    Notes:

    Many sources, including the Oxford Dictionary of National Biography, have her as a daughter of Philip Champernoun, but Brice Claggett (citation details below) and Neil P. Thompson argued convincingly that he has to have been, instead, her first husband, after whom she married John Astley.

    As "Kat" Champernoun she was governess to the young Lady Elizabeth and, in the words of Brice Clagett (citation details below), "is credited with providing her with the foundation of her excellent education. On Elizabeth's accession in 1558 Kat, now Mrs. Astley, became chief gentlewoman of the privy chamber, and was one of the Queen's closest confidantes until her death in 1565."

    Notes:

    "She […] had a position in the households of queens Anne of Cleves and Katherine Parr, while her sister-in-law Lady Berkeley was governess to Princess Elizabeth. A committed protestant, with her sister Katherine Raleigh she is reported to have protected the persecuted reformers in Devon. In the summer of 1546 Lady Denny (and by extension her husband) was one of the court protestants whom religious conservatives tried to incriminate through accusations wrung from Anne Askew, a distant relative of Joan's uncle Sir Gawain Carew; Anne would admit only that Lady Denny's servant had brought her money, and Sir Anthony survived as a leading figure among Seymour's associates at the close of the reign." [Oxford Dictionary of National Biography, citation details below]

    Joan married Anthony Denny about 4 Feb 1538. Anthony (son of Edmund Denny and Mary Coke) was born on 16 Jan 1501 in Cheshunt, Hertfordshire, England; died on 10 Sep 1549 in Cheshunt, Hertfordshire, England; was buried in St. Mary's, Cheshunt, Hertfordshire, England.
