Cary Family

My maternal grandmother was a Crossman and a Cary. The Cary surname had been extensively documented back to 1170 to Adam DeKary. It has always been reported that he was the Master of Castle Kari in Sommerset, England, some documentation though puts him rather at Devon, England instead.
