He was elected MP for Buckingham in 1584, 1589 and 1593.

  • Carey, John (d.1617) by Augustus Jessopp
  • CAREY, JOHN, third Lord Hunsdon (d. 1617), second son of Henry, first lord Hunsdon [q.v.], was deputy warden of the eastern marches under his father, and marshal of Berwick, where he proclaimed James I king of England (Nichols, Progresses, i.50), when his brother Sir Robert. Carey [q.v.] rode northwards with the news of Queen Elizabeth's death. He was much esteemed by James I,and appears to have conducted some diplomatic business between the king and Queen Elizabeth with rare sagacity and tact. His brother Sir Robert mentions him once or twice in his autobiographical memoirs, and always with respect, though he had little to thank him for in the bargain the brothers made for the possession of Norham Castle. On the death of his brother George, second lord Hunsdon [q.v.], without male issue, he succeeded to the title in September 1603 (ib. p. 263). His name appears occasionally in the court pageants of James I's reign. He married Mary, daughter of Leonard Hyde of Throcking, Hertfordshire, and, dying in April 1617, left behind two sons, Henry and Charles, of whom the elder, Henry, succeeded to the title, and became subsequently Viscount Rochfort and Earl of Dover.

  • Carey, who no doubt owed his Buckingham seat to his father’s influence, spent much of his life on the borders of Scotland helping his father with the administration of the east march. From time to time he was used in diplomatic business between Elizabeth and James VI of Scotland, who is said to have esteemed him highly, and to have admired his skill and tact in negotiation. Carey is mentioned only once in the journals of the House of Commons: he was on a committee concerned with the recusants’ bill, 28 Feb. 1593.
  • On the death of his father, in July 1596, Carey became marshal of Berwick and commander of the garrison. In the following January he wrote to Lord Burghley complaining of the methods used for paying the garrison—a matter of constant anxiety and irritation to the governors there. The evidence points to his having been an active and efficient administrator. In 1598 he relinquished his office at Berwick to the 3rd Lord Willoughby, and moved to the south.3
  • Carey obtained an annuity of £424 from James I, who no doubt remembered his earlier services. His name is mentioned occasionally in the accounts of pageants and other entertainments at James’s court. He died at Hunsdon, where he was buried 7 Apr. 1617: his will, made on 31 Mar., was proved nine days after the funeral. It has a protestant preamble.4
