Edward Carleton, our immigrant ancestor, son of Walter Carleton, was born in Hornsea, and baptized at Beeford, Yorkshire East Riding, 20 Oct. 1610. His wife, Ellen Newton, daughter of Launcelot and Mary (Lee) Newton, was baptized at Hedon, Yorkshire, 24 Feb. 1614. They were married at St. Martin, Micklegate, York, 3 Nov. 1636. Their first son, John, was probably born in 1637, but no record of his baptism has been found. On or about 9 April,1638, they disposed of Ellen’s ancestral property, and soon after embarked with the party of Rev. Ezekiel Rogers of Rowley, probably from Hull, in the ship “John of London”, which arrived in Salem or Boston in the autumn of 1638. The next spring, the company began the settlement of Rowley, near Newburyport, and there the Carletons’ second son, Edward was the first recorded birth, 28 Oct. 1639.
Edward Carleton was a man of some importance in the Rowley settlement, holding various offices. He returned to England about 1649, and his wife and children later. No further record of the parents or of the three younger children has been found, and it is supposed that they remained and died in England. John, the eldest son, was sent back to New England with a letter of attorney, by which he received a portion of his father’s estate. From him are descended all of our Carleton family in America.
