Roper, John (b. , d. 1524)
Note: John Roper was Sheriff of Kent in 1521 and long held the office of prothonotary of the Court of King's Bench, the equivalent of chief clerk and a very remunerative office.

He was buried in the chapel of St. Nicholas in St. Dunstan's Church, Canterbury. His will, signed on Jan 27 1523, was so complicated that it required an Act of Parliament to be given effect.

Carson, Samuel Price (b. 22 JAN 1798, d. NOV 1840)
Note: Samuel Price Carson entered political life early and was elected to the North Carolina State Senate in 1822, when only twenty-four. He was reelected in 1824.

In 1825 he decided to run for Congress. Also in the race were the incumbent, Robert B. Vance, and the man who had held the seat from 1817 to 1823, Felix Walker. Neither was impressed with Carson. "I'm told there's a boy from Burke [County] who wants to be a candidate," Walker told a crowd early in the campaign. But while the others played the rituals of politics in those days, such as insisting that they were only runing because so many of their friends had insisted, Carson said quite frankly that the reason he was running was because he wanted to go to Congress. It was soon clear that public sympathies were with him and Felix Walker withdrew, throwing his support, and the election, to Carson. He proved an able Congressman and was thought the best extemporaneous speaker in the House.

Carson again faced Vance in the next election. Vance accused Carson's father of cowardice during the Revloution and Carson immediately challenged him to a duel. Carson was accompanied onto the field by his fellow Congressmen, Davey Crockett of Tennessee, and his second, Warren R. Davis of South Carolina. Carson, a crack shot, had decided only to wound his opponent, but Davis told him that in that case another challenge was inevitable and that he would have to withdraw as second. Carson easily killed Vance, but his action haunted him for the rest of his life.

Carson was a supporter of Andrew Jackson and the two men developed a strong political friendship. But Carson also believed in the doctrine of states' rights, whereas both Jackson and the people of Carson's district were strongly of the opinion that the preservation of the Union must come first. The bone of contention was the Tariff, and the country came close to civil war over South Carolina's nullification act. As a result Carson's friendship with Jackson was severely strained, and he lost his seat in Congress in the election of 1832.

In 1835 Carson decided to move to Texas and did so the following year, the year that Texas declared its independence of Mexico. Carson was a member of the convention that drafted the Texas Constitution and was named Secretary of State in the new Texas government. He went to Washington and there lobbied his old political allies for recognition of the Texas Republic, which was granted after the victory at San Jacinto by Sam Houston.

But Carson's health had been broken by hard work and the burden on his conscience of Vance's death never lifted. He died in Little Rock, Arkansas, while returning to Texas in 1840, only forty-two years old.
