    Sir Francis Knollys's Latin dictionary: new evidence for Katherine Carey
    by Sally Varlow
    in Historical Research
    A Latin dictionary once owned by Sir Francis Knollys has come to light containing his records of his marriage to Katherine Carey, daughter of Mary Boleyn, and the births of their fourteen children. These previously unpublished details (here transcribed) strengthen the argument that Katherine was an illegitimate child of Henry VIII, born during his affair with Anne Boleyn's sister. Sir Francis's handwritten notes also reveal his wife's remarkably successful series of pregnancies; and the birth date of his daughter Lettice ? branded a 'she-wolf' by Elizabeth I ? who turns out to be younger than is usually claimed when she married Robert Dudley, earl of Leicester...
    ...There is also, they state, 'a plausible resemblance between the sitter and the effigy of Lady Knollys' in Rotherfield Greys church.
    ?Sally Varlow has discovered new evidence that Penelope Devereux was a direct descendant of Henry VIII. Penelope?s grandmother was the love-child of the king and Mary Boleyn?
    Her portrait was painted by Steven van der Meulen early in 1562, when she was pregnant with her last child.
    There is a portrait which may be of Catherine Carey by the painter Steven van der Meulen, c.1562 (I think the identity of the sitter is still up for debate?). According to an article by Sally Varlow entitled ?Sir Francis Knollys?s Latin dictionary: new evidence for Katherine Carey?, the painting was one of several Knollys family portraits that were sold at Sotheby?s in 1974 and the portrait is now part of the Mellon Collection held by the Yale Centre for British Art, New Haven, Conn., U.S.A.
