  1. There was always a story in my family that we are descended from Cardinal Wolsey who had a ‘left handed marriage’ with a butchers daughter of Islington. Never got to the truth of that one. Any ideas

  2. Barbara J. Boettger

    Well, at least he saw to their education and that they were properly looked after. I haven’t done any research about the 2 children, but I guess that when Wolsey began to rise, he didn’t care to acknowledge the children and got rid of Joan pretty quick. Wonder if he had any contact with the kids while they were growing up.
