    George Boleyn was Anne Boleyn's brother, and is best known for being accused of incest with her.

    Jane and George Boleyn did not have a son. There is no contemporary mention of them having children. This rumour comes from the later prominience of George Boleyn, dean of Lichfield, who was probably a distant cousin.If they had had a son, he would have inherited the titles of earl of Ormonde and earl of Wiltshire. Instead, the inheritance went to the crown since there were no male heirs left from Thomas and Elizabeth Boleyn, and Henry passed the funds along to Mary Boleyn.
