Thomas Carew, esq. of Anthony, was MP. for Saltash, in the 5th of Elizabeth. He m. Elizabeth, daughter of Sir Richard Edgecombe, knt. of Mount Edgecombe, in the county of Devon, and was s. by his son,

Richard C*rew, esq. the celebrated antiquary, and surveyor of Cornwall, sheriff of that county in the 24th F.i Ixa Iikth, and M.P. for Saltash in the 27th of the same reign. Of this learned person, Anthony Wood, iu his quaint style, gives the following account: "He was born at East Anthony, of an ancient and genteel family, 1555, became a gent. com. of Christ Church very young, about the time that his kinsman, George Carew, (afterwards Earl of Totness,) and William Camden, studied there; at fourteen years of age, he disputed extempore with the matchless Sir William Sidney, in the presence of the Earls of Leicester, Warwick, and other nobility, at what time they were lodged in Christ Church to receive entertainment from the muses; after he had spent three years in Oxon, he retired to the Middle Temple, where he spent three years more, and then was sent with his uncle, (Sir George Carew, as it seems,) in his embassage unto the King of Poland, whom, when he came to Dantzick, he found that he had been newly gone from thence into Sweden, whither also he went after him. After bis return, and a short stay made in England, he was sent by his father into France, with Sir Henry Nevill, who was then ambassador leiger unto King Henry IV. He was high sheriff of Cornwall, 1536. In 15K0, he was elected a member of the college of antiquaries, and about that time he made an historical survey of his native county, which was afterwards printed, he being then accounted a religious, ingenious man, learned, eloquent, liberal, stout, honest, and well skilled in several languages, and the most excellent manager of bees in Cornwall. He was intimate with the most noted scholars iu his time, particularly with Sir Hen. Spelman, who in an epistle, (in his treatise, De non temerandis Ecclesi*,) to him, doth not a little cxtoll him, for his ingenuity, virtue, and learning." Camden characterizes him, as a person no less eminent for his honourable ancestors, than his own virtue and learning, who hath described and drawn this county, (Cornwall,) not in little, but at large, and whom I cannot but acknowledge to have

been my chief guide through it." And again, speak ing of Anthony, in Cornwall, he says, " Ricbari Carew, lord of it, 1607, who not only lived up to d* dignity of his ancestors, but excelled them all in the ornaments of virtue." This eminent person M. Julian, daughter of John Arundel, esq. of Trerice, (and one of the heirs of her mother, Catharine Cosewartk,) try which lady be had several children. He d. 6th Not. 1620, and was buried with his ancestors in the coord of East Anthony, and there was shortly after i splendid monument erected to his memory. His eldest son and heir,+

i. Richard Carew, esq. of Anthony, was created a Baronet by King Charles I., 9th August, 1641. He m. first, in his father's lifetime, Bridget, daughter of John Chudleigh.esq.of Ashton, in the county of DeT», and by that lady had issue,

Ii. Sir Alexander Carew, M.P. for Cornwall in 1641. This gentleman having espoused the cause of the parliament, was accused of treason, and tried it Guildhall, in 1644, " for adhering to the king, and betraying his trust,"! convicted, and sentenced to death. On the Sunday ensuing, his lady presented a petition to the House of Commons, setting forth, that her husband was in a kind of distracted condition, and unfit to die, and therefore prayed he might be reprieved: whereupon a committee was sent to risit him, and report his condition, who declared him not to be distracted; that he might have time, hoverer, to settle his estate and prepare himself for death, execution was respited for above a month, viz. until Monday, December 23, 1644, when he was brought by the lieutenant and his officers to a scaffold erected on Tower Hill, and there decapitated. He had ss, Jane, daughter of Robert Hollo, esq. of Heanton, in the county of Devon, and sister of Six Robert Rolle, kmand had issue,

abroad to his benefit, he hath reposed himself.'' He again mentions him thus:—" Master George Carew, (afterwards Sir George) in his younger yeres, gathered such fruit at the universitie, the inncs of court, and furray ne travel could yeeld him: upon his returne, be was first called to the bar, then supplyed the place of secretarie to the Lord Chancellour nation; ami after his decease, performed the like office to his two successors, by special recommendation from her Majcstie, who also gave him the proihonotaryship of the chancery, and in Anno 15;w, sent liini ambassador to the King of Poland, and other northern potentates, where through unexpected accidents, he underwent extraordinary perils, but God freed him from them, and he performed his duty in acceptable maner, and at this present the commonwealth useth his service as a master of the chancery."

+ His younger son, John Carew, was a gallant soldier, and served with distinction in the Low Countries, and other parts. Having lost his rieht hand by a cannon ball at the siege of Ostcnd, in 1601, he was known amongst his friends as " one-handed Carew." He m.

X Lord Clarendon relates, that, at the breaking oott* the civil war, Plymouth was esteemed one of tbc rowt considerable towns in the west of England; that then was in ha strong castle towards the sea, with good pu"t forms and ordnance; and, about a musket-shot from the town, there was an island with a fort in it, much stronset than the castle; and that the mayor and corporation ** Plymouth seized both the castle and island, and kep* them for the parliament: that, as a reward for the service thus rendered, the parliament committed the governracui thereof to the major, who was well enough instructed, what respect to pay to their committee, which was »p pointed to reside there for his assistance, and to Cohosh the affairs in those parts. His lordship continues, "0i that committee, Sir Alexander Carew was one, a gentleman of good fortune in Cornwal, who served in parlumeat as knight for that county, and had, from the bet>D ning of the parliament, concurred in all conclusions *uh the most violent, with as full a testimony of that Zealand fury, to which their confidence was applied, as any nan.
