    Castle Cary is situated in Somerset, twelve miles south east of Wells. There was a former stronghold known to have been fortified in the time of Saxons. About the year 1125, the Lord William Percival named 'Lovel the Wolf" erected strong fortifications at Kari from which the name is taken.
    Much of the time during the reign of King Steven (1135-1154) the Barons were divided into two parties, The Lord Kari being opposed to the King. He made so much trouble that Stephen turned his whole attention to Castle Kari and took it. In 1153, it was beseiged again and nearly ruined.
