      Oh good that's excellent then corraboration that there was an extra
      Sir Peter Carew. If he was a full brother of George Carew, Earl of
      Totnes, then their mother was Anne Harvey, who is of royal blood, and
      the father George Carew, Dean of Bristol is also of royal blood.

      I don't yet know who Peter's wife may have been, but his daughter Anne
      "heiress of her father" had been married firstly to some William
      Wilford and then after William's death she went to live with her uncle

      Meanwhile her future husband Allen Apsley, left school and moved to
      London to get some small appointment at Queen Bess' court. He went to
      Cadiz with the Earl of Essex in 1596 and then apparently to Ireland
      for something or other.

      It was something in this time, when he met the young Anne Carew,
      already a widow. I don't know yet who this William Wilford might be.

      You can find the answers to your questions about the two Sir Peter
      Carews (and their wives) in a Carew pedigree in Vivian's edition of
      the Visitations of Devon, available on-line at the BYU Library
      website. Leo is correct: The Sir Peter Carew whose daughter married
      [the elder] Sir Alan Apsley was a cousin of the other Sir Peter Carew
      who married Margaret Skipwith and died without issue. This latter Sir
      Peter Carew named the other Sir Peter Carew, his cousin, among his

      But there may be other problems in these connections. What evidence
      is there that Isabella Apsley, mother of the Earl of Strafford, was a
      daughter of the elder Sir Alan Apsley and not his son also Sir Alan?

      On the south wall of the chancel is a monument of alabaster,with the effigies of the deceased and his lady in kneeling attitudes,to the memory of Sir George Hervey, Knt. (fn. 45), Lieutenant of the Tower, who died in 1605; and near it another, with the effigies of the deceased, recumbent, to the memory of Anne, his sister (fn. 46),wife of George Carew, Esq. (fn.47) (third son of Edmund Baron of Carew,) who died the same year. (fn 47)

      He died in 1583. They had issue,1. Sir Peter Carew, Knt. slain in Ireland in 1580. He married Audrey, daughter of William Gardener, Esq. of Buckinghamshire, and had issue Peter, who died young,and Anne, his daughter and heir, married,first to Sir Thomas Wilford, Knt. and afterwards to Sir Allen Apsley. 2. Sir George Carew, Lord President of Ireland,and Governor of Munster under Queen Elizabeth; created Baron Carew of Clopton,and afterwards Earl of Totness. He married Joyce, daughter and coheir of William Clopton, of Clopton in the county of Warwick. 3. Mary, married to Walter Dowrishe, Esq., died in 1604. 4. Elizabeth, who died in her infancy. The monument was erected by George Lord Carew.

      Near this is a monument with the effigies of the deceased as large as life, in a recumbent posture, leaning on her left hand; to the memory of Anne lady Carew, with this inscription:
