|A Brief History of
Cari, Somerset, England (if you visit there looking for documented
history they will tell you there is no documentation linking the Cary’s to
the castle. They believe the Castle is named for the river near there also
called Cary. On the other hand the church at the top of Clovelly does have
tombs and the harbor wall is credited with being designed and built by the
Cary who is an ancestor to John Cary b. 1610.)
I am also attaching a link to Clovelly, UK. http://www.clovelly.co.uk/history.php this is a link to the page that explains the History of Clovelly and the Cary involvement.
