I was surprised to read that a "Mary Carlton" was one of the first Carltons in America many years ago. I also wondered how the name came about and how so many hotels usually the top end of the budget scale - I like the name very much and hope to keep it forever (it is my single name too) and also was my Grandmother's name.
Perhaps the most famous 'Carlton' is the AFL team in Australia. Long, proud history. Huge supporter base. Regarded as the rich snobs of the league.
I am an Illinois Carlton. Father Harold R.; Grandfather Charles Richard Carlton born California. G-G Charles E. Never met a Carlton other than my own blood line. I often wondered about the Hotels history too. It is a proud name! :-)
I'm from a family of Carltons and like many other Carltons my grandpa was born in Kentucky too. What I wonder though is why rich places use the name Carlton. I'm mostly Irish but I read on another website that some of the carltons moved to Ireland so I guess that makes sense.
