From Van & Cathy Mason Family Heritage

The story says that Henry VIII is known to have had 6 wives and several mistresses during his marriage to Catherine of Aragon. One mistress is said to been Agnes Blewitt. King Henry the VIII is said to have fathered a son with her, who was born after her marriage to William Edwards. She and William named the son Richard Edwards.

The Edwards had other children with birth and baptism records stating William and Agnes as the parents, but there is no record for Richard.
