Carr Genealogy & History

Carr family history may originate in England, Scotland, or Ireland, though there are multiple possibilities for the origin of the name. In England, it may come from the Old Norse word kjarr meaning "swamp" and may have originally referred to someone who lived near or in swampland. There are at least three accounts of the Irish derivation, including a form of the Gaelic "O'Carra" meaning spear. In Scotland, the spelling is typically Kerr. Famous people with Carr genealogy include legendary American college basketball player Austin Carr and American Civil War Union General Joseph Bradford Carr.
