  • Notes 
    • "He spent his entire life serving the Tudor monarchy, and was likely raised in the household of Henry VII's mother, Margaret Beaufort. He was Sheriff of Bedfordshire and Buckinghamshire, Knight of the Shire for Bedfordshire, Knight of the Body to King Henry VIII, guardian to Princess (later Queen) Mary Tudor, and Chamberlain of the Household to Princess (also later Queen) Elizabeth Tudor. He helped Henry VIII put down the Northern Rebllion of 1536, and like his soon-to-be-kinsman George Butler prospered greatly from the dissolution of the monasteries." [Butler of Droitwich, citation details below.]
