     Sir Francis Knollys Knt., KG, of Rotherfield Greys, co. Oxford lived at Rotherfield Greys, Oxfordshire, England.8

; per van de Pas: [quote] His father had been an usher to the Chamber under King Henry VII and King Henry VIII. Sir Francis married Catherine Carey, daughter of Mary Boleyn and possibly Henry VIII. He attended on Anne of Cleves when she landed in England and later identified himself with militant Protestantism. His zeal for the new religion impressed both King Edward VI and Princess Elizabeth.

However when Mary Tudor became queen he left England. Princess Elizabeth wrote to him and his wife, looking forward to their safe return. He corresponded with Calvin and enrolled as a student at the University of Basle.

Upon the accession of Elizabeth I, he was appointed a Privy Councillor as well as Vice-Chamberlain of the Queen's household, his wife and her sister becoming gentlewomen of the Privy Chamber.

In 1559 he found a seat in Parliament through the patronage of Henry Fitzalan, 12th Earl of Arundel. In 1568 when Mary, Queen of Scots, arrived in England, Sir Francis Knollys, as he was by then, was sent north to take her into his custody at Bolton Castle.

In 1578 Robert Dudley, Earl of Leicester and favourite of Queen Elizabeth I, secretly married Sir Francis's daughter, Lettice. Sir Francis then forced them to marry a second time with himself as a witness, fearing that Leicester might disavow Lettice just as he had previously disavowed Douglas, Lady Sheffield. However, when Queen Elizabeth I found this out, she forbade Lettice ever again to come to court and even considered imprisoning Leicester in The Tower. [end quote]1 He was Treasurer to Queen Elizabeth.9 Sir Francis Knollys Knt., KG, of Rotherfield Greys, co. Oxford was also known as Sir Francis Knowles Knt., KG, of Rotherfield Greys, co. Oxford.2

Last Edited6 Oct 2020
     Katherine Carey was born circa 1524.7,1,2 She married Sir Francis Knollys Knt., KG, of Rotherfield Greys, co. Oxford, son of Robert Knollys of Rotherfield and Lettice Peynston, circa April 1540.8,9,10,1,2
Katherine Carey was buried after 15 January 1568 at St. Edmund's Chapel, Westminster Abbey, Westminster, City of Westminster, Greater London, England.2


Katherine Carey died on 15 January 1568/69 at Hampton Court Palace, London, City of London, Greater London, England.8,1,2
     She was Chief Lady of the Bedchamber to Queen Elizabeth.8

; per van de Pas: [quote] It is most likely, but not certain, that her father was King Henry VIII. An indication is that she was born in the midst of her mother's affaire with King Henry VIII, and a possessive Henry VIII would not have countenanced sharing the sexual favours of his mistress, even with her husband. He was far too possessive to have allowed this. Henry VIII required chastity from his sexual partners.

Henry VIII kept the existence of an illegitimate child a secret until acknowledgement might suit him. Henry Fitzroy was born in 1519 but there is no record of his existence until the king ennobled him in 1525. The facts of the doubly adulterous births of Henry VIII's children by Mary Boleyn, had they been acknowledged, would surely have later had manifold catastrophic effects. Most important of all, Henry VIII's legitimacy as King and Defender of the Faith would have been at least seriously compromised, very possibly destroyed.

As the Boleyns had fallen from favour in 1536, about November 1539 Catherine Carey was appointed a maid-of-honour to Anne of Cleves. By April/May 1540 she was married to Francis Knollys and they became the parents of eleven children.

Catherine died 15 January 1569 at Hampton Court Palace and was given what only can be described as a 'royal' funeral by the bereaved Queen Elizabeth I. She was buried in April 1569 in St.Edmund's Chapel, Westminster Abbey, at the queen's expense. [end quote]1

; per Faris (1999) p. 69: [quote] KATHERINE CAREY, was born about 1524 in the midst of her mother's affair with King Henry VIII, evidently the daughter of the latter, rather than of her mother's husband, William Carey [see TUDOR 3 for the ancestry of King HENRY VIII]. She was married about 1539 to FRANCIS KNOLLYS, Knt., K.G., of Caversham and Rotherfield Greys, co. Oxford, Knight of the Shire for Oxfordshire, son and heir of Robert Knollys, of Rotherfield Greys, by Lettice, daughter of Thomas Peynston, Knt., of Hawridge, co. Buckingham. He was born by 1512, and, having displayed bravery at fighting in Scotland at Pinkie, was knighted in September 1528. They had seven sons and four daughters. In 1533, after the accession of Queen Mary, he and his wife left for the Continent. In 1555 he was a student at Basle, and they resided thereafter at Frankfurt until the accession of his cousin Queen Elizabeth. He was Vice Chamberlain of the Household and Treasurer to the Household of Queen Elizabeth. She was Chief Lady of the Bedchamber to Queen Elizabeth. She died at Hampton Court, while in attendance on the Queen, on 15 Jan. 1568/9, and was buried at Queen Elizabeth's expense in the equivalent of a royal burial at St. Edmund's Chapel, Westminster Abbey. "Frauncys Knollys, K.G., of Caversham, Oxford" died testate (P.C.C., 67 Drake) on 19 July 1596.

; I may be breaking a record by replying to a post over two years after it was made, but I just ran across the reference I referred to earlier (regarding the earlier work in which I saw the Henry-Carey-as-son-of-Henry-VIII passage quoted). It appears on p. 324 of Paul Friedmann, "Anne Boleyn: A Chapter of English History 1527-1536" (London, 1884), vol. 2:
"There is still at the Record Office a paper containing the confession of a monk of Syon, in which the following passage occurs: 'Moreover, Mr. Skydmore did show me young master Care, saying that he was our sovereign lord the king's son, by our sovereign lady the queen's sister, whom the queen's grace might not suffer to be in the court.' [footnote: R. O. 26th, Henry VIII. Box Q, No. 127.]"

To give this come context, here's my original post (of 11 June 2001):

I'll have to look up the reference, but when I was still in high school (and thus some time before 1993) I read a biography of either Henry VIII or Anne Boleyn in which this information appeared.
>>>>>
>> Yes - Hoskins does say that "rumours regarding Henry Carey's royal paternity have long circulated...", and cites Complete Peerage vol.6, pp.627-8 (which mentions the possibility that Henry VIII was the father) and Gerald Paget, "The Lineage and Ancestry of H.R.H. Prince Charles..." (1977), vol.1, p.33 (which lists four possible illegitimate children of the king).



I recognize that Hoskins did not claim to be the first to suggest the paternity of Henry Carey. What I dispute it his apparent claim that his article represents the first quotation/discussion of the letter of the vicar of Isleworth mentioning "young master Carey."

I am fairly certain that I have read a more complete discussion of the actual letter before 1993, but the following reference will suffice to show that the letter was known and cited long before Hoskins' article:

"Next there was Mary Boleyn, since 1521 wife of William Carey....That Mary was at one time Henry's mistress, and this presumably after her marriage, is beyond doubt. [footnote: Friedmann, _Anne_Boleyn_ (1884), app. B -- which destroys Froude's attempt to exculpate Henry of this adultery.] Years later there was a strong rumour that she too had born Henry a son [footnote: In 1535 John Hale, vicar of Isleworth, said that a Brigettine of Sion once showed him 'young master Carey', saying that he was Henry's bastard. _L.P._, viii, 567.], but we cannot be sure." (J. J. Scarisbrick, _Henry_VIII_ (Berkeley: University of California Press, 1968), pp. 147-148).

>> I think Hoskins does claim to be the first to suggest that Henry Carey's sister Catherine was also a child of the king, though.

I'm fairly certain I've seen this claimed elsewhere and earlier as well, but I can't remember where .

     Mary Boleyn was born between 1500 and 1504 at Hever, co. Kent, England; van de Pas says b. Blickling, Norfolk.6,2 She married William Carey Esq., of Aldenham, Hertfordshire, son of Thomas Carey of Chilton Foliot, co. Wilts and Margaret Spencer, on 31 January 1520/21 at Aldenham, Hertfordshire, England; her 1st husband.7,1,8,2 Mary Boleyn married Sir William Stafford K.B., son of Humphrey Stafford Knt., of Blatherwick and Margaret Fogge, circa 1528 at Chebsey, Staffordshire, England; her 2nd husband; van de Pas says m. 1534.9,10,1,2
Mary Boleyn died on 19 July 1543 at Chebsey, Staffordshire, England.11,2
     ; Weis 22-37, 1-36.7

; per van de Pas: "Her father, Thomas Boleyn, could afford to become a courtier and had made a grand marriage when he married (Lady) Elizabeth Howard, daughter of a future Duke of Norfolk. Three children had been born, Mary, Anne and George. There had been a scandal about Lady Elizabeth Boleyn and her extra-marital activities.

Thomas Boleyn had sent Mary first to Brussels at the Court of Margaret of Austria, the ruler of The Netherlands, and later to the French Court where it was rumoured that Mary Boleyn had been the mistress of the French king, François I. After this Mary returned to the English Court.

Henry VIII had had a mistress, Elizabeth Blount, one of Queen Katherine's waiting women; and in 1519 Bessie Blount had borne a son. Then Henry VIII took Mary Boleyn as his mistress. However, this did not last for very long and Mary married William Carey, a man of moderate means and a fairly undistinguished member of the king's household.

William Carey is reputedly the father of the two children born while they were married but circumstantial evidence makes Henry VIII father of these two children. When William Carey died, she remarried Sir William Stafford. When Mary Boleyn died she was probably about thirty-eight years or so old."2
