Eleanor CAREY (Nun at Wilton Abbey)

Born: ABT 1496, Clovelly, Devonshire, England

Died: AFT 1528

Notes: was a nun at Wilton Abbey, a large Benedictine nunnery located some seventy miles from London. When the abbess, Cecily Willoughby, died on 24 Apr 1528, the prioress, Isabel Jordan or Jordayn, whose sister Agnes was the abbess at Syon, was the natural successor. She was "ancient, wise, and discreet". But Eleanor Carey's name was also proposed, and Eleanor had the backing of Anne Boleyn. Cardinal Wolsey, supporting Isabel Jordan, ordered that Eleanor’s background be thoroughly investigated. It soon came out that Eleanor had borne two children out of wedlock to two different priests and had more recently been involved with a servant in Lord Willoughby de Broke's household. Eleanor's eldest sister, also a nun at Wilton, was then proposed as a compromise candidate. This may have been Anne Carey. In Jul, the King decided that none of them should have the post, but Wolsey went ahead with Dame Isabel’s appointment anyway, precipitating the first violent disagreement between King and Cardinal. What happened to Eleanor Carey after that is unknown.

Henry CAREY (1º V. Falkland)

Born: ABT 1576, Aldenham, Hertfordshire, England

Acceded: 14 Nov 1620

Buried: 25 Sep 1633, Aldenham, Hertfordshire, England

Notes: Lord Caye, Member of Parliament. The Complete Peerage vol.V,pp.239-240. A coloniser and military officer. He was born in England and educated at Exeter College, Oxford. In 1611 he became a supporter of the Northwest Passage Company and was knighted in 1616. Carey was created first Viscount Falkland and Lord Deputy of Ireland in 1620. In that year he proposed a colony in Newfoundland for settlement by Irish colonists. Carey was linked to the London and Bristol Company which had initiated colonisation of Newfoundland through his wife who was the daughter of Sir Laurence Tanfield, one of the leaders of the Company. In 1620 the company granted him a large tract of land in the Bonavista Peninsula which became known as North Falkland. Soon after William Vaughan sold part of his land to Carey. In 1623, Carey appointed Sir Francis Tanfield, his wife's cousin, to be the colony's first Proprietary Governor. Tanfield established the colony of South Falkland in 1623. It was still in existence by 1626 but ultimately failed and Carey granted much of his land to Sir Henry Salisbury who had been Carey's only known investor. Carey served as Lord Deputy of Ireland until 1629 when he returned to England. Died from a leg amputation.

Lucius CAREY (2º V. Falkland)

Born: ABT 1610, Aldenham, Hertfordshire, England

Died: 20 Sep 1643, Battle of Newbury, Berkshire, England

Buried: 23 Sep 1643, Great Tew, Oxfordshire, England

Notes: In 1642 Carey sold Aldenham House to Sir Job Harby, a staunch Royalist. The house later became the property of Denzil Holles in 1663. It was completely restored in the 19th century, but has many 16th and 17th century internal features. Lord Falkland has been described as both the most noble and most pathetic figure of the Civil Wars. Prior to the Wars he was a member for Newport, I.O.W. and was a moderate, but when war broke out his allegiances were clearly with the King. He has been described as an extremely intelligent and knowledgeable man, a philosopher and poet, noble and gallant. However it is well documented that by his own word he was sickened by the plight of the age and developed a melancholy that degenerated into a morbid death wish, seeing no end to the war. When he charged headlong to his death at the first battle of Newbury in Sep 1643, he committed a gallant suicide and met the death for which he had longed. He charged his mount through a heavily guarded gap in a hedgerow and Parliamentarian musketeers easily picked him off. He was shot through the neck, stripped naked and was identified after the day-long battle by a mole on his neck. His body was returned home and later interred at Great Tew church. There now stands a memorial to Lord Falkland at the Newbury battle site.

They had at least five of their children with them. Catherine was back in England by 14 Jan 1559. She and Anne Morgan, her brother Henry’s wife, became ladies of the privy chamber to Queen Elizabeth. Catherine’s children were also at court. In 1560, she and her son Robert were granted Taunton Manor for life. She died at Hampton Court and the Queen paid for her funeral, which cost £640 2s.11d.

Catherine CAREY (C. Nottingham)

Born: AFT 1547

Died: 25 Feb 1602/3, Arundel House, London, Middlesex, England

Notes: came to court in Jan 1560 as a gentlewoman of the privy chamber and quickly became one of Elizabeth Tudor’s favorites. In Jul 1563 she married Charles Howard, later E. of Nottingham. Their children were brought up at Reigate, but Catherine spent her time at court. She held various posts, including Mistress of Robes and Mistress of Jewels. She twice entertained Elizabeth at her husband’s house in King Street, Westminster, in 1585 and again in 1587. As a reward for her long service, she was granted the manor of Chelsea in 1591. According to legend, the Countess of Nottingham was responsible for the Earl of Essex’s execution in 1601. The story goes that Essex was supposed to have given a ring (a gift to him from the queen) to a messenger with directions to give it to Lady Scrope, Lady Nottingham’s sister, who sympathized with his situation. The messenger mistook the sisters and gave the ring to Lady Nottingham and, as she was not an Essex supporter, she kept it. On her deathbed she is said to have confessed her deception to the Queen, who cried out “God may forgive you, Madam, but I never can!”. The problem with this story is that Lady Nottingham was not at court in 1601. She fell ill in Jan of that year and her health continued to decline until her death at Arundel House two years later. Her passing so demoralized the queen that Elizabeth lost her own will to live. Catherine was buried at Chelsea three days before Queen Elizabeth was interred in Westminster Abbey.

Margaret suffered from gout and journeyed to Bath in Apr 1600 with her brother, Lord Hunsdon and his wife to take the waters there. The following year she was a patient of Dr. Simon Forman.
