Robert Carey was MP for Morpeth in the years before their marriage, and soon after Henry's death, she married Sir Robert, on 20 Aug 1593, in Berwick-upon-Tweed, England. Robert was one thousand pounds in debt at the time! As Henry had no children, the estate at Widdrington came with Elizabeth to their marriage.
