______________________________

Two powerful and influential families in colonial Virginia, the Harrison family and the Carter family, were united when Harrison married Anne Carter, the daughter of Robert "King" Carter. The family also forged ties to the Randolph family as four of his children married four grandchildren of William Randolph I.

Anne Carter was born  1702 in Corotoman, Lancaster, Virginia and died 1743 in Berkeley, Charles City, Virginia

  • Parents: Robert King Carter b: 1663 in Corotoman, Lancaster, Virginia, USA & Elizabeth Landon b: 17 MAY 1683 in Grednal, Herefordshire, England

Married

  1. 1722 to Benjamin Harrison, IV of "The Landing.". He was the son of Benjamin HARRISON III &  Elizabeth BURWELL. (William Byrd II had described Anne as "a very agreeable girl". As part of a dowry from Robert Carter, Harrison managed and received profits from land that was technically owned by his father-in-law. This land was entailed by Carter to Harrison's son, Carter Henry Harrison. Using bricks fired on the Berkeley plantation, Harrison built a Georgian-style three-story brick mansion on a hill overlooking the James River in 1726.) (references are in the Wikipedia article.)

Harrison and his wife had eleven children:[1]

  1. Elizabeth Harrison (born ~1723)[1] married Peyton Randolph, the son of Sir John Randolph, the grandson of William Randolph I, and the first President of the Continental Congress.[2]
  2. Anne Harrison (born ~1724)[1] married William Randolph III, the son of William Randolph II and the grandson of William Randolph I, and had five children.[2][12]
  3. Benjamin Harrison V (born ~1726)[1] married Elizabeth Bassett.[2] His third son was William Henry Harrison, the ninth President of the United States.[3] His descendants include Congressman John Scott Harrison and Benjamin Harrison, the 23rd President of the United States.[2]
  4. Lucy Harrison (born ~1728)[1] married Edward Randolph Jr., the son of Edward Randolph Sr. and the grandson of William Randolph I, and the couple had two children.[1]
  5. Hannah Harrison (born ~1730 – ~1745)[1]
  6. Carter Henry Harrison I (born ~1732)[1] married Susannah Randolph, the daughter of Isham Randolph and the grand-daughter of William Randolph I, and had six children.[12] His descendants include two mayors of Chicago: Carter Henry Harrison III and his son Carter Henry Harrison IV.[13]
  7. Henry Harrison (~1734 – ~1736) who died in infancy.[1]
  8. Henry Harrison (born ~1736)[1]
  9. Robert Harrison (born ~1738)[1]
  10. Charles Harrison (b. ~1740 – d. 1793) who was colonel of the 1st Continental Artillery Regiment.[1][14]
  11. Nathaniel Harrison (born September 30, 1742)[1]

Notes

  1. According to records at the museum adjacent to Historic Christ Church in Lancaster County, Virginia, Anne Carter was the first child born to Robert "King" Carter and his second wife, the former Mrs. Betty Landon Willis (a 17-year-old widow when she married Carter). His first wife, Judith Armistead, was the mother of one son and several daughters, two of whom predeceased her and whose remains are entombed with her in the church yard. Judith died in 1699.
