    The Tudor period usually refers to the period between 1485 and 1603, specifically in relation to the history of England; this was the period when the Tudor dynasty ruled. Its first monarch was Henry VII (1457– 1509). The term is often used more broadly to include Elizabeth I's reign (1558– 1603), although this is often treated separately as the Elizabethan era.

    Catherine Carey daughter of Mary Boleyn and William Carey was born about 1524. It is believed that she is the product of her mother's affair with Henry VIII but he never recognized her as such. She was Maid of Honor to Anne of Cleves and Catherine Howard. She married Sir Francis Knollys on 4/26/1540. Once Elizabeth became queen she was appointed Chief Lady of the Bedchamber.
