John Carey

John was familiarly known as 'of Choisi', a house at the top of the Grange, Guernsey.

He was elected Jurat of the Royal Court on 30 June 1772, and was sworn in on the following 29 Aug. Owing to a dispute having arisen between the Bailiff, William le Marchant, and the Jurats concerning the suspension by the Bailiff of an Advocate, Pierre de Havilland, the Jurats resigned in body. An Order-in-Council of 17 May 1776 directed that their resignations be accepted, and that '..... and John Carey, be dismissed from their office and that an election for ten new Jurats be made without delay.' The election took place on 15 June. All the Jurats who had been dismissed were re-elected, however the Bailiff refused to swear them in. An Order-in-Council of 12th July ordered him to do so, but John and three others refused to be sworn in, and were dismissed finally by Order-in-Council of 19 Mar 1777.
