About Richard Cary, the younger

Richard Cary became a burgess (freeman) of Bristol in 1553. It was common for men to take up freedom shortly after completing their apprenticeship. No-one could become a burgess until he was twenty-one. Freemen were allowed to practice their trade, take on apprentices, and vote in elections.

Taken from receipts of new burgess money in audit for 1552-53:
