Cary-Estes Genealogy by May Folk Webb and Patrick Mann Estes

Originally published in 1939, reissued 1979. 249 pages, hardcover

Price: $90

This is a limited reprint (500 copies) of the 1939 book by M.F. Webb and P.M. Estes. It covers the Cary and Estes families from Renaissance Italy and England and colonial America up to 1939.

This reprint includes all the text of the first edition, just as it originally appeaered. The coats of arms are printed on the front and back of the dust jacket, rather than bound in with the text, so that those who wish can have them framed. It also includes a brief "errata" section at the end. These are corrections to the original, based on research by Helen Estes Seltzer and information provided by family members. Some of these seemingly minor details are very important in establishing your eligibility for membership in such organizations as the Daughters of the American Revolution and the Colonial Dames.

Published in 1981, hardcover

This limited first edition (500 copies) complements the 1939 book by M.F. Webb and P.M. Estes -- The Cary-Estes Genealogy (ISBN 0931968003). It brings the family history up to the present and includes substantial information on Moore family ancestors as well. The coats of arms are printed on the front and back of the dust jacket, rather than bound in with the text, so that those who wish can have them framed. Historical Highlights:

A descendant of mayors of Bristol, England, Miles Cary settled in Windmill Point, VA, in about 1645. His son Henry and grandson Henry, Jr., were prominent builders in Williamsburg, VA, responsible for the construction of the Governor's Palace, the House of Burgesses, and other key buildings. One of their descendants, Sarah Langhorne Bates, married Joel Estes, a captain in the War of 1812, providing the link between the Cary family and the Estes.

The Estes family descends form the d'Este, dukes of Ferrara in Renaissance Italy. they were prominent as patrons of the epic poets Ariosto and Tasso.

The first Estes of record in America, Abraham, owned 200 acres in King and Queen County, VA, in 1704. His grandson Benjamin married Cecelia Rebecca Thorp, connecting the Estes family with the historical Tripletts and Masseys of Virginia. Benjamin's son Joel, mentioned above, migrated to Tennessee in 1819. Many prominent Tennesseans, including the Rices, the Folks, the Manns, the Walkers, and senator and vide-presidential candidate Estes Kefauver number among his descendants.

Scottish in origin, the Moore familyi has played an important role in protestantism in America, producing founders of the Methodist Church in America, presidents of Methodist colleges, and many circuit-riding preachers for rural Tennessee. In addition to Estes and Cary, other prominent families connected with the Moores include Yates, Smith, Hill, Leak, Terry, and Crawfod, all of which originated in North Carolina and migrated to Tennessee in the early 1800s.
