biographical notes

From Greene, J. P., & the Dictionary of Virginia Biography. Landon Carter (1710 1778). (2013, August 15). In Encyclopedia Virginia. Retrieved from http://www.EncyclopediaVirginia.org/Carter_Landon_1710-1778.

In 1732 Carter married Elizabeth Wormeley, a member of a Virginia family almost as wealthy and as well connected as his own. They had three sons and one daughter before her death in January 1740. Carter's father died in 1732 and left him a very large estate, much of it in Richmond County. Carter settled there during the winter of 1733 1734 and spent the remainder of his life as a successful plantation owner, improving his estate and establishing himself as one of the county's leading men. On September 22, 1742, he married Maria Byrd, the fifteen-year-old daughter of the councillor and writer William Byrd II. They had one daughter. Carter's second wife died in November 1745. Early in 1747 he married a neighbor, Elizabeth Beale. They had five daughters, two of whom survived childhood, before she died late in the 1750s. Each marriage increased Carter's landholdings.
