Died on this day in 1550 aged 60 Francis Bryan (my toy,wikipedia). Grandson of Elizabeth, who was by a different husband grandmother of both Katherine Howard and Anne Boleyn, wives of Henry VIII. Francis was not very well behaved and was known as "the vicar of hell", however he managed to remain in the King's good books by always changing his opinions to agree with the King.

Born on this day in 1286 to Joan of Lusignan, Joan de Geneville , 2nd Baroness Geneville (my toy,wikipedia). Mother of Edmund, who married Elizabeth, grand-mother (by a different husband) of Mary, wife of Henry IV. Joan was one of the wealthiest heiresses around when she married Roger Mortimer. Joan was not an active participant in Mortimer's rebellion against the King, but she was imprisoned by the King to punish him for rebelling (how unfair!).
