Note: Benjamin Carr died in 1653 leaving his four sons to live with relatives. The two older boys, Robert and Caleb were sent to Plymouth Colony on the "Elizabeth Ann" on May 9, 1635, to live with their Uncle William and Aunt Susan (Rothchild) Carr. William and Susan and their small baby had sailed to America in 1621 on the "Fortune" which was commanded by Capt. Roger Williams. They stayed in Plymouth Colony until June 1622, then with only an Indian as companion and a compass for a guide, they set out on foot in a SW direction through a trackless wilderness. After a journey of 48 days, they came to what is now Mount Hope Bay, where they built their cabin about where Bristol, Rhode Island is located now. (Quoted from Watson's "The House of Carr",1926)
