    I believe that the Bruges-born Levina Teerlinc was also a gentlewoman of the chamber under Elizabeth? She died in 1576. (Katherine Parr had recruited her in 1546, during the last years of Henry VIII’s reign.) There is a list of New Year’s presents Levina exchanged with Elizabeth (Folger & London’s National Archives, New Year’s Rolls). She was a miniaturist.

    I was looking for my 12th g.grandmother Ktherine Thyne, maid of honor to Queen Elizabeth. I was hoping to find more information on her & why as a lady to the Queen of England her & her husband would have went to America?

    Lady Margaret Hawkins second wife of John Hawkins is supposed to have been lady of the chamber to Elizabeth 1, but I have never been able to confirm this. Any thoughts?

    The picture of Kat Ashley is intriguing in that it is different from all the rest. She is plainly attired whereas the other ladies in attendance are all wearing the best most elegant of clothes. Futher there is a skull in the image of Kat. I suppose this signifies death, but whose death ?; Edward VI, her own , Anne Boleyn ? Thank you for this most interesting article
