About Norris Carter

Norris and his family are mentioned in The Decendents of CAPT Thomas Carter:

Norris Carter, the younger of the three sons of Peter and Judith Carter of Fauquier, who settled on Clinch, seems to have gone there at a later date than his brothers Thomas and Joseph. He seems to have purchased a farm in Rye Cove, but the Washington records, which are not complete, fail to show record of same. In 1793 he had a small grant of land and in 1805 he purchased a part of a large tract that had been granted to his cousin, John Carter, in 1783. Norris Carter, born Nov. 8, 1748, was married about 1770-'71 to Agnes Allen, a half-sister of his brother Joseph Carter's wife. He made his will June 7, 1816, which was probated Aug. 13, 1816; in which he gave to his wife, Agnes Carter, his entire estate, both real and personal, for the remainder of her life, "it being my intention to give my said wife a fund sufficient for her comfortable maintenance during life out of its increase or profits, which I intend she shall use for that purpose." After death of his wife he desired that his granddaughter Jemima Carter, eldest daughter of his daughter Molly, should have "all my lands, buildings and household furniture lying below the big branch running through the plantation where I now live." And son henry to have the remainder of the plantation.
