    Winget book, p. 72, supposed to be descendant from the Roman Emperor, Carus, General in Britain in 285 A.D.
    The Cary family, in England, is one of the oldest and most noted. The earliest member of this family of whom we have record was Adam de Karri, Lord of Castle Cary, in the county of Somerset. This castle was a "Stately Edifice". A village exists there today called Castle Cary. As early as the reign of Edward I, the name was spelled CARY.

    In the Domesday book, late 11th century, Castle Cary is held by Walter de Douai, a Norman noble holding 37 manors.

    Shell and BP Guide to Britain, p. 42. Castle Cary. "Capital" of Caryland - an old yellow-stone town, the home of good cheddar cheese. Note the little "pepper-box" lock-up and the remains of the Norman castle.

    Colonial and Revolutionary Lineage, Vol. 1, p. 245. Cary and its variant, Carey, are surnames of locality origin, meaning "of Carey." They are great west-country surnames. Lower, in his "Patronymica Britannica," quoting Sir Bernard Burke's "Landed Gentry of Great Britain and Ireland," says: "The ancient family of Cary derives its surname from the manor of Cary or Kari, as it is called in Doomsday Book, lying in the parish of St. Giles-on-the-Heath, near Launceston." This parish is in County Devon. The Cary family of Bristol, England are lineally descended from Adam de Karin, Lord of Castle Cary in Somerset, in 1198. A confirmation of arms, granted in 1699, sets forth that the branch of that family seated at Bristol had "time out of mind" borne the arms of the family of Cary of Devonshire. From "Pedigree," registered in 1699 in the Heralds' College, London, by John Cary of Bristol and his brother Richard, Alderman of London.
