in assisting or finding out more, please contact me.

  25. Larry Woods says:

    When I look at the Database/Surnames/Taylor on the De Carteret Family Web Site I see Edward Taylor born 1650 Yorkshire, England married to Catherine De Carteret born 1652 NJ and was the daughter of Phillip and Catherine De Carteret. I have been looking for Edwards wife Catherine maiden name and have never found it. Has anyone found legitimate proof that Edward Taylor was married to Catherine De Carteret?

  26. David Scott says:

    Dear De Carteret members, I am hoping someone can shed some light on some missing gaps/confusion in my family tree. I am a descendant of Abraham Bisson m Susanne De Carteret. I currently believe Susanne is the daughter of Amice De Carteret m Sarah Dumaresq. Is Amice son of Francois (-1660) m Mary Balliache, as your database suggests (not sure if the dates quite add up). Or is he son of Phillipe De Carteret m Genette de Soullemont as other sources on the www suggest?
    Any help in solving this puzzle would be greatly appreciated.
    Thanks in advance.
    David Scott

    • Jasmine says:

      Hi David,
      I am also a Bisson.
      Are you referring to the Bisson family that married into the De Carteret family that are blood relatives of the Royal family? (Diana, prince William etc)?
      That is how my family is related.

    • Margie O'Brien says:

      Kia ora David from New Zealand
      My daughter Indi is researching this bloodline.
      You are correct, Amice De Carteret is the father of Susanne and is the son of Philippe De Carteret m Genette de Soullemont.
      We are also a descendant of Sara Bisson m The Reverend Richard Le Feuvre and he is great grandfather of Caroline Le Feuvre and she was my great grandmother x 3.
      I will be visiting Jersey this Christmas 2023…very excited

  29. George Dalton says:

    How does one become a member of Le Cercle De Carteret? One of my ancestors, John Hubert DeCarteret was born 1 Mar 1796, and emigrated to the US from either France or the Isle of Guernsey. After his arrival in the US, he appears to have lived in South Carolina, where he married before settling in North Carolina. His wife Mary Ann, last name unknown, was born in South Carolina; they had a child, Mary Eliza, who died in 1826 as an infant in York, South Carolina. John Hubert DeCarteret died on 9 Nov 1859 in Raleigh, Wake County, North Carolina. I would appreciate any information on him.

    • Karen Macleod says:

      I too am a descendant of the de Carteret family. “My” Amice de Carteret was baptised in 1664 and he was the son of Helier de Carteret and Marie Jutize….do you know anything about these people??
      Would love to ehar

    • Kim says:

      Did you ever receive a reply re your inquiry about john hubert? He is my 3rd ggf and I too am searching for info.

      • George Dalton says:

        John Hubert is also my 3rd great grandfather. In addition to what I said above, this is what I know about him: According to his tombstone in Raleigh NC, he was born on the Isle of Guernsey in 1796. A Mr. DeCarteret arrived in Philadelphia on the ship “Fate” in 1817. The next record I have found is a court document from 1826 saying that, in 1824, he had entered into a partnership (on the basis of an oral agreement) in York, South Carolina, to establish a book binding firm. His first child also died and was buried in York. in 1825 or 6, his business partner died intestate and there was ensuing litigation to sort out all the details of what to do with the assets of the business. By late 1827 he was no longer in York. I presume he went directly to Raleigh, NC, where he did became successfully established as a book binder. He also gave private lessons in French to those who hired him.

  30. Elisabeth says:

    Hello –

    I am interested in learning more about Sir Philippe DeCarteret, son of Philip DeCarteret and Anne Dowse. According to my records and a lot of research I have done, he allegedly was secretly wed to Mary Henrietta Stuart, daughter of Charles Stuart I of England. It is due to this alleged link and their daughter, Elizabeth DeCarteret that I am most closely linked to the DeCarteret family. It is the descendants of this particular line that made their way to New Jersey. I am anxious to find our more about this part of the line.

    Any information you can provide would be very useful! Thank you!

  31. George John Hunter de Carteret says:

    Hi , my 3x Great Grandfather Abraham Vibert was married to Elise ( Eliza ) De Carteret ( 1817-1891 ) on the 24/06/1838 in St Ouen. All the census records have her listed as being born in Sark , however I can’t find any record of her in your database. Anyone know who her parents were ?

    Thanks Ian

  43. Janet McDermott says:

    Hello. I am looking for information about Lucy Ann Holt (née de Carteret) who married my paternal great-grandfather Henry Holt in 1914, I believe. (He had been widowed many years before this and Lucy was his second wife.) She was born at Vale Farm in St Peter, Jersey in 1875 and was the daughter of George de Carteret. I have copies of her Registration papers, filed during the German Occupation of Jersey in the Second World War and also her Will, written in 1942, but I have so far been unable to find out when and where she died. She had one son, named Leighton Stuart Holt, born in 1915 and I am also trying to find out more about him. Does anyone know anything about Lucy Ann or Leighton Stuart? If so, I would be very glad if you would send me some information. Thank you.

    • Janet
      well I will try to help on this as we have her Great Nephew in
      involved now John Hunter de Carteret father George Roger (d)2001
      Lucy Ann would be a aunt to Roger.
      You should look at the 1911 census , deaths at Find my past.com. wills on line

  44. Jim Ridges says:

    Wikipedia, under Philip Carteret, has a portrait of a young man said to be the Explorer, presumably the Captain of HMS Swallow who circumnavigated the world 1766-68. As he named New Ireland in the SW Pacific on 10th Sept. 1767 (250 years next year) we would like a reproducible image for celebrations. Does anyone know the artist, date painted and location of the painting so that a suitable image could be obtained

  45. Connie says:

    Is there any genealogy in your family showing the de Carteret family and the de Carette families are related? In Normandy, de Carteret and de Carette meant of Carteret and of Carette.
    These are separate towns, in Normandy, I would think are the origin of both family names.
    I have ancestors, having a number of spelling variations for their name.
    They are not Irish Carters, or cartmakers. They are from France.
    There is no record of LeCharetter I can find.
    Do you know if Philipe 1259 or Roger LeCharetter 1222 or Odonius LeCaretier 1200 might be from your family?

    • James Carter says:

      I was wondering where Odonius Lecaretier came from. Did his father come from France? Ancestry.com says he was born in Bedfordshire but when I checked the Bedfordshire historical society they have no record of him. Like he never existed.

      • norma baxter brown says:

        aparently odonius was born in france….then changed name to odo carter when he moved to england….

    • Connie
      the only leads I can give at this point is the spelling at the dates you mention
      are from documents of the time , unless you can give me the detail of the information you found , needs to be translated
      we have Phillip s and Rogers as you would have seen in the index
      Do not give UP

    • norma baxter brown says:

      i have odonius le caretier in my family…
      he moved to england from france..
      at that time he changed his name to Odo Carter
      my great grandmother was a carter….this part of the family eventually came to tennessee


        Where in Tennessee? We might have a connection. I have a line from Odonious (Odo) and his father Monsieur Philippe Le Carette
        BIRTH 1175 • Carette, France

  51. Lorraine Palmer says:

    Hello, I just visited St.Ouen Manor April 2017 after doing some research on my Jersey family tree. My link to the deCarteret family would be:Jean le la Haule 1561-1630 married Catherine Sarre 1556-1607, then Edouard Sarre 1529-1579 married Marie Hue.
    Edouard Sarre’s parents were: Michael Sarre 1496-1539 who married Marguerite deCarteret. Then: Edouard deCarteret 1475 married Marie Sarre 1501-1540. Edouard’s parents were: Sir Philippe deCarteret 1453-1534. who married Margaret Haleston 1455.
    My question is: Can anyone tell me if Michael Sarre and Marguerite deCarteret’s marriage record is correct and what would her birth date be? Lorraine Palmer

  52. Jasmine says:

    I have a question!
    I was given my family tree ‘book’ that was put together that ended up costing around $50,000 to be put together!
    In there, it mentioned that a side of the De Carteret family married into the Bisson family (spelt Buisson back then) having to do with prince William and an Elizabeth? I’m so confused as what to say right now as I don’t have the book with me.
    I would like to know all about it. Who married who etc.
    It mentions my family (the Bisson) being related to princess Diana, is there anyone here who is also related to that side?
    Also read that a few of the Bisson family members are buried with the royal family and de carteret family in the cemetery that the royals are buried in.
    Please help me if you can!

  53. Rachel says:

    Trying to find a John de Carteret who married Irene Lily Penna . She was born in 1899 Cornwall but was living on Guernsey when the 1911 census was taken. Elderly relatives know nothing further and are keen to find out more about John and his ancestors.
    Many thanks.

  54. Susan Watton says:

    Trying to find a Charles de Carteret, whose family lived in St Helier Jersey in the 1970’s, I believe he had three brothers and their father had been in the army. The house was near Howard Davies park, a lovely old house. I have fond memories of cooking lunch for the old gentleman who was always so grateful for looking after him. I would so love to find out about them. I was Susan Webb in those days early 1970’s and Charles had an old Morris Minor green car I think.

  55. Pam says:

    Just found an entry on this site for Esther Elizabeth DE CARTERET (b 1790) md to Rev. Jean Thomas AHIER. I believe this is wrong. Esther married Baron Don Antonio Lopez Suassa Diaz DA FONSECA on 8 May 1811, St Helier.

  56. John Perrine says:

    I am a direct descendent of Daniel Perrin. My father / grandfather grew up in Highstown NJ. My great grandfather 8x removed was the owner of Perrine farm, now on Monmouth battlefield and his farm used by General George Washington to fight the British. Also most likely the farm was part of the lore of Molly Pitcher in that same battle.

  57. Erica Cartrett says:

    Something feels amiss in my family tree somewhere between Thomas, Solomon, Abraham, Abraham. Can anyone help?

    Me -> Doyce Cartrett Jr. -> Doyce Cartrett Sr. -> Luther L. Cartrett (1898) -> Asa R. Cartrett (1860) -> John Calvin Cartrette (1831) -> Thomas Cartrette (1794) -> Solomon Cartrette (1770) -> Abraham de Carteret (1707) -> Abraham de Carteret (1687) -> Philippe de Carteret (1621) -> Jean de Carteret (1589).

    Also it is family lore that Asa Randle Cartrett was contacted as a living heir for a de Carteret inherence, which he turned down out of pride. Anyone know about an inheritance after 1860?

  58. Christy De Carteret Feit says:

    I have been looking into my husbands and now my sons family name De Carteret Feit. I was told that Henry De Carteret had five daughters and he asked his daughter to carry on his name. She used De carteret and Feit. Do you have any information on Henry De Carteret? I was also told he was banished from the throne?

    I don’t know where else to find more information.

  59. Stef Hare says:


    How does one become a member? My Grandmother is Hazel Catrett and my late Aunt was handling all of the family history however with her passing a lot of the information was lost. I am trying to track back our line from Catrett back to De Carteret. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    • jthomas says:

      Hi Stef,
      The Secretary will contact you through your e-mail address about membership. The Chairman will be informed to help you with your request for help on connecting your Cartrett to De Carteret hopefully.

  60. Kerry Southall says:


    Am trying to trace back my family line, my son is young and asking many questions, i had a family reunion at St Ouens Manour about 20 years ago and my granny was called Violet May De Carteret and her sister was called Mazel De Carteret and he really needed to know the family line he is from. Both my grandmother and her sister died many years ago and I have thought about this for many years, I think their father might have been Raymond Philip De Carteret.

  61. Kelly Edgar says:

    I sent a query last week regarding my possible / probable descendancy from Phillippe De Carteret III. Well …… that appears to be a fantasy of someone. We supposedly descended from Phineas Graves who supposedly had a spouse named Elizabeth Caterteret. It turned out we descend from a Phineas Hull who married Jerusha Hitchcock. They had a daughter named Dorcas Hull b 1685 in York Co; ME. Dorcas Hull m abt 1704 Phillip Cox of London….. they had a son Philip b 1705 in Bridgewater, Somerset Co; New Jersey, Colonial America ….. in close proximity to the Phineas Graves and his wife Elizabeth Carteret.

  62. Colleen Fisher says:

    It’s very interesting to read all about the de Carteret Martin family,
    My maiden name was de Carteret Martin, I am from Cape Town, my father was Peter Eric John de Carteret Martin, his father was named Eric de Carteret Martin who went to Elizabeth College in Guernsey. We went to see the college and the rector was amazing and showed us the ledger where he and his brother were signed into the school. My Dad was very overwhelmed as he did not have the best relationship with his Father Eric.
    Eric was born in Calcutta, he married Phoebe Florence who was my grandmother who was born in Shimla . Then , not sure when, they moved to South Africa.

  63. Katherine Montague says:

    In my search for my ancestors, I came across an Honora De Carteret, who was the daughter of Offray De Carteret, of which there seems to be no knowledge, said to be born before 1702. I am related to Offray and Honora through “Light Horse Harry Lee” and “Matilda Ludlow Lee” through their first born son who was disowned by his father because of a disagreement over a horse. The story that my grandmother told me handed down by her father was that he stole a horse from his father, but the true interpretation of what happened is unknown. I have found it interesting that some of the surnames going back into that lineage have turned up as relatives on my mother’s 23andme profile, so I’m inclined to believe this connection.

  64. Gregg says:

    Can anyone help me with one Carteret George Scott (d 1875), Madras Army 1819-35? I have learned that the De part of the name was dropped when they came to UK because it sounded too French? Does any one have anything to add?

  65. Carina Sydow says:

    Hello everybody, I’m a descendant of Philippe Carteret, born 1647 in France, Burgundy. So I’m searching for a connection between the Carteret’s in Normandy and the Carteret’s in Burgundy. Can anyone help me ?

  66. I am descendent of Joan Bulmer I have just found out I have Philip Carteret in my line which links me to you guys and Diana respectively.

  67. Helen Schofield says:

    Hi. I am researching my late busbands family for my children. Their grandmother told me that her family came from the Channels Islands. I have since discovered a De Carteret link, but would like it confirmed. Her grandfather was William Nicolle b 1833 died 1901 who was married to Mary Ann Roberts, daughter of Richard Robert and Marie De Careteret. I believe the lineage goes back to about the 900’s. Is there somewhere I can check names and dates. The family tree app has a lot on it but at time it is very confusing. There seem to be several of marriages to this family.

  68. Patricia G Carter says:


    I am a Virginia Carter. My Y DNA matches no other Carters in Virginia or in USA. One match in England, Oakleys in New York and Alldays in Virginia. Philip Carteret arrived in New York 1665 and Peter Carteret, the mystery man, in 1666 he was assistant governor of the British Colony of Albemarle, once part of Virginia. He returned to London and never was heard from again. Family lores say they came to America by way of New York and Jamestown, Virginia.
    Has a direct line male of Carteret had a Y DNA test?
    My male Carter is L2 HYPO.


  69. Valerie Bridgman says:

    My Grandmother was a De Carteret and I was born in Jersey, I am in the process of trying to do my family history My Grandfather was a Mauger.
    What I would like to know is anybody connected with these families ever been diagnosed

    Thank you

  71. Jacqueline Leigh says:

    My family is descended from someone who was on the “Philip” with Philip Carteret, arriving initially in Virginia in June, 1665, then moving on to NY and then Elizabethtown, NJ. Does anyone know how I can access a list of all the passengers who traveled on that ship, and anything else about them?

    • jthomas says:

      Hi Jacqueline,
      My suggestion to continue your search for names of people who travelled from England to Virginia in June 1665 is to try the Virginian Museum or their archive department. They might have a passenger list, as it was such an important part of America’s history.
      Please let me know how you get on with the search. Especially if you have a De Carteret link in your family.
      Best Wishes
      Jennifer Thomas (nee De Carteret) Secretary of Le Cercle De Carteret
