Robert Carver, the father of John Carver Sr., is the Pilgrim progenitor of the Carver Family of Granby. He was born in England in 1594. came to Marshfield in Plymouth Colony as early as 1638, when he purchased land in Marshfield and on 03-Sep-1638 he was listed as a proprietor there. His occupation is gleaned from a 1640 land record, in which Edmond Hawes sold to Robert Carver, sawyer, of Duxbury, ten acres of upland, "with all his labours in and aboute the same, the consideration being 2000 feet of sawn boards". Robert was in the train band and He appears on the list of those able to bear arms in 1643. He was admitted a Freeman of the colony on 06-Jun-1644. He also served as a juryman and held various town offices. He died in April of 1680, being aged 85 years. He out lived his wife by 22 years. While many print sources state he was brother, or nephew to, Gov. John Carver, there is no evidence to support this.
