Notes

Sir Nicholas CAREW

Master of the Horse to Henry VIII.
Richard's son was given the family name of Nicholas. He became a great favourite at the Court of King Henry VIII, held the highest office of Master of the Horse, and was made a Knight of the Garter. But he fell from favour and was executed in 1538 for his part in Cardinal Pole's rebellion, though there appears to be some doubt whether this was really the cause of the King's displeasure. The estate was forfeited to the Crown and it was not till the reign of Queen Mary that it was restored to Francis Carew, the only son of Nicholas.
