Mary SheltonEdit

This is Mary Shelton's hand. Shelton (1510x15–1570/71) was the sixth daughter of Sir John Shelton and his wife Anne Boleyn, the Queen's aunt. Her parents were appointed stewards of the household for Princesses Mary and Elizabeth, and Mary in a maid of honour in Queen Anne's court. She was engaged to Thomas Clere, a gentleman retainer of the duke of Norfolk, and was a close friend of Henry Howard, earl of Surrey. Clere passed away in 1545, and Mary married Sir Anthony Heveningham in 1546, was widowed in 1557, and finally married to Philip Appleyard in 1558.
