The most recent scholarship supports 1507 as the year of Anne’s birth. Their only surviving sibling was an older brother George, born in 1503. She was named after Princess Mary Tudor, the youngest child of Henry VII and Elizabeth of York.Her family was loyal to the Tudor dynasty but had Yorkist connections.
Though he was not a titled lord, his duties meant he had intimate contact with the king on a daily basis. Henry used his attendants, with whom he spent his leisure hours, to carry out government work.
The king gave the newlyweds a cash present – 6s.8d.; this was undoubtedly welcome since William Carey was a younger son and lacked money and lands.
Henry’s favor (and, more particularly, Mary’s affair with Henry) helped in this respect – before his death in 1528, William had received two keeperships, a stewardship, an annuity, and manors in two counties.
As to William’s ancestry, he could trace his descent from Edward III; his mother was a cousin of Margaret Beaufort, Henry VII’s mother.
His aunt Catherine Spencer was married to Henry, fifth earl of Northumberland.His son became a knight under Richard III and a baron under Henry VII.
