On Sunday 7th May 1536, five days after the arrest of his mistress the queen, William Latymer, was searched at Sandwich in Kent.
Queen Anne Boleyn’s chaplain had just arrived back in England from a trip to Flanders on the Queen’s business, buying books on the Continent for her. The Mayor and Jurates of Sandwich wrote to King Henry VIII informing him of their search of Latymer’s belongings and you can read that letter in my article from last year – click here.
