About William Cary, Mayor of Bristol 1546

Note: His parents are unknown. He was not the son of Robert Carey, Esq. and Agnes Hody their son was William Cary, of Ladford

William Cary was Sheriff of Bristol in 1532 and Mayor of Bristol in 1546.

The following apprentice records and an indenture of lease dated 1529 show William Cary had a wife named Agnes (Anne in one apprentice record), her maiden name is unknown.

William Cary's will and the wills of other family members confirm he had at least five children. His eldest son was Richard, styled Richard Cary the elder, William, Agnes and Margery. It is unclear if these children were by his wife Agnes or an unknown first wife. William Cary also had a younger son named Richard who was styled Richard Cary the younger. He was most likely the son of Agnes.
