    Notes:

    Lady of the Privy Chamber to Queen Jane Seymour. Author of Morning and Evening Praiers, with Divers Psalmes Himnes and Meditations (1574), which contains orders for private morning and evening prayers, with a series of "godly prayers" and hymns appended, and which appears in a unique copy held in the British Library, as part of a volume that appears to have belonged to Elizabeth I. The volume also contains an incomplete copy of The Queen's Prayers by Katherine Parr.

    From the Oxford Dictionary of National Biography:

    From her father's first marriage Elizabeth had a half-brother, Thomas, whose daughter Elizabeth, also married to a Robert Tyrwhit, needs to be distinguished from her father's half-sister.

    The elder Elizabeth Tyrwhit's early career took place at the court of Henry VIII, where she appears in household records from 1537 on as a recipient of gifts and as a gentlewoman of the privy chamber. Her relationship with Katherine Parr was especially close, possibly because Parr was cousin by marriage to Sir Robert Tyrwhit through her own first marriage to Edward, Lord Borough. Tyrwhit shared Parr's protestant sympathies and, with others of Parr's ladies-in-waiting suspected of links to the martyr Anne Askew, was arrested by Henry in 1546. When Katherine Parr died of puerperal fever in September 1548, Tyrwhit was at her bedside. For a brief period in 1549, after the scandal surrounding the relationship between Parr's last husband, Thomas Seymour, and Princess Elizabeth in 1547–8, Tyrwhit was appointed governess to the princess in lieu of the suspect Katherine Astley.

    Children:
    1. 1. Katherine Tyrwhit died in 1567.


Generation: 3

  1. 4.  Robert Tyrwhit was born about 1482 in of Kettleby, Lincolnshire, England (son of William Tyrwhit and Anne Constable); died on 4 Jul 1548 in Kettleby, Lincolnshire, England; was buried in Wrawby, Kettleby, Lincolnshire, England.

    Notes:

    Sheriff of Lincolnshire 1519-20, 1523-4, 1540-1.

    Entertained Henry VIII and his court in Kettleby on 8 and 9 Oct 1541. According to Notices and Remains of the Family of Tyrwhitt (citation details below), Tyrwhit "hanged the trees on the way from Kettleby to Brigg with carcases of sheep and beasts (oxen), to show that he could feed all comers."

    He is said by some to have been a vice-admiral of England under Henry VIII, but as Robert Philip Tyrwhitt (citation details below) points out, he is more likely to have been one of many titular "vice-admirals" for a piece of his nearby Lincolnshire coast, a distinction shared by many armigerous men whose seats adjoined important pieces of coast.

    Robert married Maud Tailboys. [Group Sheet] [Family Chart]


  2. 5.  Maud Tailboys (daughter of Robert Tailboys and Elizabeth Heron).

    Notes:

    Richardson's Royal Ancestry (citation details below), at Tyrwhit 18, gives the date of their marriage as "before 14 May 1509". But he also gives the date of their son Robert's birth (in two places, Lancaster 12.ii and Stafford 12) as "before 1504". Unless their son Robert was born several years before their marriage, which is vanishingly unlikely, surely the date of the marriage of Robert Tyrwhit and Maud Tailboys should be anchored as "before 1504", not "before 14 May 1509".
