 I am referring to more then one master; so should it be; masters' masters or master's? (see plural carriages)

 

Slaves driving their masters’ fancy horse-drawn carriages full with white families pass by. 

If you are interested, I have lots more!

 

Grammarly is okay with all of them?

Apostrophe before "s" is singular possessive and after "s" is plural possessive.

Masters is the plural of master. 

Master's is the possessive form of master.  (singular)

Masters' is the possessive form of masters.  (plural)

 

Your sentence is very awkward.  Changing "with" to "of" will help a bit.
