Biographical or historical data
The Cary family arrived in Virginia when Miles Cary (1623-1667) of Bristol, England, immigrated to Warwick County about 1645, establishing the family home at "The Forest." Miles Cary's grandson, Henry Cary (ca. 1675-1749) moved to Henrico County in 1730, establishing his home "Ampthill" south of the James River in that part of Henrico County which became Chesterfield County. His son Archibald Cary (1721-1787) extended the family holdings in Chesterfield County and into Buckingham, Cumberland, Albemarle, and Goochland Counties. He extended the Cary family manufacturing concerns to include not just the family mill, but also a furnace and foundry. Cary held offices in county government, including justice of the peace, and he served in the Virginia conventions of 1775 and 1776. A friend of George Washington, Cary supported the colonial cause during the Revolution with his time and money. Cary served as speaker of the Virginia Senate from 1776 to his death in 1787.
