Antica e nobile famiglia originaria di Genova. Il commendator G.B. di Crollalanza riporta la blasonatura di questa famiglia, nei volumi del suo “Dizionario storico blasonico delle famiglie nobili e notabili italiane”. Essi vennero confermati nobili il 20 Ottobre 1883. I nomi dei Carro si trovano soprattutto ricordati in contratti di acquisto di terre e case a partire dal XIII secolo. Ma se ci mancano i rogiti anteriori a quelli di Giovanni Scriba dell’anno 1150, e di Lanfranco Lotaro del 1180, onde accrescere più gradi di nobiltà di questa famiglia, gli stessi atti però ci somministrano una prova evidente di un’antichità molto anteriore, trovandosi molte di esse sì numerose e divise in parecchi rami, in modo che si vede chiaramente che per rimontare ai loro stipiti primitivi sarebbe d’uopo salire varie generazioni, e penetrare non solo nell’undicesimo secolo, ma avanzarsi di molto al di là del mille. Annovera questa illustre casata personaggi di elevate virtù. La penuria delle scritture in quegli antichi secoli e sopratutto incendi, specialmente quello cagionato dalle bombe del 1684, avendo distrutto molti antichi protocolli ci privano di quelle curiosità più nobili. La presenza dell’arma nella bibliografia documentata della famiglia Carro ci conferma l’avita nobiltà raggiunta dalla casata ..

Purtroppo in lingua originale Inglese. : This Last Name of CARRO was primarily from a French personal name of Galic origin, represented in Latin records in the form Caraunus, and probably extrapolated from the Celtic element CAR (to love). This name was borne by a 5th century Breton saint who lived at Chartres and was murdered by robbers; his legend led to its widespread use as a given name during the Middle Ages. The earliest French hereditary last names are found in the 12th century, at more or less the same time as they arose in England, but they are by no means common before the 13th century, and it was not until the 15th century that they stabilized to any great extent; before then a Last Name might be handed down for two or three generations, but then abandoned in favour of another. In the south, many French last names have come in from Italy over the centuries, and in Northern France, Germanic influence can frequently be detected. The name was brought into England at an early date, and moved to Ireland where in Gaelic the name is MacCiarain. Early records of the name mention Ciarain, 1136, and McCarrane appears in 1430. The last names in Ireland primarily signified membership of a clan, but with the passage of time, the clan system became less distinct, and last names came to identify membership of what is called a ‘sept’; a group of people all living in the same locality, all bearing the same Last Name, but not necessarily descended from a common ancestor. Adoption of the name by people who did not otherwise have a Last Name and by dependents was not uncommon. Just over one hundred years after the Norman Conquest of England, the first Normans arrived in Ireland. Richard de Clare, Second Earl of Pembroke (died 1176), was known as Strongbow. He was invited to Ireland by Dermot MacMurrough, King of Leinster, whose daughter he married, to help him in his wars with his neighbours. He was accompanied by several retainers whose name, like his own, have become well established as last names in Ireland. The Normans established themselves in Leinster and paid homage to Henry II of England. Some of the Norman settlers acquired last names extrapolated from the Irish. (Registered at Killinfanghin, County Westmeath, extrapolated from the house of O’Neill through a fourth son.) Ireland was one of the earliest states to evolve a system of hereditary last names. They came into being fairly generally in the 11th century, and indeed a few were formed before the year 1000. The name has many variant spellings which include Carran, Carine, Karran, Caronet, Cheronnet and Cheroneau…. Noble title: Nobili Coat of arms: D’argento, alla banda d’azzurro caricata da tre semivoli d’oro posti in palo. Cimiero: Un volo d’oro; due teste e colli di cigno accostati d’argento, collarinati d’or…
