In Reply to: Re: Confirmation sought re:Thomas Carrier by Neal Carrier of 1112

As far as I have determined, this tradtion is factual. Even circumstantial evidence supports this. Apparently when Charles II assumed the throne he put a price on the head of everyone who had anything to do with his brother's death. Thomas Morgan Carrier was tall enough to be quite intimidating (well over 6 feet tall) and strong enough to be an axeman as well. To top it all off his immigration dates are consistent with flight from the imposed sentence of death for those involved in Charles I beheading. I am still trying to get further confirmation from the museum at the Tower of London.
