William Wilfred Carey
Educated at Elizabeth College, 1868-72 - College No. 1723.
During the Great War he was active in Scotland in raising several
contingents for service in France, and commanded the Dunbar Home Guards
up to its disbandment in Jan. 1919.
His remaining years were dedicated to that of collecting and publishing
the Records of the Family of Carey of Guernsey. He died in 1929 regrettably
before the completion of the book and left instructions in his will
that the papers be handed to Mrs Edith Frances Carey (Hg9).
Due to her many other ties devoted to researching innumerable passages
of Guernsey History, she too, died in 1935 after collating and adding
much needed information to the Carey records.
The work was completed by Spencer Carey Curtis and published in 1938.
