Charles Carter of Chesterfield County, Virginia is said to be originally of Essex County, VA, born in 1757; however, I suspect that there may have been a transposition in the deposition that made this claim, and in fact he was from Sussex County, Virginia.
On the 1791 tax list from Chesterfield County, Charles Carter is shown to be the guardian of the following minors: 1. John Scott 2. Thoms Harris 3. Robert Brown 4. Theodorick Bland
I have identified Thomas Harris as the son of Thomas Harris and Polly Carter. Their marriage record here:
1 September 1786. Thomas Harris and Polly Carter, dau. of John Carter who consents. This is consent only. Married 7 September by Rev. William Webber, Baptist. p. 24
I am trying to figure out the relationship between the stated Polly Carter and her father John Carter to Charles.
The above mentioned Theodorocik Bland was born in 1776 in Dinwiddie County, VA, the son of Theodorick Bland and Sarah Fitzhugh, who were married in 1772 in Stafford County. Theodorick became a judge and relocated to Baltimore, Maryland. Still looking for a Carter connection here.
I have not identified Robert Brown or John Scott yet. Perhaps John Scott is related to Mary Scott who married William Carter in Lunenburg Co., VA in 1779.
