Probably rebuilt the Great Hall at Beddington. Founder of the Carew Chapel in St. Mary's Beddington and was there interred after death on 24 May 1520.
Governor of Calais in the reigns of King Henry VII and King Henry VIII.
His wife Malyn, whose death is one of the earliest to be recorded in the Church Registers, survived him, and the monument to their memory, standing on the South side of the Carew chapel, does not record the date of her death. It was during the time of Richard Carew that the chapel itself was built.
"The Carew Chapel. This beautiful addition on the South side of the chancel was built about the beginning of the 15th century by the Carew family to serve as a mortuary chapel. Below is the vault in which members of the family were buried. This has now been sealed up."
"The table tomb of Sir Richard Carew and his wife Malyn. Sir Richard who had been Governor of Calais, died in 1520 and the tomb was erected before his wife?s death, the date of which (1544) is left blank in the inscription."

Sheriff of Surrey.
Sir Richard Carew, father of Sir Nicholas, was created by Henry VII a knight-banneret at the battle of Bleakheath [Blackheath, 1497], and was sheriff of Surrey in 1501.
Richard never reached a very prominent position at court, but he was able to find the money for a substantial building programme. He is known to have enlarged the deer park, and is a possible builder of the magnificent hammer beam roof over the Great Hall. His ambitions for his son, another Nicholas, may have provided some justification for the structure, as he had managed to have him brought up at court with the young Henry and could reasonably expect that he would profit enormously from the connection in later life. Richard's hopes in this direction were for a long time justified.
