Carr - travel writer, who in 1807 had his Irish book satirized by Edward Dubois in My pocket-book, or, Hints for a 'ryghte merrie and conceitede' tour, in quarto, to be called, 'The stranger in Ireland'. For this satire the publishers were prosecuted in 1809. Dubois had mocked not only the style of Carr's books but also their profitability to Carr and his publishers and the trial revealed that Carr had received £1900 for his four travel books.
