One of her attendants was Anne Wyatt, to who she was seen to whisper something as she knelt. A message she sent earlier on her execution day no one dared to mention to the King. Anne’s message to Henry VIII through Anne Wyatt was "Commend me to his Majesty, and tell him he has ever been constant in his career of advancing me. From a private gentlewoman he made me a marchioness, from a marchioness a Queen. And now he has left me no higher degree of honour, he gives me my innocence the crown of martyrdom". (N B Morrison).

Edward WYATT

Notes: Date of birth untraced. On 21 Jan 1554 he was present among relatives, friends and neighbours called to a meeting at Allington Castle to discuss the date for the insurrection. On 24 Jan he is listed among the principal leaders and gentry of the neighbourhood who slept on the floor of the hall of Allington Castle, ready for the assembly at Penenden Heath, Boxley the next day. At 25 Jan accompanied Sir Thomas on the march to London, and surrendered at Ludgate Hill with about 60 other rebels and was taken to the Tower. Bishop Gardiner referred to him as "one little Wyatt" who might be usefully interrogated, (presumably on the rack), to see if he knew anything of Sir Thomas’ relations with Princess Elizabeth. Gardiner’s exact words to Sir William Petre, Governor of the Tower, were: "Whether ye press him to say the truth by sharp punishment or promise of life". On 19 Feb Thomas Cobham and little Edward Wyatt were sentenced to be hanged, drawn and quartered.
