Just a note for last name purposes, from a direct Cary male, I've researched this for decades. Notice that Castle Cary has remained Cary for longer than any other version. Many individuals during this period as well as other occurrences through the generations have used, misspelled, purposely added the e, some that fled to Germany during the reign of Bloody Mary changed their name to Kari. Honestly, I don't get too "bent up" about the spelling, unless someone with a different last name decides to "choose" which Cary/Carey/Kari/de Kari/deKarry last name is correct. There seems to have been a handful of derivations. My own Gr. Grandfather purposely moved to Arkansas, used Kery for one US Census, near recorded cousins that were Cary's. LONG story, but they eventually moved back as Cary's.

Cary-1194 and Carey-5 appear to represent the same person because: These are the same person. The spelling of the last name created the second reference.
