  • Note:

    Accused of treason and executed - one of the last tyrannical acts of Henry VIII.
    His son Thomas was Duke of Norfolk (d 30 Sep 1572).
    Was known as the Poet Earl and is recognised as having greater influence over the subsequent development of English verse than any other man in history. He first composed sonnets in what is now widely called the Shakespearean style, and left us the first use of blank verse in his translation of Virgil's Aeneid.  Surrey was executed for his supposed opposition to Henry VIII after his own father testified against him!  He was beheaded two days prior to the King's death on January 21st 1547.  Surrey's father, also awaiting execution on the 24th was reprieved.
    Moved to Framlingham in 1614.
