Anne Boleyn -married King Henry the Eighth in 1533. The marriage only lasted three years and she was beheaded in 1536 by a single swift stroke administered by an expert swordsman brought over from Calais rather than by the usual blunter method.
The Great Bible - Thomas Cromwell’s injunctions of September 1538 required every parish to purchase a copy of an English Bible and place it in ‘some convenient place’ for all to see and read.

last letter - Sir Thomas More resigned as Lord Chancellor on 16 May 1532 and Henry had allowed him to live as a private citizen. However, in 1533 More incurred the enmity of Anne and Henry Viii by refusing to attend Anne’s coronation and by publishing The Apology of Sir Thomas More, a defence of the old Catholic order in which he advised every good Christian to stand firm to the old faith.
