Where did the Scottish Carr family come from? What is the Scottish coat of arms/family crest? When did the Carr family first arrive in the United States? Where did the various branches of the family go? What is the history of the family name?

The frequent translations of surnames from and into Gaelic, accounts for the multitude of spelling variations found in Scottish surnames. Furthermore, the spelling of surnames was rarely consistent because medieval scribes and church officials recorded names as they sounded, rather than adhering to any specific spelling rules. The different versions of a surname, such as the inclusion of the patronymic prefix "Mac", frequently indicated a religious or clan affiliation, or even a division of the family. Moreover, a large number of foreign names were brought into Scotland, accelerating accentuating the alterations to various surnames. The name Carr has also been spelled Kerr, Car, Carr, Ker, Cearr (Gaelic) and many more.

First found in Lancashire where they were seated from very early times and were granted lands by Duke William of Normandy, their liege Lord, for their distinguished assistance at the Battle of Hastings in 1066 A.D.

Some of the first North American settlers with Carr name or one of its variants: William Ker, who settled in New Hampshire in 1718; David Kerr arrived in Jamaica in 1775; John Carr settled in Virginia in 1716; Alexander, Andrew, Edward, Frank, Henry, Horace, Hugh, James, John, Joseph, Mathew, Robert, Samuel, Thomas and William Kerr, all arrived in Philadelphia between 1800 and 1860.

Motto Translated: Late but in earnest.
