Lost Boleyn Brothers?
I watched this video awhile ago and knew nothing about there being more Boleyn children. There is so much we do not know about Anne, Mary and George – including the order in which they were born. Many believe that George was indeed the youngest, but who is oldest, Anne or Mary? If Anne is older it would be strange that Mary got married before her older sister. So many mysteries surround this family, including two more brothers we never knew about!
Were you aware there was possibly a Thomas and Henry Boleyn, too? What do YOU think? I’d love to start a conversation in the comments about it.

It would make sense that there were more children. I remember reading somewhere that Annes father said of his wife Elizabeth that “every year she has given me a child”. Remember, many many children died in early childhood.
Thanks – glad you liked it, Judith! -Rebecca
I was aware that there were two more brothers but unlike their infamous sister they actually stayed quiet and not a lot is known about them.
Thanks for visiting the site, Daniel – always appreciate comments and feedback! -Rebecca
I agree with your video on Thomas Boleyn being a small child, as the cross was small and there should have been more mentioned of his burial site had he been older and more established. Good information!
