When the ancestors of the Carteraye family emigrated to England following the Norman Conquest in 1066 they brought their family name with them. They lived in Normandy, where they were the seigneurs of Carteret, near Barneville, in the arrondissement of Valognes. They lived there before the Norman Conquest of England in the 11th century.

Carteraye Early Origins



The surname Carteraye was first found in Normandy, where this distinguished family held a family seat in the arrondisement of Valognes from ancient times. Some of the family were found on Sark (or Serk) a small island about 6 miles from Guernsey. "In 1565, Queen Elizabeth granted it in fee-farm, by letters-patent under the great seal, to Hilary de Carteret, Esq., by the twentieth part of a knight's fee." [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

Carteraye Spelling Variations



The English language only became standardized in the last few centuries. For that reason, spelling variations are common among many Anglo-Norman names. The shape of the English language was frequently changed with the introduction of elements of Norman French, Latin, and other European languages; even the spelling of literate people's names were subsequently modified. Carteraye has been recorded under many different variations, including Carteret, Cartrett, Carteraye, Cartaret and many more.

The Great Migration

The Great Migration



To escape the uncertainty of the political and religious uncertainty found in England, many English families boarded ships at great expense to sail for the colonies held by Britain. The passages were expensive, though, and the boats were unsafe, overcrowded, and ridden with disease. Those who were hardy and lucky enough to make the passage intact were rewarded with land, opportunity, and social environment less prone to religious and political persecution. Many of these families went on to be important contributors to the young nations of Canada and the United States where they settled. Carterayes were some of the first of the immigrants to arrive in North America: James Carteret, who came to Carolina in 1622; George Carteret, who settled in Canada in 1643; Peter Carteret, who arrived in Carolina sometime between 1650 and 1699.
