Seeking information on the Roger Carroll ( Carrell ) who left a Will in Henrico/Goochland County, Virginia in 1727. Goochland County, Virginia was founded in 1728 from Henrico.

In his Will he referenced his wife Elizabeth and four sons:

- William Carroll
- John Carroll
- Roger Carroll
- Stewart Carroll

Elizabeth may or may not have been the mother of his children.

In his Will, Roger Carroll also referenced a "son" Thomas Carter. This "son" was probably his son-in-law. This Thomas Carter was probably Thomas Carter, Junior (a son of Thomas Carter, Senior who left a Will in Goochland County, Virginia in 1738).

In his own Will written 1760, Thomas Carter, Junior referenced his wife Mary. This Mary may or may not have been the mother of his children and she may or may not have been a daughter of Roger Carroll.

Some researchers have considered that the daughter of Roger Carroll was the Penele ( ?? Penelope ) who was referenced by Thomas Carter, Senior as his wife in his 1738 Will but I don't think this is correct.

Thomas Carter, Junior named a son Baynes "Banes" Carter. I'm wondering if the Baynes name could have come from his wife's Carroll family.

There is also this information:

"On 1 May 1706 a patent for 570 acres of land in Henrico County was granted to Richard Cock, Junior. Two of the head rights mentioned in this patent were Roger Carrell and Hanna Carrell."

I don't know how Hanna ( ?? Hannah ) Carrell was related to Roger Carrell.

Roger Carroll may have been an ancestor of the William Carroll who married Nancy Strong in Goochland County, Virginia in 1781. It has been reported that William & Nancy had the following children born in Goochland County, Virginia:

- Polly Carroll
- Jesse Carroll
- Nancy Carroll

I hope there is a Carroll family researcher out there who can help answer some of these mysteries.
