Memorable Manitobans: Raymond Marwood-Elton Carey (1883-1975)

Architect.

Born at Guernsey, Channel Islands in 1883, son of Adolphus John Carey and Susan Frances Elton, he trained as an architect in Britain. He emigrated to the United States and was at Detroit, Michigan before coming to Winnipeg in 1909. He worked in partnership with John Woodman for about seven years, and designed several houses in the new Tuxedo suburb of Winnipeg. On 18 June 1913, Carey married Dorothy Claire Heubach (1894-1969), daughter of Frederick W. Heubach, at Winnipeg and they had four children: Barbara Claire Carey (1914-1968, wife of Franklin T. Syme), Honor Carey (1916-1998, wife of Peter Baily), Hugh Campbell Carey (?-?), and John Elton Carey (?-?). The couple moved to Detroit around 1921 and divorced in the 1930s, with Claire later marrying Winnipeg lawyer H. R. Drummond-Hay. Carey continued to work as an architect at Detroit until around 1937 when he returned to London, England. In 1947, he married again. He died at London on 20 August 1975.
