CARROTT OF SOUTHAMPTON. My name is Elizabeth Caroline Ann Burnett. I was adopted By Mr Geoff Graham Baird and Mrs Molley Josephine Baird (Formally Millard) My pre adoption name was Caroline Ann Carrott, i was born in Southampton on 10th March 1963... I am hoping to find members of the Carrott family of southampton, as believe i have brothers and possibly sisters that i would dearly love to get in contact with... Both My adopted parents have passed away now and now feel its time to retrace my family blood line, if there is anyone out there that would possibly know of someone with the surname Carrott please mention this request to them to see if they know anything about me... and encourage them to get in touch with me... I have 3 children of my own now too, and they would also love to know more about there mums background... Thank you for your kind help.. liz Burnett

Hi Caroline

I've only just come across your message. I know of no Carrotts in Southampton from my family line. As far as I can trace back we come from Lincolnshire. Although there's a good sprinkling all over now. I've just been in touch with a Ian Carrott in West Sussex where there may be a connection. I'll let you know how I get on.

As this thread is dated 2003 then I think it is unlikely that the poster will be checking back on it.

Send a message and if they have the same email addy then they will get notification of your message

Hello Daryl and welcome to the community boards.

If you are looking for the name Carrott on this site, it may be worthwhile putting the names you are researching into the Search Trees box above to see if anyone has them in their tree.

If you find a connection, you can contact the tree owner.

Also, if you would like help with your research, then why not start a thread of your own? Take a look at the Help Clinic - above left - for further advice.
