Carey, Arthur

Carey, Arthur a minister of the Protestant Episcopal Church, was born near London, England, June 26, 1822. When he was eight years of age his family removed to New York City. In 1836 he joined the sophomore class of Columbia College, and graduated in 1839. In October of that year he entered the General Theological Seminary, N.Y., and graduated in 1842. He was admitted to the order of deacon, July 2,1843. His ordination proceeded, however, under protest, as two of his examiners declared their conviction that he held views radically at variance with Protestantism. The ordination was subsequently the source of earnest debate, and called forth a large number of pamphlets. In September of the same year he was invited to become assistant pastor of the Church of the Annunciation, New York city, which he subsequently accepted. In December he was attacked by a violent fever; when he had somewhat recovered, he embarked with his father for Cuba, March 23, 1844, but died on shipboard, near Havana, April 4, following. See Sprague, Annals of the Amer. Pulpit, v, 799.
