Jane Parker (1505)

Type :  


Jane Boleyn, Viscountess Rochford (c. 1505 – 13 February 1542) was an English noblewoman who lived in the reign of Henry VIII. She was a sister-in-law of Henry's second wife Anne Boleyn and lady-in-waiting to his fifth wife Catherine Howard, with whom she was executed.


 early life
Born Jane Parker, she was the daughter of Henry Parker, 10th Baron Morley and Alice St John, the eldest daughter of Sir John St John (1426–1488) and wife Alice Bradshaigh, and granddaughter of Sir Oliver St John and wife Margaret Beauchamp of Bletso. Jane was a half second cousin of King Henry VIII. She was born in Norfolk, England around the year 1505 and her family was wealthy, well-connected, politically active and respected members of the English upper-classes. Her father was an intellectual, with a great interest in culture and education. She was sent to Court in her early teens, certainly before her fifteenth birthday, where she joined the household of the King Henry VIII's wife, Catherine of Aragon. She is recorded as having accompanied the royal party on the famous state visit to France in 1520, which was known as "The Field of the Cloth of Gold".

Though it has long been supposed that nothing is recorded of Jane's appearance , her biographer Julia Fox ("Jane Boleyn: The True Story of the Infamous Lady Rochford") suggests that a Holbein likeness represents a very remote chance of an extant likeness of Jane (pp. 317–319). She was probably considered attractive in her day, given that she was chosen to appear as one of the lead actresses/dancers in the prestigious "Château Vert" masquerade at Court in 1522. The seven performers were selected from the ladies of court in large part for their attractiveness. Two of the other performers included Jane's future sisters-in-law, Anne and Mary Boleyn.
