    Particularly detailed baptism records for three of their granddaughters confirm that Elizabeth is the daughter of "George Carr, farmer, of Hexhamshire, and his wife Mary late Armstrong". In the 1805 baptism, the other grandfather is described as "late" but George Carr is not, suggesting that he may have been still alive in 1805.
