In 1529,Piers Butler was forced to give up the title of 8th Earl of Ormond,which he assumed in 1515 and the title was granted to Sir Thomas Boleyn.In place of the Earldom of Ormonde,Piers received the title of Earl of Ossory instead;the subsidiary title held by the Earls of Ormond.Why would the King force Piers to give his title up?

Hitcham screen, north side - The chancel is so grand, some visitors must easily overlook the remains of the rood screen.Only the dado survives,but it is worth a look because instead of saints the panels depict angels holding the instruments of the Passion. Something similar can be seen at Blundeston,and there are also angels on the screen at Southwold.They are very unusual,and,not surprisingly, were vandalised by the 16th century reformers.What is surprising is that they have survived at all.
All Saints, Hitcham: It was the Priory of Ely's most valuable living in the whole of the county, worth twice as much as any other.This situation continued when the patronage was taken over by the state after the Reformation,and Rector of Hitcham remained a lucrative postion into the 20th Century. John Whytewell,Rector throughout the Reformation,was chaplain to Thomas Cranmer; although,unlike that stubborn character,he received a royal pardon from Mary.

Thomas Cromwell, 1st Earl of Essex was an English lawyer and statesman who served as chief minister to King Henry VIII of England from 1532 to 1540. Cromwell was one of the strongest advocates of the English Reformation. He helped engineer an annulment of the Kings marriage to Catherine of Aragon, so that Henry could marry his mistress Anne Boleyn.
Thomas Cromwell, by Hans Holbein the Younger. It seems that Cromwell's distrust acted as a brake on Thomas Bromley's career. His judicial promotion and property speculation both forged ahead as Cromwell's power came to an end.

Thomas Cromwell, 1st Earl of Essex (1485-1540), Hans Holbein, 1532/3, oil on oak panel. English lawyer, King Henry VIII's chief minister 1532-1540. Powerful advocate of the English Reformation, engineered annulment of Henry's marriage to Catherine of Aragon, making way for Anne Boleyn. His own downfall came with the Anne of Cleves marriage, which he hoped would breathe fresh life into the Reformation, instead it was disaster, ending in annulment, and his own execution.
Sir Thomas Bromley (died 1555) was an English judge of Shropshire landed gentry origins who came to prominence during the Mid-Tudor period. After occupying important judicial posts in the Welsh Marches, he won the favour of Henry VIII and was a member of Edward VI's regency council. He was appointed Chief Justice of the King's Bench by Mary I.
A claim to fame of the Beauchamp family in the later middle ages is that one branch became Earls of Warwick, through marriage to the female heir to that title. That line eventually died out in the male line and the title was passed on through the female line to the Neville family. A daughter of Richard Neville married King Richard III and the rest, as they say, is history. The genealogy of the Earls of Warwick is recorded on the famous Rous Roll, two copies of which survive...

The Hall at Theobalds-The Favourite Residence of James I - At Theobalds during the years between about 1575 and 1585 Lord Burghley, a self-confessed garden enthusiast, introduced descending stairways, loggias painted with genealogies, a summer house decorated with 'twelve Roman emperors in white marble' and an equally classical motif of a fishpond. The compilers of the Parliamentary Survey in 1650 seem particularly insistent upon the movement up and down between various sections of the garden: '

Carlisle Castle - In 1541 Henry VIII closed the priory and the 2 friaries. He also rebuilt and strengthened the castle. Henry replaced the southern gate of Carlisle with a citadel with 2 towers.
