Carey, Charles Stokes an English Congregational minister, was born in London, Sept. 17,1828. He was religiously disposed from childhood, joined the Church in 1845, entered Hackney College in 1849 to prepare for the ministry, and was ordained at Bassingbourne in 1853, where he remained three years. He afterwards preached successively at Harwich, Bungay, and Leytonstone, and died at the last-named place, June 8,1875. Mr. Carey was an able, forcible, fluent, and thoroughly evangelical preacher. His sermons were well thought out, his extensive reading and retentive memory gave him much facility and illustration, and he always preached without notes. See (Lond.) Cong. Year-book, 1876, p. 322.
