  • James Emott .... He had married, 1682, or 3, Mary Lawrence, of this town, 'the step-daughter of Governor Carteret, who was born 1665, and was about 16 years old, when, at her mother's marriage, in 1681, she came with her six brothers and sisters to reside here.'

  • 'RICHARD TOWNLEY took up his abode her as early as 1684. He was the 8th son of Nicholas Townley, of Littleton, Eng., and of Joanna White .... before he had made himself so agreeable to Mrs. Gov. Carteret, as to receive herself and fortune, in 1685, by marriage. He had, probably, been married in early life ; and Mary Townley, who married Mrs. Carteret's eldest son, Joseph Lawrence, is thought to have been his daughter. It is not certain, but quite likely, that his daughter, Mrs. Shackmaple, was also, by a former marriage. As Mrs. Carteret's first marriage took place in 1664, she must have been about 40 years of age, at the time of her third marriage.
