Early Carawan Records

in the Old World & in the New World


"The Complete Book of Emigrants in Bondage, 1614-1775" by Peter Wilson Coldham, page 138 and indexes: Fact:

February 1700:

CARAWIN, William - Reprieved for transportation.

From Leichestershire [ England ? ].

This says to me that some gentleman from Leichestershire was released on condition that he would go to The Colonies. The Colonies is a very broad term and there is no proof that William ever got to the ship that was to transport him. Kitty Humphries - Contributed, February, 1999.

Richard CARRAVAN either married or took out bonds to marry Eliza WILLIAMS,
