The Carter Society

Walter Carter has shared some interesting information on Major Edward Dale:

The following quote is from “Our British Founding Father,” an article about the popularity of Shakespeare’s writings in colonial America, in the Wall Street Journal, June 19, 2016, p. D5.

“One recently discovered source at the Folger (Shakespeare Library) – a volume once owned by Edward Dale (1620-1695), who immigrated to Virginia in the 1650s – contains a list of the books he owned at his death, which included Shakespeare’s Second Folio (1632); this is now the earliest record of Shakespeare’s works owned in America.”

Major Edward Dale (1624-1695) was the father of Katharine Dale, wife of Captain Thomas “of Barford” Carter, Sr. (1630-1700).
