About Nicholas de Carew

Nicholas Carew (died 1390) was Keeper of the Privy Seal during the reign of Edward III of England.


Nicholas Carew was descended from the Carew family of Carew Castle in Pembrokeshire.[1] Sometime after 1352 he married Lucy, the daughter of Richard de Willoughby, and came into possession of the latter's manor at Beddington.[2] Carew was a man of ability,[1] holding the high office of Keeper of the Privy Seal from 1371 to 1377,[3] and was one of the executors of King Edward's will. He died in 1390, and was buried in the church of St. Mary's at Beddington.[2]

  • Notes: He was Keeper of the Privy Seal, Edward III. The long association of the Carew family with Beddington and its Parish Church began about the middle of the 14th century and lasted, at least in name, almost to Victorian times. There are many memorials to members of the family and their dependents in the church at the present time, though according to Aubrey, the Surrey historian, there were many more at one time which have now disappeared. The first member of the family to reside at Beddington was Sir Nicholas Carew, who acquired the Lordship of this and other adjacent manors, by his marriage to the daughter of the former owner, Sir Richard Willoughby. He served in many important offices in the County and was succeeded in 1391 by his second son, also Nicholas by name. The Parish Church of St. Mary The Virgin, Beddington, Surrey: The History.
