Thank you so much to Natalie Grueninger for sharing some wonderful news from Philip Norman, curator of the Garden Museum at Lambeth which used to be St Mary’s Church and which is home of the Howard Chapel, resting place of many Howard family members, including Elizabeth Boleyn (née Howard), Countess of Wiltshire and mother of Queen Anne Boleyn.
Philip’s news is that he has identified the ledger stone which once marked the resting place of Elizabeth Boleyn in the Howard Chapel, now the museum’s gift shop. It is such good news and you can read more about it in Natalie’s article A Tudor Discovery: The Ledger Stone of Elizabeth Boleyn.
