    My grandfather was a de Carterette on my mom’s side. She told me about Sir George & Philip. But I would like find more about his family down to them!

    Even though Sark is a small island the De Carterett’s have moved around the globe (a lot). Even though I have been doing my family tree for a while this branch of the family is proving to be difficult. Having said this they originate from Normanby, then move onto Jersey, then Sark and then Guernsey and around the Globe. The spelling of the name changes throughout the centuries making them harder to find. For the main line go to http://www.theislandwiki.org, although, some of the information on this site differs from the millennium files (also worth looking at) it appears to be mainly accurate and some of the differences from the millennium files make more sense. Good luck

  3. It would be excellent news for me to have more concrete evidence of my relationship to Elizabeth Carteret who was b 23 Nov 1653. It is reputed she married Phineas Graves before 1685. They were said to be from London, England but Phineas Graves is reportedly in the Colony of New Jersey in 1700 when he died. I descend from their daughter Dorcas who married Philip Cox in 1703 in London, England. Any corroboration would be greatly appreciated. Elizabeth Carteret is said to be a daughter of Phillippe De Carteret III & his wife Anne Dumaresque. Documenting Elizabeth as the spouse of Phineas Graves and mother of Dorcas Graves is important. Many thanks.

      Dear Kelly,
      Thank you for sending a comment on your ancestor. Do you think Elizabeth and Phineas married in London? They maybe travelled over to USA.
      The De Carteret family does have connections with New Jersey, as Philip De Carteret colonised that part of America, hence the New Jersey, as he came from the Island of Jersey, Channel Islands. Perhaps your Phineas was part of the colonisers?
      Will be e-mailing you with details of our next reunion 2019.
