    If you look, you can see they were written and published in 2009, before the current investigation we carried out into whether he was knighted. Also, the result of the investigation was that historian Leanda de Lisle found that Henry Norris held the position of Black Rod, an office of the Order of the Garter, in 1526 and this position was only open to knights so he was in fact knighted. See Leanda’s comments under
    Hope that helps!
