Henry Brandon, Earl of Lincoln
« on: September 07, 2006, 04:31:54 PM »
Hey everyone, I was browsing around on this site http://www.geocities.com/tudorgenealogist/Suffolk.html and I was surprised to see that the author is of the opinion that Mary Rose and Charles Brandon had two sons called Henry.

"(1) HENRY BRANDON

He was born in 1516 and died about 1520/22.

(4) HENRY BRANDON, EARL OF LINCOLN

He was born around 1520/22 and he died in 1534. He was created Earl of Lincoln on June 18, 1525. There seem most likely to have been two boys both named Henry. The two have often been listed as one boy who was born in 1516 and who died in 1534. There is strong evidence that there were instead two boys by the name of Henry."

Anyone heard this before?

Nope! I can understand why they would have called both of them Henry though!

And don't forget that the marriage between Charles Brandon and Katherine Willoughby resulted in yet another Henry (and a Charles) ;)
