Henry VIII,the Reign
The Royal Progress 1535
10 Oct 1535
Henry lodged at the house of John Tuchet, eighth Baron Audley, whose forefathers were keepers of Brecknock and Llandovery castles and married into the Stafford family.
Nicholas Shaxton had been appointed as Bishop of Salisbury earlier in the year to replace the ousted non-resident Cardinal Lorenzo Campeggio, who had presided with Wolsey at the Blackfriars trial in 1529.
At Salisbury, ‘the king having considered the letter to Cromwell from Lady Brian [Margaret née Bourchier] and other of the Princess’s officers, has determined that she [Princess Elizabeth] shall be weaned with all diligence, and that Langley shall be put in readiness’. That dashed any hopes for a matrimonial union with the French; instead of being sent to live with a French family, Elizabeth was being placed in England. Anne was desperate.
