I do not own the copyright on any of these images. Some are public domain, others are in various museums around the world. If you claim to own the copyright on any of these, all you need to do is ask me to take it down and I will be glad to do so. No profit is being made for these images in any way. I have collected them and placed them here only as a resource for myself and others who are interested in Tudor history.

If you instead would like a link to your blog, book or a blog post about your book, just drop me a line. I am always happy to rec stuff.

Do you know who or where copies of John and Jane Lumley might be. We would like to show images in an exhibition we are planning?
Many thanks

I think the Tau cross that they are wearing could be linked to the(knights) order of St Anthony, Mary 1st collar looks like it may represent the knotted girdle/waist cord of st Anthony .
