    "Francis Moore IV, Esq., (1625-1698), of Fawley, of
    London, Barrister-at-Law, m. in 1655, Mary, daughter of
    Edward Cary, Esq., of Torr Abbey, co. Devon, and Mary,

    of the Rt. Hon. Christopher Villiers, (d. 1624), Baron
    Villiers of Daventry, co. Northampton, and Earl of
    Anglesey, gentleman of the horse to King James I, and
    brother of the Rt. Hon. Sir John Villiers, Knight,
    Viscount Purbeck, and of his Grace, George Villiers, K.
    G., Lord High-Admiral and Duke of Buckingham, (d.
    1628), the famous minister of King James I, sons of Sir
    George Villiers, (d. 1625), Knight, of Brokesby co.
    Leicester, and Mary Beaumont, (d. 1632), Countess of
    Buckingham in her own right, his (2nd) wife, descend-
    ants of Sir John Villiers, Knight, of Brokesby, (temp.

    Issue. 1-Francis V, of Westminster, later of St. Mar-
    tin-in-the-fields, (1656-1679), letters of Administra-
    tion granted his father, Francis Moore, Esq., Bar-
    rister-at_Law, June 21, 1679. 2-John. 3-Thomas. 4-Anne,
    Burke No. 1, No. 5, No. 8 supra. Valuable family papers
    owned by Mrs. Sophronia Moore Horner. Probate Records,
    London.
    NOTE. This distinguished family of Villiers is now
    represented in England by the Earldoms of Jersey and
    Clarendon. When John Villiers, grandson of Robert
    Wright, alias Howard, the illegitimate son of Frances,
    the reputed wife of John, Viscount Purbeck, assumed the
    Earldom of Buckingham and claimed the last Duke's
    estates, Elizabeth, Countess of Castlehaven, Lady
    Frances Brudenell and Mrs. Mary Cary, petitioned as
    lawful heirs of the Duke of Buckingham, that a clause
    be inserted in the bill for the sale of his Graces's
    estates, giving them the surplusage produced by the
    said sale, beyond the just debts. At Torr Abey is a
    valuable pedigree drawn up by the Herald's College at
    the express order of Queen Anne Boleyn. It begins thus:
    'This pedigree contains a brief of the most ancient
    family and surname of the Caryes of Carye in the coun-
    ties of Devon and it shows how the family was connected
    with the noble houses of Beaufort, Beauchamp, Spencer,
    Somerset, Bryan, Fulfort, Orchard, Halway, etc.'
    Edward Cary, Esq., son of Sir George Cary, Knight, Lord
    Lieutenant of Ireland, was descended from Sir William
    Cary, k. at Tewksbury in 1471, from whom also sprang
    the noble houses of Hunsdon and Falkland. The common
    ancestor and founder of all the above distinguished
    lines of Cary was Sir Adam de Karry, of Castle Karry,
    co. Somerset, recorded in Doomsday-Book as of the year
    1198."
