I'm going to be on vacation for the next three weeks. I'll have access to the internet on and off, so I will try to keep up with any posts or comment approvals that come through, but there might be a delay. Thanks for your understanding!

Question from Sara - Portrait of Catherine Carey


I was wondering if there are any portraits of Catherine Carey, Elizabeth I's cousin. I can't find any online. Thanks.



Question from Victoria - Sleeping arrangements for Maids of Honor


What were the sleeping arrangments for 'maids of honor'? Were private rooms provided for each? If not would these young (and not so young) women share a large bed, as is depicted in so much fiction about the time period? I realize that situations would've changed as the individual became more 'senior' and with moves from place to place. Thanks!



Question from Jessica - More info on Boleyn and Howard families


I am very interested in the life of Anne Boleyn and as one of the sections of my work i am looking at her relationships with her family. However, I am struggling to get some of the events in Mary Boleyn's life into chronolgical order as different sources tend to present them in different orders.

I would very much like to know where to look for information on George and Mary Boleyn, as well the the Howard family generally.

But on a more immediate note would like to know the dates of Mary's relationship with the king and her marriage to Will Carey to get the relationship in better perpective.

Thanks
