This page is still being researched. It has NOT yet been launched formally into the Database but is shown here TEMPORARILY (albeit for an uncertain length of time pending further research), partly to record connections that we fear we might otherwise lose sight of and partly in the hope that one or more visitors to the site will contribute information that will enable us to develop our information on the families covered in this page to a standard that would support release of a dedicated page in the Database.

This section first uploaded on 10.10.07. It was partly reviewed on 16.03.17 when a few connections that had previously been shown below were moved to Thursby02.

James Carrier of Helpston
m. Elizabeth Parker (dau of Thomas Parker of Browsholme, sister of Janet)
1. Bridget Carrier
  m. William Parker of Park Hall
It appears that the Carriers of Helpston (Northamptonshire) and those of Wirksworth (Derbyshire) were closely connected, the undermentioned Janet being found described in a web site as heiress of both places.
Richard Carrier of Wirksworth (minister of Wirksworth)
m. (08.1612/3) Janet Parker (dau of Thomas Parker of Browsholme, sister of Elizabeth)
1. Robert Carrier of Wirksworth said by some to have in fact been Charles so that Janet & Isabella were sisters
  m. Elizabeth
  A. Janet Carrier (23.08.1733, 2nd dau/heir)
  m. (23.04.1691) Thomas Parker, 1st Earl of Macclesfield (b 23.07.1667, d 28.04.1732)
  TCP (Macclesfield) suggests that Janet's great-grandfather, Thomas Parker of Browsholme, was the Thomas who was older brother of George Parker of Park Hall, grandfather of 1st Earl of Macclesfield, making her 2nd cousin of her husband. However, that appears to be wrong as the Parkers of Browsholme were of a different family.
2. Charles Carrier of Wirksworth possibly fits here
  A. Isabella Carrier (co-heir)
  Collins (1741, Anson (in supplement)) identifies William's wife as Elizabeth, dau of _ Carrier of Wirkworth (sic) and sister of the Countess of Macclesfield. However, TCP (Anson) supports BP1934 (Lichfield) in identifying her as Isabella, daughter of Charles.
  m. William Anson of Shugborough (b c1656, d 08.1720)
3. Isabella Carrier probably of this generation
  m. (20.09.1653) John Davenport of Woodford
