Origins of surname

This is an occupational surname, probably derived from the Celtic word cairt, meaning 'cart'. It probably reached English via the Norman French caretier, which survives as Cartier in modern French surnames, but is not found in Jersey.

Early records

Carter goes back to 1668 in Jersey church records, and although it is not possible to trace a direct line from the early 18th century records to this day, it is possible that the early family has survived. There have, of course, been other Carter immigrants over the course of time.
