      1. You also have to take in account that we don’t know the birth dates; he could have died before reaching his 80th birthday. Like Edward VI (who reached his sixteenth year on earth but not his sixteenth BIRTHDAY), Rafe could have been born in one month and died in another.

  1. Really interesting post, thanks -can’t wait to go and see the house when next in London. Have to point out though that the letter ending “mercy , mercy, mercy” which Henry asked Sadler to read 3 times to him, was actually written by Cromwell himself from the Tower, not by Sadler, according to Cromwell’s biographies.
