Blogtoberfest 12

Sir Laurence (or Lawrence) Carter, Baron of the Exchequer, was an 18th century judge in England.  The name Lawrence Carter has been used in my husband's family for some time, possibly named after him or not.  My late father-in-law was insistent that this was not the case, but the family story persists.  This is a portrait of him.
