      There was a link to the original source for the quote within the quote – look for the underlined words.

  1. Perhaps I’m wrong, but seems I read somewhere that Percy was among the judges assembled at Anne’s trial where the verdict was pre-ordained, and he with all the others voted to condemn her?

      Yes, he was, but I’m willing to bet he was ordered
      to do that as well which probably broke him, the poor soul. He was dead in a year.

    Realizing at this time and place Anne would not and could not do anything with out her fathers permission, so?????? It would be a great catch, for Anne, and more power and respect for her father.

    I am always confused when writers put down that Mary Talbot was Percy’s “second choice”, it would be more accurate to say that she was not his choice, and that it took a measure of force and coercion to create their union, it is likely that she was aware of that fact.

    Is there any information about Percy after Anne’s death? The current earls of Northumberland are Percy’s…are they his descendants?

      From what I can tell, Henry’s brother Thomas Percy died before becoming the next Earl (since Henry had no children). From there, Thomas’ son, Thomas Percy became the 7th Earl and then his brother, Henry became 8th Earl of Northumberland. Then Henry, the 8th Earl’s son (another Henry) became the 9th Earl. Then Henry the 9th Earl passed it to his son, Algernon Percy, 10th Earl of Northumberland. Then Algeron passed to his son, Josceline Percy, 11th Earl of Northumberland. So it seems it stayed in the family. 🙂
