The surname is topograghic in origin and is derived from the Old Norse word kjarr which eventually became kerr. The Old English translation is brushwood or wet ground. This surname was given to a person who resided near these physical features.

Caré Spelling Variations



The English language only became standardized in the last few centuries; therefore, spelling variations are common among early Anglo-Saxon names. As the form of the English language changed, even the spelling of literate people's names evolved. Caré has been recorded under many different variations, including Care, Kare, Carre, Karre and others.

The Great Migration



For many English families, the political and religious disarray that shrouded England made the far away New World an attractive prospect. On cramped disease-ridden ships, thousands migrated to those British colonies that would eventually become Canada and the United States. Those hardy settlers that survived the journey often went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations in which they landed. Analysis of immigration records indicates that some of the first North American immigrants bore the name Caré or a variant listed above:
