    • A HISTORY OF THE CARROLL FAMILY

      (As told by Thomas Moulton Carroll, son of Willard Carroll, and written by Garda Moulton.)

      BIOGRAPHY: James O'Carroll, who was known as Capt. James O'Carroll, was the first member of the Carroll family of which we have any record. He was born about 1763 in Armagh, Armagh County, Ireland. Tradition says he had property in Tyrone County, Ireland, when he was banished from Ireland and his property confiscated.

      He then came to Newfoundland where he acquired property consisting of shipping interests. Here he was hired by an English nobleman to marry Margaret Pottle, who was to have a child out of wedlock. Her son was known as Terrance O'Carroll. Patrick O'Carroll, born 25 April 1789 at St. Johns, Newfoundland, was the only son of James O'Carroll and Margaret Pottle.

      BIOGRAPHY: James O'Carroll was later banished from Newfoundland, and the funds of his property was placed to the credit of his heirs in the Bank of England.* We have no further record of James O'Carroll, and are in doubt as to whether he died or he and Margaret were divorced.

      BIOGRAPHY: Margaret Pottle then married Patrick Murphy, who also had a son named Patrick Murphy. This son was older than Margaret's son, Patrick O'Carroll. The two Patrick Murphys financed young Patrick O'Carroll to go back to England to get his inheritance. Upon arriving in England, it seems he was kept drunk by someone whose business it was to see that he didn't get his inheritance, and he failed to accomplish anything.
