Re: Where did Carrow/Karrow originate?

We are, so far as I can tell, the only remaining English members of the Carrow family. My grandfather was Richard (Dick) Carrow. He had two brothers: Anthony who was killed in a motorcyle accident before the First World War, and John, who married but never had children. Dick had only one son, my father, David (b 210422), and he had me and my sister, Julia (now Holroyd). I have 2 boys (Anthony and Hugh) and 2 girls (Rozel and Eloise). One of our known North American family connections was Catherine Carrow, who lived in Texas. She died several years ago without offspring. When in Calgary, Alberta, from 1983-86 I got in touch with a John(?) Carrow living in the city, but he thought his family had a French backgound (Carreau) and I heard no more. I have a family tree (temporarily mislaid!) which goes back to 18th century and indicates at least one Carrow emigrating to the US, which may account for the spread of some of the family there. I am curious about the Coat of Arms as there is nothing in the family tree to suggest that degree of importance! I know of several Carrow place-names; most are in the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland. Norwich City Football Club is located in Carrow Road, Norwich, Norfolk. I have no knowledge of the background to these names, and there is no obvious link to any of my forebears. Regards, R.
