In addition to the English and German CARROWs, there is also a French branch with the same surname. These Carrows are found often in French-American settlements such as Detroit and especially around Ste. Genevieve, Missouri.

In this case, the name Carrow is a derivative of the name CARON or CARRON, early settlers of Nouvelle France (Canada) and then migrating to other French settlements down the St. Lawrence River and the Mississippi.

There are a few of this branch in my online gedcom at .
