Some Confusion[edit]

There is some confusion here. Howard's daughter Dorothy, married to Edward Stanley, is given three parents (she's listed under both of his wives). In Stanley's article she is this Howard's grand-daughter, the daughter of his son Thomas Howard, which seems more likely to me (going by their ages). Also the relationship between Agnes Tilney and Catherine Howard (Queen consort) is incorrect. It's all confusing when they all used the same names over and over again, from generation to generation, and even within generations, eh? I'll try and check into and fix this soon as i get time.

I fixed the error. According to Burke, he clearly states Dorothy Howard as the daugther of Agnes Tilney. Virgosky 15:03, 5 March 2007 (UTC)


Thomas was created Earl of Surrey in 1483 but lost his title in 1485. The box at the bottom of the page does not reflect the fact that he was stripped of his title in 1485 and did not get the title back until 1489. Can someone rectify this? -- Lady Meg (talk) 22:19, 20 November 2013 (UTC)
