    Notes:

    "Genealogical and Family History of the State of Connecticut, Vol. I-IV": The family of Carey in England is one of the oldest as well as one of the most illustrious and honored in the kingdom. In the year 1198 Adam DeKarry was lord of Castle Karry or Kari, in the county of Somerset. For centuries the castle has existed only in history, and the village situated in that locality is known as "Castle Cary." William and John Cary represented the count of Devon in Parliament in the thirty-sixth and forty-second reigns of Edward III. John Cary was made a baron of the exchequer of Richard II. Sir Robert Cary, his son, succeeded to his honors and estates. Sir William Cary married Mary Boleyn, a sister of Anne, the consort of Henry VIII. As early as the reign of Edward I, the name was spelled Cary, but many families of the present day spell it Carey.
    John Carey, immigrant ancestor, came from Somersetshire, near the city of Bristol, England, about 1634, and joined the Plymouth colony. the exact date of his arrival is unknown. From a manuscript over a hundred years old, written by a grandson of John, it is believed that differences with his brothers over the settlement of his father's estate let to his departure for the new world. His name is found among the original proprietors and first settlers of Duxbury and Bridgewater. It occurs in the original grant, as well as in the subsequent deed made by Ousamequin, the sachem or chief of the Pockonocket Indians, 1639. This deed was made to Miles Standish, Samuel Nash and Constant Southworth, as trustees in behalf of William Bradford, John Carey and fifty-two others therein named. Ousmequin was afterwards called Massosit. the deed embraced fourteen miles square and designated as "Satucket," afterwards called West Bridgewater. John Carey drew as his share a lot a mile wide, a portion of which is still occupied by his descendants. In 1656 "Duxbury New Plantation" was incorporated into a new and distinct town and called Bridgewater. John Carey was elected constable, the first and only officer elected in the consecutive year until 1681. In 1656 he was one of the ten freemen in the town. In the 1667 Deacon Willis and John Carey were chosen "to take in all the charges of the latter war (King Phillip's) since June last and the expenses of the scouts before and since June." John Carey was prominent among his fellow citizens and participated actively in public affairs. He was intelligent, well educated and public spirited. There is a tradition that he taught the first Latin class in the colony. He married Elizabeth, daughter of Francis Godfrey, one of the first settlers of Bridgewater, in 1644. He died 1681....
