Dabney Carr (April 27, 1773 – January 8, 1837), was the son of Dabney Carr, Sr. (1743 – 1773) and Martha Jefferson Carr, Thomas Jefferson's younger sister. He was the younger brother of Peter Carr, one of Wythe's students. Dabney Carr received forty-five of George Wythe's titles when Jefferson dispersed the collection after Wythe's death.
Carr served as commonwealth's attorney for Albemarle County from 1801 to 1811, and chancellor of Winchester and Clarksburg from 1812 to 1824. He was elected to the court of appeals — Virginia's highest court — in 1824, and held this position until his death in 1837.
