A family with aristocratic roots embedded deep in the ancient soil of Ireland, the Carrolls were for centuries at the forefront of key events in the rich and bloodied tapestry of the nation’s history.
Proud defenders of their heritage and beliefs in the face of aggression, they truly lived up to their family motto of ‘Strong in faith and war.’
In more contemporary times and on the stage, Leo G. Carrol was the British-born star of Alfred Hitchcock movies that include Rebecca and North by Northwest; he is probably best known, however, for his role in the The Man from U.N.C.L.E. television series that ran from 1964 to 1968.
In the world of literature, Charles Lutwidge Dodgson, born in 1832, is better known by his pen name of Lewis Carroll, author of the children’s favourites Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass.
The stirring and inspiring story of the Carrolls is recounted here.


Carroll Clan Mini-Book Excerpt

One Carroll who literally made his mark on American history was the grandly named Charles Carroll ofCarrollton – as one of the signatories to the hallowed

Declaration of Independence of 1776.

The only Catholic to sign the declaration and one of the richest men in America at the time, Carroll, born in 1737 at Annapolis, Maryland, was a politician and lawyer and a delegate to the Continental Congress.

His grandfather, known as Charles Carroll the Settler, had immigrated to America from Ireland in 1659 and laid the basis of the family’s wealth and influence.

‘Carrollton’ was the name of the family manor from which Charles Carroll of Carrollton took his name.

His cousin, Daniel Carroll, born in Prince George’s County, Maryland, in 1737, was also an influential politician and is recognised as one of the Founding Fathers of the United States.

Daniel Carroll’s brother, John, became the first Catholic Bishop in the United States.
