    • From: http://www.geneajourney.com/carver.html

      Robert Carver was born in England in 1594 and came to Marshfield in Plymouth Colony as early as 1638, where on 3 Sep he was listed as a proprietor there. He appears on the list of those able to bear arms in 1643, and was admitted a freeman 7 Jun 1648. He also served as a juryman and held various town offices. 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". He died in April of 1680, being aged 85 years. While many print sources state he was brother, or nephew to, Gov. John Carver, there is no evidence to support this

      From:  - NEHGR Vol 88, p 216

      "No evidence that Robert Carver of Marshfield was a brother of Govenor Carver has ever been found, and the fact that he was 30 years younger than the Govenor makes this extremely improbable.  He may have been, however, a somewhat more distant relative of the Govenor, possibly a nephew."

      "There is no evidence of how and when he came to America" [5]
