  • Notes 
    • Margaret (or Eleanor) Spencer (14721536) was the daughter of Sir Robert Spencer, of Spencer Combe in the parish of Crediton, Devon,[1] by his wife Lady Eleanor Beaufort, the daughter of Edmund Beaufort, 2nd Duke of Somerset and Lady Eleanor Beauchamp.

      Marriage and issue

      In 1490 she married Sir Thomas Carey, of Chilton Foliat, in Wiltshire, second son of Sir William Cary (1437-1471) of Cockington, Devon, by his second wife Alice (or Anna) Fulford,[2] a daughter of Sir Baldwin Fulford (d.1476) of Great Fulford, Devon.[3] They had eight children:

      Sir John Carey, of Plashey (14911552), married Joyce Denny (14951559). She was the daughter of Sir Edmund Denny, of Cheshunt by his second wife, Mary Troutbeck.
      Anne Carey (14931550)
      William Carey (15001528), Gentleman of the Privy Chamber and Esquire of the Body to King Henry VIII of England, married Mary Boleyn. It is thought that shortly after the marriage, Henry VIII began an affair with Mary, and around this time she gave birth to two children whose parentage is questioned by historians, Henry Carey, 1st Baron Hunsdon and Catherine Carey. If they were Margaret's biological grandchildren, then her descendants include Charles Darwin, Winston Churchill, Elizabeth II and Diana, Princess of Wales.
      Margaret Carey (14961560)
      Eleanor Carey (died after 1528). She was a nun at Wilton Abbey.
      Daughter Carey. She was a nun at Wilton Abbey.
      Edward Carey (14981560)
      Mary Carey (15011560), married John Delaval, Sheriff of Northumberland (14931562).
