Did Thomas Culpeper have a brother called Thomas and was Catherine Howard pregnant?

Thank you so much to Sarah from the UK for her questions regarding Thomas Culpeper’s brothers and sisters, and whether he really had a brother called Thomas Culpeper.

Sarah also asked whether Catherine Howard had got pregnant before her marriage and whether she got pregnant during her marriage to Henry VIII. Could she even have been pregnant on the scaffold?

Back in 2012, I started a book on Catherine Howard’s fall – which I will finish one day – so I’ve done a lot of research on Culpeper and Catherine. Hear my answers to Sarah’s questions, as well as hearing more about the two Thomas Culpepers and rumours of Catherine’s pregnancy in 1541, in this video:
