About the Project

The Carey Name Study project serves as a collaborative platform to collect information on the Carey name. The hope is that other researchers like you will join the study to help make it a valuable reference point for other genealogists who are researching or have an interest in the Carey name.

As a One Name Study, this project is not limited to persons who are related biologically. Individual studies can be used to branch out the research into specific methods and areas of interest, such as geographically (England Carey's), by time period (18th Century Carey's), or by topic (Carey DNA, Carey Occupations, Carey Statistics). These studies may also include a number of family branches which have no immediate link with each other. Some researchers may even be motivated to go beyond the profile identification and research stage to compile fully sourced, single-family histories of some of the families they discover through this name study project.

Origins of the Surname Carey

The Carey name, which can be traced more clearly, has its origins in Normandy in Northern Europe. The word "Kari" in Celtic means "pleasant stream."

The earliest recorded Carey ancestor from this area was Adam de Kari, a knight lord who served under William the Conqueror and arrived in Britain shortly after the Norman invasion of 1066.
