Maybe one Ann and one Blanche would be good, but surely not two Anns

1. CAREY, John (d.1617), of Berwick-upon-Tweed, Northumb. and Hunsdon, Herts. (MP for Buckingham): HOP page does indicate two daughters. Somethings wrong with the two Anns, though. It feels like mixed data. I did an ascent approach and my data in Ancestry did match up with a Daniel husband as father of Clare, but that may be in one of the profiles, of which there should be only one, anyway. I am afraid to look, as the one profile I stumbled into doing the ascent, the possible husband was Darby! Not what I had. . ..

2. Wikipedia has this list of progeny, that's useful. I started working on one of the Ann profiles before I realized that another possible duplicate sister was sitting right there.

[2]The Herald and genealogist, Volume 4, 1867 Google Books 

  • Henry Carey (Dec 1577 – Dec 1577)[3]
  • Henry Carey, 1st Earl of Dover
  • Charles Carey, married Elizabeth Whitbroke
  • Blanche Hunsdon (d. 6 November 1651), married 1) Christopher Peyton and 2) Sir Thomas Wodehouse [4]
  • Anne Carey (bur. 6 December 1622), married Sir Francis Lovell of East Harlyng. The Wikipedia reference pedigree chart that lists this Anne married Sir Francis Lovell of E Harling in Norfolk (d. Nov 1624), s.p. So the Anne Carey who married other men or had children with them? Not so clear. . .

 The Wikipedia reference also shows a different Anne Carey, daughter of Sir Edmund, married to Sir Wm. Uvedale also an MP (Hampshire, Newport, Portsmouth and Petersfield). 

Any arborists might better tackle this one.

I find it pays to work backwards from the American end.

We're told Caleb Lindsay married "a Miss Clare", and had James, who married Sarah Daniel.

I suspect a descendant of a sibling of James was peeved at missing out on the Daniel connection, so they decided that Caleb's wife could be Clare Daniel.

And hey, a Daniel married a Carey, and we know who they're descended from, nudge nudge.

But the dates of "Clare Daniel" don't work with the parents given.  I suspect she never existed.

That leaves the problem of which Daniel married the Carey.

The coincidence of dates makes me think one of these marriages is just a garbled version of the other.

Or perhaps not.

Robert Daniel is supposed to be the grandfather of another Robert Daniel who emigrated and was briefly a Governor.  But it's said the immigrant was born in Wales.  His true background seems obscure.

Roger was apparently an immigrant himself and married Ann Unknown.

I felt pretty certain an immigrant was in the mix, as that is how I ended up encountering Clare Daniel (1666-1724) of Essex, Virginia. The real question is which "Ann Cary/Carey" was her mother. . .
