George Carey (c. 1541–1616)
Sir George Cary (or Carey) (c. 1541 – 15 February 1616), of Cockington in Devon, was an English administrator and Member of Parliament who held various offices in Ireland. He was treasurer-at-war to the Earl of Essex's campaign in Ireland in 1599, and was appointed a Lord Justice in September 1599 (when Essex left the country) and again in 1603 (on Lord Mountjoy's departure). He was Lord Deputy of Ireland from May 1603 to February 1604. He had earlier served as Member of Parliament for Dartmouth (in the Parliament of 1586) and Devon (in that of 1588).
Cary should not be confused with his near namesake Sir George Carew, later Earl of Totnes, who also held posts in Ireland at the same period.
