Carew, Thomas, poet, was born in 1589, and studied at Oxford. His wit and vivacity made him a favourite at Court, and he was considerably eulogised by Ben Jonson, Davenant, and other litterateurs of the period. His productions were chiefly masques and lyrics, his best known being Caelum Britannicum, which was performed by the king and nobles at Whitehall on Shrove Tuesday of 1633. Carew died in 1639.
