During my research into Anne Boleyn I have never come across any evidence of the two women actually meeting. Katherine Howard was Anne Boleyn's first cousin, being the daughter of Lord Edmund Howard, Anne's mother's brother, but there was quite an age difference between the two women - Anne was born in 1501 or 1507 and it is thought that Katherine was born around 1521 - and Katherine was living with the Dowager Duchess of Norfolk in the 1530s when Anne was Queen. Katherine's father was not one of the King's favourites, unlike his brother Thomas. Katherine did not arrive at court until Henry VIII married Anne of Cleves in January 1540 and Anne had been dead for nearly 4 years by this time.
