Mary Boleyn. Sister to Anne Boleyn and a mistress to King Henry VIII before he became interesed in Anne. She was also supposedly a mistress to Francois I of France. Mary was first married to William Carey who died of the sweat. She later married a man far below her rank, a soldier William Stafford causing them both to be banned from court.
William Carey - first husband of Mary Boleyn. My 13th Great Grandfather. However, as the story goes, there is speculation as to whether or not Mary's children Catherine and Henry were actually fathered by King Henry VIII during their affair. Catherine is my 12th Great Grandmother.
