      Mistresses of Henry VIII

      In 1518, Henry tried Elizabeth "Bessie" Blount, the daughter of a Shropshire knight. Bessie was eighteen years old at the time, and was said to be a real beauty. In the summer of 1519, Bessie gave birth to Henry's son. The child, Henry Fitzroy was raised as the son of her husband, Gilbert Tailboys at Rokeby Manor in Warwickshire. Gilbert Tailboys married Elizabeth Blount on June 1519. Bessie's second husband was Lord Clinton, Earl of Lincoln. Henry FitzRoy was given a dowry. Henry, Jr. died of tuberculosis in his teens.

      Another mistress was Lady Elizabeth Fitzwalter (Henry's second cousin) who married Robert Fitzwalter.

      Mary Boleyn, who Francois I, of France, dubbed "whore" was Henry's next love interest. He married her to: William Carey and she became Lady in Waiting to Catherine of Aragon. Their affair lasted two years.

      Some think that Henry might have fathered one of her children. However, Henry never acknowledged her children as his. Mary Boleyn married (1) William Cary, the son of Thomas Cary of Chilton and Margaret Spencer (a descent of Edward III). William was born c. 1495 and died on June 22, 1528. (2) Sir William Stafford was born c. 1512 and died June 22, 1528.

      Children of William Carey were:

      .....(A). Catherine Mary Carey who was born c. 1524 and died on January 15, 1569 in Hampton Court Palace. She was buried in Westminster Abbey on April 1569. Catherine Mary Carey married (1) Sir Frances Knolly, the son of Robert Knolly and Lettice Pennystone (1514-July 19, 1596).

      .....(B). Henry Carey, Baron Hunsdon, was born March 4, 1526, and died July 23, 1596 at Somerset House. Henry's marriage contract on May 21, 1545 was to Ann Morgan, daughter of Sir Thomas Morgan and Anne Whitney.

      A child of Sir William Stafford was born about 1534 and died before they could be named.
