    Notes 
    • THE STORY OF CAPTAIN JOHN CARMAN & THE TURKISH PIRATES: It is believed John was the Captain of the ship related in the following story recorded by John Winthrop on July 5, 1643: "Here arrived one Mr. Carman, master of the ship called (unreadable) of 180 tons. He went from New Haven in (December) last, laden with clapboards for the Canaries, being earnestly commended to the Lord's protection by the church there.

      At the island of Palma, he was set upon by a Turkish pirate of 300 tons and 26 pieces of ordnance and 200 men. He fought with her three hours, having but 20 men and but 7 pieces of ordinance that he could use, and his muskets were unservicable with rust. The Turk lay across his hawse, so as he was forced to shoot through his own hoodings, and by these shot killed many Turks. Then the Turk lay by his side and boarded him with near 100 men, and cut all his ropes, etc., but his shot having killed the captain of the Turkish ship and broken his tiller, the Turk took in his own ensign and fell off from him, but in such haste as he left about 50 of his men aboard him, then the master and some of his men came up and fought with those 50 hand to hand, and slew so many of them as the rest leaped overboard. The master had many wounds on his head and body, and divers of his men were wounded, yet but one slain; so with much difficulty he got to the island (being in view thereof), where he was very courteously entertained and supplied with whatsoever he wanted.
    • JOHN CARMAN, the Puritan Father Ancestor of Plymouth Colony, who in 1631 came in the ship "Lyon"and was of Lynn, where in 1632 he had by wife Florence (daughter of Rev. Robert Fordham) a son John, and in 1634 a daughter Abigail. Next of Wethersfield, colony of Connecticut, and in 1641 one of the original patentees of Stamford, Connecticut, and in 1643, with his father-in-law, the committee who negotiated a purchase of about 20,000 acres of land on Long Island, extending from Long Island Sound to the Atlantic Ocean, of the Rockaway and Merrick tribes of Indians. In 1644 this purchase was confirmed to himself (John Carman) and six other Englishmen. Of these, one was the noted Captain John Seaman, who in 1641 was co-patentee of Stamford.

      In 1644 John Carman was one of the five first families that settled on this patent - all but one of the families being of or from Hemel Hempstead, England (county of Hereford), and the settlement was named Hempstead (originally New Hempstead), and the first child born in the infant settlement was Caleb, son of John and Florence Carman.

      His son John (II), born in Lynn, 1632, married Hannah, daughter of Captain John Seaman.

      His brother Caleb, the first born in Hempstead, married another daughter of Captain John Seaman.

      He had John (III), born in Hempstead, 1656-7, who by wife Mary, daughter of Simon and Mary Cooper, had William (IV), born in Jamaica, Long Island, in 1680, who among others had Elijah (V), born in Jamaica, in 1704-5, who by wife Elizabeth Bloodgood, born in Jamaica, 1708, had Elijah (VI), born in Jamaica, about 1749. Removed to Monmouth county, New Jersey, where he married (Marcy or Mary Allen ?), born 1753.

      He died 1804, and his wife in 1831.

      He and his brothers Nathaniel, Daniel and Thomas served in the historic fighting First Battalion of Monmouth county, taking part in three of the great battles (Monmouth, Princeton, and Trenton) and a score of minor ones, and this Elijah (VI) is the Revolutionary ancestor of Mr. Louis E. Carman, now a resident of Nutley, New Jersey. Elijah Carman (father of Elijah VI), son of William (IV), took part in the colonial war (the French and Indian war), 1758.
