  1. 1.  Elizabeth Oxenbridge (daughter of Goddard Oxenbridge and Anne Fiennes); died before 28 Apr 1578 in St. John's Lane, Clerkenwell, Middlesex, England.

    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.

    Elizabeth married Robert Tyrwhit between Apr 1538 and 4 Aug 1539. Robert (son of Robert Tyrwhit and Maud Tailboys) was born before 1504; died on 10 May 1572; was buried in Jun 1572 in Leighton Bromswold, Huntingdonshire, England. [Group Sheet] [Family Chart]
