Carlisle family


Origin of the surname
The surname Carlisle was first established in Cumberland where they were recorded as a family of great antiquity seated at Carlisle in that shire. Spelling variations included Carlile, Carlysle, Carlyle, Carliell and many more.

William Carlisle junior emigrated to Australia in 1804 aboard Experiment. Little is known about William Carlisle senior who in 1802 wrote to the Colonial Secretary requesting permission to emigrate to New South Wales. William Carlisle senior never arrived in NSW, but his son William did. We know that the emigrant ship Experiment was damaged in a gale in the Bay of Biscay and had to return to Cowes to mend its bowsprit and mount a new topgallant mast. Perhaps this experience was so frightening that William Carlisle senior chose not to continue with the journey. Or perhaps he never embarked in the first place.
