Women of Tudor Lincolnshire

Sharon looks at the remarkable lives of four Tudor women with strong inks to Lincolnshire. Anne Askew embraced the Protestant faith and suffered torture and execution as a consequence. Katherine Willoughby, Duchess of Suffolk, was a Puritan who used her position and influence to help her fellow puritans. Katherine Parr and Rose Hickman were both at different times residents of Gainsborough Old Hall. Katherine went on to be Queen of England and Henry VIII’s last wife.
