An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright 2000 - 2016


The lineage of the name Caraway begins with the Anglo-Saxon tribes in Britain. It is a result of when they lived on a road near a field or piece of land that was triangular in shape. Further research revealed that the name is derived from the Old English words gara, meaning "triangular piece of land," and weg, meaning "path" or "road."

Caraway Early Origins



The surname Caraway was first found in Sussex where they held a family seat from very ancient times, some say well before the Norman Conquest and the arrival of Duke William at Hastings in 1066 A.D.

The Great Migration



To escape the unstable social climate in England of this time, many families boarded ships for the New World with the hope of finding land, opportunity, and greater religious and political freedom. Although the voyages were expensive, crowded, and difficult, those families that arrived often found greater opportunities and freedoms than they could have experienced at home. Many of those families went on to make significant contributions to the rapidly developing colonies in which they settled. Early North American records indicate many people bearing the name Caraway were among those contributors: Joan Carroway and her husband John, who settled in Virginia in 1635; Roger Carroway settled in Nevis in 1654; along with his brother William; Jeremiah Garroway settled in Annapolis Maryland in 1723.
