John Carter, Vinter of London d 1730

Thomas Carter of Isle of Wight R1b - 04, Thomas Carter of Barford R1b - 02 and John Carter of Corotoman R1b - 32 are not closely related. Some have tried to tie one or more of these families to John Carter, the Vinter of London d 1730. Some of this is based on the assumptions these families are related with all the attached cousin and/or uncle speculation. If you accept this notion without considering scientific Y-DNA evidence you are already in a sand trap on your family genealogy.

In reference to this particular page below:

Robert “King” Carter and his father John Carter of Corotoman are not related to Thomas Carter of Isle of Wight per Y-DNA evidence. The connection of the two families in the literature are based on the assumption these families are related. Both families CANNOT be descended from John Carter, Vinter of London died 1730.

See Carter Lineage Groups R1b - 02, R1b – 04, and R1b – 32 in the Carter DNA project.
