Notes for James CARRELL
Profile of his descendent Ezra Patterson Carrell relates the following:
James CARRELL, the pioneer ancestor of the family, settled in Bucks county about 1700 and possibly came from Rhode Island in 1683 with Rev. Thomas Dungan, whose daughter Sarah he married. Tradition, however, relates that he was a weaver, and had a mill or loom, in Philadelphia, where he wove linen and linsey-woolsey; some products of his loom remaining in the family until recently. He purchased one hundred acres of land in Southampton in 1704 and lived thereon until his death about 1730. In 1711 he purchased of his brothers-in-law, Thomas and Clement DUNGAN, a tract of land in Warminster which is still the property of his descendants, descending from father to son down to the present owner, Isaac CARRELL. The children of Thomas and Sarah (DUNGAN) CARRELL were six in number; James, the eldest son; Benjamin, who died in 1733; Elizabeth, who married Samuel GILBERT, of Warminster; Sarah, who married Silas McCARTY; and Lydia, who married Robert TOMPKINS, of Warminster, later of Warrington, Bucks county; and another daughter of whom we have no record. In 1732 the other heirs of James CARRELL conveyed the homestead in Southampton to the eldest son James and in 1734 he also purchased the Northampton homestead on which he settled and lived until his death in 1750, conveying the Southampton homestead on his purchase of the Northampton farm. The family were of Scotch-Irish Presbyterian stock, and are supposed to have emigrated from Scotland or Ireland in the seventeenth century. Tradition relates that James CARRELL, Sr., was imprisoned in Londonderry during that memorable siege of one hundred and five days, and soon after came to America. [ [777]] Ezra Patterson Carrell in his book says that this tradition was the story of his grandfather Joseph, born 1792, as a story told about his great-grandfather.
