Carkeet, Crockett, Crocker, Crockar came from Kirkite, kirk being the Scottish word for church. Captain William Kirkite came to Saco, Maine with Capt. Richard Kirkite, probably his brother, from Devon; then went back to Devon, got his wife, and returned to Saco. Three generations lived in my house, Wm. #1, #2, and #3. In Saco, name was spelled phonetically, Carkeet.

Wm. #2 married Margaret Waddock; died in 1659. His son, Wm. #3 left Saco during the onset of the Indian wars, became 1st mate on Capt. Glanfeld's ship, married his daughter Lydia, 1686, settled in Salem, Massachusetts, became a captain in his own right, with his own ships, sailed out of Salem and Boston to Virginia, where name changed to Crockett. Davy Crockett was born in Virginia, traveled to Texas.
