Owen TUDOR (Sir)

Died: 4 Feb 1461, beheaded

Notes: a Welsh soldier and courtier, directly descended from the Lord Rhys but remembered only because of his role in founding the Tudor dynasty and for his relationship with Catherine of Valois, widow of King Henry V of England. He was assigned to her service after the King's death, when Catherine, being French and therefore distrusted, was removed from court and denied any part in the upbringing of her son, the infant King Henry VI. She and Owen are sometimes said to have been secretly married, though there is no documentary evidence of this. They certainly had at least five children, including Jasper and Edmund Tudor, who would father the future King Henry VII. As a man of advanced years, Owen fought for the Lancastrians at the Battle of Mortimer's Cross, following which he was beheaded along with other prisoners. It is said that he expected a reprieve because of his relationship with the former royal family, and that he did not believe he would die until the collar was ripped off his doublet by the executioner - at which point he is alleged to have said that "the head which used to lie in Queen Catherine's lap, would now lie in the executioner's basket".

Buried: St David's Cathedral, Wales

Notes: born either at Much Hadham Palace in Hertfordshire or at Hadham in Bedfordshire, an older son of Owen Tudor and Catherine of Valois. It is not known for certain whether he was born legitimately after his parents were secretly married. Whatever the case, his mother died in 1437, but his half-brother, King Henry VI recognised him, creating him Earl of Richmond in 1452. In 1455, he married Margaret Beaufort, a daughter of the legitimised John Beaufort, Duke of Somerset. She was twelve years old at the time, and became pregnant in the following year. However, with the beginnings of the Wars of the Roses, Richmond was captured by the Yorkist Herbert family. They imprisoned him at Carmarthen Castle in south Wales, where he caught the plague and died. Henry, his only child, was born more than two months after his death.

Ethelreda (Audrey) TUDOR

Born: ABT 1525

Died: AFT 1555

Notes: The birth of Ethelreda, also called Audrey and Esther, born in the late 1520's, is controversial and often questioned. Those who argue that she was illegitimate daughter of Henry VIII says that Henry´s tailor, John Malte (d. 1547), was persuaded to recognize Ethelreda as his illegitimate daughter. His mother, Joan Dingley or Dyngley was a royal laundress, and therefore a lowborn woman to secure up her daughter's endorsement by the King. Joan Dingley apparently took no part in the life of her daughter and she married a man named Dobson at some point after birth. As for John Malte, he received a sizeable grant of land from the King in 1541, including the manors of Watchenfeld and Offyngton in Berkshire, and another, with Ethelreda, in 1546. Malte's will is dated 10 Sep 1546 and was proved 7 Jun 1547. In it he calls EthelredaAwdrey Malte, my bastard daughter, begotten on the body of Joane Dingley, now wife of one Dobson”. Malte’s will left £20 “to Joan Dyngley, otherwise Joane Dobson”. At some point between Sep 1546 and 11 Nov 1547, Ethelreda married John Harington of Stepney. At that time he was in the service of Thomas Seymour, Lord Seymour of Sudeley. Ethelreda and John had one child, a daughter they named Hester. In 1554, Ethelreda was one of Elizabeth Tudor’s attendants during the princess's incarceration in the Tower of London. Ethelreda was still living in Oct 1555, when she settled Kelston on her husband. Her death occurred before 1 Apr 1559. Harrington inherited all the lands Henry VIII had granted her.
