- ↑ The order of birth of the children of James Cary and his second wife Anne née Dabson, is probably exactly the same order as James makes in his will,S1 when he writes: "... and to my said children James Cary[,] Anne Mitchell[,] Elizabeth Hampton[,] Jane[,] Mary[,] Robert and Edith Cary ...." He refers to James as "my now eldest sonn James Cary". Anne and Elizabeth are already married with children by the time their father wrote his will (21 Oct 1694). While the remaining four children he mentions together as a separate group: "my fower children Jane[,] Mary[,] Robert and Edith Cary", and implies they were then all under the age of twenty-one. This would mean they would all four have to have been born after the 21st of October 1673, which was exactly 21 years before James wrote his will. And in the case of Edith Cary, as we presume her to be the youngest child of all, she would have been born after her brother, Robert Cary. And, assuming he is the "Robart (sic) Cary" son of "James Cary" and "Ann", christened on 17 Nov 1675 at St. Augustine Watling Street, London - as found on the I.G.I.,S2 then Edith likely was born after 1675.
