Posted By Claire on May 7, 2022
On 7th May 1536, one of Queen Anne Boleyn’s chaplain, William Latymer, was stopped and searched on his arrival back in England from the Continent.
Why was he searched?
What had been his business abroad?
What was found in his possession?
And what happened to him?
And a year earlier, on 7th May 1535, after a year of imprisonment in awful conditions at the Tower of London, John Fisher, former Bishop of Rochester, was visited at the Tower of London. There, he was tricked into saying something that would lead to his brutal end.
