1. I’m trying to identify the four members of the Privy Council who served Queen Katherine Parr while she was Regent in 1544. The Council minutes on British History Online record the following members: Cranmer, Wriothesley, Westminster and Petre. So who is “Westminster”? @ to one reliable source, Hertford was of this group of four, but why would he be referred to as Westminster?

    I use this site a lot. My prelim research is showing 7 of the 19 are in my tree as GGF.
    Browne, FitzWilliam, Gage, Howard, Seymour, Brandon and Baker. I hope my info proves to be accurate.

    Is the Privy Council still in existence today . *If it is is it still called by the same name or has its name changed ? ; or has it been abolished.
    Also is the star chamber court still extant ?

    • Mary-Anne

      The Privy Council still exists, but not the Star Chamber in modern day. The Privy Council is still called that, but it doesn’t have the same power or significance as it did, because Britain is no longer governed by an autocratic monarchy.
