Carroll was born in Upper Marlboro, Maryland, and educated mainly at the College of St. Omer in French Flanders. He joined the Society of Jesus in 1753 and was ordained to the priesthood in 1761. Carroll remained in Europe until he was almost 40, teaching at St-Omer and Liège, and acting as chaplain to several British aristocrats traveling on the continent.
