卡罗琳·斯科特-肯維 (1691 – 1720) was the first wife of Edward Kenway and the mother of his daughter, Jennifer Scott. Her father's scheming, combined with Edward's penchant for drink and delusions of grandeur of becoming a rich privateer, eventually led to their estrangement in 1713.
Caroline was the daughter of the wealthy Bristolian tea merchant and Templar Emmett Scott and his wife Elizabeth, and was well respected in her community. Caroline first met Edward Kenway when she rode up to the scene of a fight between him and three men who had attempted to take advantage of a young woman named Rose, one of the Scott family's servants.
Due to her influence, the three men left bashfully, and Caroline helped Edward up and thanked him for his assistance. While Caroline was originally cautious about getting involved with Edward, particularly due to her father arranging her engagement to Matthew Hague, she and Edward eventually fell in love and married some time later.
Two years Edward's senior, Caroline worried about her husband's privateering aspirations and soon grew tired of his inability to find steady work or take his responsibilities as a husband seriously.
His lofty ideas about sailing in the West Indies were the last straw that led to their estrangement; she left their home to live with her parents, much to the dismay of Edward's father and mother, who loved her as the daughter they never had.
Unbeknownst to Edward, Caroline was pregnant with their child, Jennifer, at the time of his departure. The two maintained correspondence, but it was far and fleeting, averaging once a year. Eventually, Caroline fell ill from smallpox and died in 1720, caused by her father's prior infection and his neglect towards medical treatment for her. Edward did not learn of her fate until two years after the fact.
