    Sir WILLIAM CARY 10, Knight, ) was born in 1437. He married Elizabeth Paulett. He was known as the Knight of Cockington. He was an ardent supporter of the House of Lancaster, and took an active part in the struggle between the adherents of Henry VI and Edward IV in the War of the Roses.

    At the Battle of Tewksbury on May 4, 1471, the Lancastrians were defeated, and William with others took refuge in the Abbey Church. According to the custom of those times the church was a "Sanctuary" and they could not be taken out of it. They were inticed out on promise of pardon and two days later were beheaded. His property was confiscated as usual in such cases, but Henry VII restored it to his son Robert. I cannot ascertain for what reason, but probably because that King was a scion of the House of Lancaster in whose cause his father lost his life and property.

    William had two sons, Robert, born in 1460, and Thomas, born in 1465. From Thomas sprang three lines of nobility. From Robert, the family of Clovelly, Torre Abbey and Somerset.
