The Anglo-Saxon name Carlass comes from its first bearer, who was a person who was believed to be free from care or unconcerned. The nickname is derived from the Old English word carleas, which referred to the personal characteristics of the bearer.

Early Origins of the Carlass family


The surname Carlass was first found in Gloucestershire, but some of the family were found in Lancashire at Welsh Whittle in early times. "In that of Edward III., Sir William Careles held the manor, so called, of Walshwittell. " [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

Migration of the Carlass family to the New World and Oceana


Thousands of English families in this era began to emigrate the New World in search of land and freedom from religious and political persecution. Although the passage was expensive and the ships were dark, crowded, and unsafe, those who made the voyage safely were rewarded with opportunities unavailable to them in their homeland. Research into passenger and immigration lists has revealed some of the very first Carlasss to arrive in North America: Andrew Carelesse, who settled in Virginia in 1650; Joane Carelesse, who arrived in Virginia in 1653; Thomas Careless, who arrived in Virginia in 1737.
