Nicholas CAREW of Beddington

Died: 17 Aug 1390

Notes: He was Keeper of the Privy Seal, Edward III. The long association of the Carew family with Beddington and its Parish Church began about the middle of the 14th century and lasted, at least in name, almost to Victorian times. There are many memorials to members of the family and their dependents in the church at the present time, though according to Aubrey, the Surrey historian, there were many more at one time which have now disappeared. The first member of the family to reside at Beddington was Sir Nicholas Carew, who acquired the Lordship of this and other adjacent manors, by his marriage to the daughter of the former owner, Sir Richard Willoughby. He served in many important offices in the County and was succeeded in 1391 by his second son, also Nicholas by name. The Parish Church of St. Mary The Virgin, Beddington, Surrey: The History.

Mother: Elizabeth BRYAN


Anne CAREW

Born: ABT 1520, Beddington, Surrey, England

Died: 24 Nov 1587

Buried: St. Catherine Cree Church, London, Middlesex, England

Notes: Impoverished by her father’s execution for treason she married Sir Nicholas Throckmorton during the reign of Edward VI. As Lady Throckmorton, was with Lady Jane Grey during her nine-day reign and was chosen by Queen Jane as her proxy to stand as godmother at a christening on 19 Jul 1553. Anne duly left the Tower for the church and after young Guildford Underhill was christened, she had dinner at her own house. By the time she returned to the Tower, Mary Tudor had been declared queen and even Jane Grey's parents had fled. Anne tried to do likewise but was prevented. She was held along with Jane, Guildford Dudley, and the Duchess of Northumberland. She was later freed, but her husband then became involved in Wyatt’s Rebellion in Feb of 1554 and was imprisoned in the Tower. At that time, Anne was pregnant with her first child. Through a series of lucky circumstances, Throckmorton was acquitted in Apr. They lived quietly for the remainder of Queen Mary's reign. Under Elizabeth Tudor, Throckmorton was ambassador to France from 1559-1562. Anne refused to live there and was instrumental in having him replaced by Sir Thomas Smith. In 1569, Throckmorton was again imprisoned, this time on suspicion of supporting the Northern Rebellion. He was soon released, but he died two years later. None of their children were of age when Throckmorton died and the eldest, William, seems to have been incompetent to inherit. Lady Throckmorton remarried about six months after her husband's death, choosing Adrian Stokes, widower of Frances Brandon, duchess of Suffolk, as her second husband. They settled at Beaumanor in Leicestershire. In early 1579, Anne was in London and often at court, paving the way for her daughter to join the Queen's household. She was again in London and at court in May 1583 and finally, in Nov 1584, Bess Throckmorton was sworn in as a maid of honor; soon became a favorite of Elizabeth and later married Sir Walter Raleigh. Anne's health was failing by the autumn of 1587. She was buried alongside her first husband.

Father: Nicholas CAREW (Sir Knight)

Mother: Elizabeth BRYAN

Married: Son HALL


Isabel CAREW

Notes: 4th dau and heraldic co-heiress of her brother Francis. Was she the mother of all these Saunders children? A visitation of the Throckmorton Carews seems to say not, but the will of Sir Nicholas makes strange provision for his 2nd wife, Margaret Bostock, and enjoins his sons to look after her without even hinting that she was their mother. Sounds like Margaret Bostock was a step-mother. Old Leo Culleton (Of Culleton's Heraldics) seemed to think Isabel was the mother. There is a mention in Ewwell church parish records. Her son, Sir Nicholas, who was was left £300 by his uncle, Sir Francis Carew.
