 Willelmo Carter was listed in the Lay subsidy returns for 1327 but Carter could have described his trade as much as his family name. There are other references to Carters in the area and Mary Flower of Chewton married a Samuel Carter on 5/2/1732/33 in Chewton Mendip.
The 18th century churchwarden accounts and poor-law records showthe Carters were mainly recipients of poor relief. There are several records of members of the Carter family being assigned to various estates as apprentices. Unity Carter was a patient of Dr Bath in the 1760s.
 Samuel Carter was involved with William Blanning in a way that is not fully understood but the relationship was strong enough for Samuel Carter to inherit what is now called the Old Vicarage when William Blanning died. William Blanning Carter was his son and was a tenat at Priory Farm in 1880s.
 Percey Ralph Carter was described as an engineer of Chewton Mendip when he was listed as a trustee of the Methodist Chapel in Chewton Mendip in 1910. He probably worked for Mendip Motors.
 William Carter was a tenant at Sperrings farm from 1866 to 1897. This may be William Blanning Carter but both  William Blanning Carter and William Carter were listed at Sperrings Green so they were probably father and son. William B Carter is also listed at Priory farm in 1872. William Carter died in 1911.
 William Henry Freeborn Carter was the tenant at Sperrings Green Farm  from 1919 to 1935. Ivy Gertrude Carter was believed to have been his wife. She was  described as  a married woman living in Sperrings Green Farm when she was listed as a trustee of the Methodist Chapel in 1956.
