--Laurel Logan -------------------- King Henry VII restored the Clovelly estate to Robert. He was the 11th generation of the Clovelly line of the Cary family and the progenitor of the Devonshire and Somersetshire branches of the family.

The laws of heraldry in Britain are very exacting, as late as 1715, the Earl Marshal of England issued a decree that the Bristol family was the same as that of the Devonshire and that they could lawfully use the same coat of arms. -------------------- Robert Cary was born in Clovery in 1460. He died June 15, 1540. He first married Jane Carew about 1484 and had two known children. Next he married Margaret Fulkeram and had one known child, Robert Cary. Last he married Agnes Hody. Her father was William Hody (born 1448) and had one known child, William Cary.
