Research Notes

After I merged to John Carey profiles it was pointed out some differences still are on the profile which need to be researched and maybe corrected.

  • marriage after the merge John is listed as married to two different Mary's both with the same maiden name of Hyde. On their profiles both have same mother but one is fatherless and the other has Leonard as the father. I am highlighting this so that anyone is doing research can see why I merged to two John profiles. (I may have made a mistake for which I apologise) so please if you think I am wrong please correct my accidental error TIADavies-5942 09:04, 8 October 2021 (UTC)

From Wikipedia:John_Carey,_3rd_Baron_Hunsdon

He was the son of Henry Carey 1st Baron Hunsdon and Ann Morgan the younger brother of George Hundson 2nd Baron Hundson and a grandson of Mary Boleyn. it is alleged that his father was the Illegitimate son of Henry VIII of England born of Mary Boleyn when she was a royal mistress. (see Reference 1 below) He was educated at Trinity College , Cambridge and knighted in 1598 and succeeded his brother as the third Baron Hundson in 1603.

He had a number of court and public offices including Gentleman pensioner from 1573-1603 , Chamberlain of Berwick-upon-Tweed in 1585, Deputy Warden of East March , Justice of the Peace for Cambridgeshire in 1594 and Marshall of Berwick-upon-Tweed from 1596-1598 and again in 1603. He was elected MP for Buckingham in 1584, 1589 and 1593.

Carey's letters from Berwick describe the arrest of Jacob Kroger , a goldsmith working for Anne of Denmark and he identifies Anne Murray as the mistress of James VI of Scotland (see Reference 2 below) and wrote in April 1595 that James and Anne planned to come on a progress towards Berwick , including a visit to Holiday (Halidon Hill) which overlooked the town and its fortifications. He wrote to his father wondering if the town should give them a cannon salute. (see Reference 3 below)

Carey relayed newes of Humphrey Dethick a former employee of Baptist Hicks who came to Dunfermline Palace and killed a man. (see Reference 4 below)

In June 1603, after the Union of Crowns and hearing rumours that the Berwick garrison would be downsized and Lord Home made governor , Carey wrote to Robert Cecil that someone should have charge of Berwick "considering how many distressed and discontented hearts and minds there be in it." (see Reference 5 below)

John Carey died at Hundson, Hertfordshire in 1617 and was succeeded by his son Henry Carey , 1st Earl of Dover.

He married Mary, the daughter of Leonard Hyde of Hyde Hall and Throcking in Hertfordshire, widow of Richard Peyton of Little Chesterford, Essex, They had three sons and two daughters. (see Reference 6 below)

I did a merge of to John Carey (Carey-5 and Carey-5336) After I merged to John Carey profiles it was pointed out some differences still are on the profile which need to be researched and maybe corrected. Marriage after the merge John is listed as married to two different Mary's both with the same maiden name of Hyde. On their profiles both have same mother but one is fatherless and the other has Leonard as the father. I am highlighting this so that anyone is doing research can see why I merged to two John profiles.

Carey-5 and Carey-5336 appear to represent the same person because: They have the same birth and death dates and are married to the same person.

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.
