    According to Billy Neil Carr, his uncle Charlie wrote a book on Amasa
    Carr (1830), showing his descendants and mentioning what he knew of
    Amasa's ancestors. Quoting Charlie's book, the first three
    generations were based on "the framed 'Pedigree of Governor Caleb
    Carr' that hangs on the wall of the living room in the old Carr
    Homestead in Jamestown, RI."

    Sir William Carr was born in Scotland on 16 May 1542. He married Mary
    Ann Clifford Carr, sister of Lord Somerset. Sir William changed the
    name Kerr, first to Kelso then to Carr.

    Sir William was the son of Sir John Kerr and Katherine, daughter of
    Sir Andrew Kerr of Cesford. Sir John reportedly rescued Mary Queen of
    Scots in the incursion against Scotland. Sir John was born 17 June
    1500 and died 1562.

    Sir John was the son of Lord Andrew Kerr, born in Scotland in 1450.
    He married Janet, daughter of Lord Patrick Hume.
