John Carew (1622 1660), from Antony, Cornwall, was one of the regicides of King Charles I.
Elected MP for Tregony in 1647, he was a prominent member of the Fifth Monarchy Men who saw the overthrow of Charles I as a divine sign of the second coming of Jesus and the establishment of the millennium a thousand years of Christ's rule on earth. Like many of the other 59 men who signed the death warrant for Charles I he was in grave danger when Charles II of England was restored to the throne. Some of the 59 fled England but Carew was arrested, put on trial, and found guilty. He was hanged, drawn and quartered around 13 October 1660.
