The CARY family of Follaton, near Totnes was a junior branch of the (then extinct) CARY family of Torr Abbey. There appear to be at least two CARY families in Ireland with connection to the Devonshire CARYs. Admiral Arthur William Jerningham was born on 26 February 1807 and was the son of William Charles Jerningham and Anne Wright. He married Sophia Mary Margaret O'Ferrall-Caddell, daughter of Richard O'Ferrall-Caddell and Paulina Southwell, on 19 April 1836. He died on 24 November 1889 at age 82.
