Edmund Sheffield was George Boleyn’s ward for a short period of time. Because George was constantly at court or on diplomatic missions, I assume the two interacted infrequently, perhaps not at all. Is it possible that the two were somewhat familiar with one another? Do we know anything about their relationship…if it even existed?
Yes, it was only 3 years, from April 1533 to May 1536. George was away frequently:
- End May to end July 1533
- August 1533
- April to May 1534
- July 1534
- May/June 1535
So I don't expect the two had much of a relationship. George, of course, would have benefited from the income from Edmund's lands etc.
