VII Sir John Cary
     Written of John "Sir John Cary was made a baron of the exchequer by King Richard II. In this post he continued many years, manifesting in all his actions an inflexible virtue and honesty. And indeed, it fell out at last that he had an extraordinary occasion laid before him, for the proof and tryal thereof: upon which he proved as true as steel, for the greatest dangers could not affright him from his duty and loyalty to his distressed master King Richard II, unto whom he faithfully adhered when most others had forsaken him; to his present loss indeed, but to his future eternal renown. For in the catastrophe of that king's reign, he reverend judge, unable and unwilling to bow, did freely and confidently speak his mind. He opposed the proceedings for procurators, in regard to his oath, to take King Richard's resignation, his true and undoubted sovereign. This cause him pursued with so much zeal and earnestness, that at the entrance of Henry IV into the English crown, he was by that prince banished his country and his goods and lands were confiscated."

This challenge Sir Robert Cary accepted: between whom a cruel encounter and a long and doubtful combat was waged, in Smithfield, London. Sir Robert Cary vanquished the presumptuous Arragon; for which King Henry V restored unto him good part of his father's lands, which for his loyalty to King Richard II, he had been deprived of by King Henry IV."
