In this Village, in a cottage which has now dis appeared, William Carey saw the light, 17th August, He was the first-born of five children, William, Ann, Mary, Thomas, and Elizabeth. Elizabeth, who bore her mother's name, died in infancy. The father, Edmund Carey — a short, dotty man — was a weaver, but succeeded to the united ofi'ices of village school master and parish clerk when his son William was about six years old. School-house and master's house stood end to end, with a bit of playground in front, In which grew two wide-spreading planes. The school forms were small trees, sawn down the middle, the flat side smoothed and turned upward, resting on legs as primi tive as the body. The old man lived to complete his eightieth year, in honest repute among his neighbours for' the strictest integrity and uprightness, a lover of good men, and a great reader. A gravestone In the churchyard recorded his death, June 15th, 1816.
