Susanna Carver, and her twin sister Elizabeth, were baptized at Filby, Norfolk, England on October 15, 1618, daughter of Richard and Margaret (Skurrie) Carver. Her mother Margaret was buried in November, 1618, shortly after their births.[1]

Richard Carvear, of Skratby, c. Suffolk, husbandman aged 60 years
Grace, his wife, aged 40 years
Elizabeth, aged 18 years
Susanna, aged 18 years, being twins[2]

Removing daughter Susanna as there is no record for her. Son Joseph is speculated but not proven. See note on profile.

Barstow-212 and Carver-1636 appear to represent the same person because: Trying this again. Carver is correct LNAB. see narrative in Carver-1626 (Barstow was husband of her step mother...). Retain data from Carver-1626.

There is no evidence for a daughter Susanna Perry, although her son Henry married Susanna (___). See Carver-1636

Barstow-212 is shown to be step daughter of Barstow - who was removed as her father, real LNAB Carver. No dob, just her baptism date and location:

baptized at Filby, Norfolk on October 15, 1618

Barstow-212 and Carver-1636 are not ready to be merged because: Date and place of birth need to be resolved.

Carver-2147 and Carver-1636 appear to represent the same person because: Please merge Carver-2147 INTO lower number Carver-1636. Susan, wife of William Perry, has more than one duplicate, trying to get them all in one profile. Thank You

Barstow-212 and Carver-1636 appear to represent the same person because: The LNAB of William Perry's wife should be Carver. See the notes on the profile. Barstow was her step-father. Please merge Susan Barstow-212 INTO Carver-1636. Thanks.
