William Cary was born in ChiltonFolist, Wiltshire, England about 1491 to Thomas Cary and Margaret (Spencer) Cary. William held the title of "Gentleman of the Privy" to King Henry VIII. William had six children with his wife Mary Boelyn. Mary Boelyn was a mistress of Henry VIII before he married her sister Anne Boelyn. Due to this, there is speculation that Henry VIII fathered William's 'legitimate' issue. Weir is one of the better sources to review the debate. William died on June 22, 1528 of Sweating sickness.
