Cartwright Family

The Cartwright Family are the owners and commanders of the Cartwright's Cavaliers human mercenary company. The current heir is Col. Jim Cartwright II, son of Thaddeus Cartwright.

They trace their lineage to at least the American Revolutionary War. After first contact, James E. Cartwright, Sr. founded the Cavaliers.

Besides their military tradition, they also have a tradition of preserving history, with that earliest member founding a museum in Virginia. Currently, they own the Cartwright Historical Preservation Society located at the William P. Hobby Airport.
