Sir Richard Carew 1469-1520
I'd like to know a bit more about Sir Richard Carew. I am interested in Henry VIII's 1513 invasion of France and believe Carew was captain of Calais at that time though some sources state that he 'accompanied Henry' - does that mean literally, as in he wasn't in Calais already?
I also know that he was in the middle ward during that campaign in command of the artillery, his personal retinue and 1000 men - would these have been from the Calais garrison? would they have marched under his standard or was there a specific standard for the garrison?
That's about it, could anyone add anything else about Carew, his life, background and particularly with respect to his military career.
