My wife's maiden name is Carrington. We have a fairly extensive history of the Carrington surname. A Hamo de Carentan (from Normandy) came to England with William the Conqueror in 1066 - Battle of Hastings & all that. Carentan is still there in Normandy - we haven't been there yet. The Carringtons spread themselves pretty widely in the days of the British Empire. I am currently following up the Carrington connection with Barbados,
