I just wanted to share with you news of an article by historian Linda Porter in which she shares a poem that may just solve the puzzle of the fate of little Mary Seymour, the daughter of Catherine Parr and Thomas Seymour, who disappears from the records before her second birthday.
You can read my article over at The Anne Boleyn Files – The Mystery of Mary Seymour Solved? – and you can read Linda Porter’s full article on the subject at http://historytoday.com/linda-porter/point-departure-unfit-traveller. Please do read it, it’s fascinating.

As interesting as it is moving. In Tudor times, being born with the ‘silver spoon’ didn’t always guarantee a glittering life. Poor little lady!
