About Hester Harington

Hester died in 1568, and her lands went to Harington.

From Kate Merson (1) discussing Jones, Philippa (2009). "Chapter 9: The Mysterious Mistress and the Tailor's Foster Daughter". The Other Tudors: Henry VIII's Mistresses and Bastards. London: New Holland Publishers (UK) Ltd. pp. 212–235. Page 228 (see 3)

"Jones does provide one or two details on Ethelreda that I am prepared to accept. One is the existence of a portrait sold in 1942 to an unknown collector. It is described as three-quarter length with the subject in an “embroidered dress.” At the same time, the portrait of Ethelreda’s daughter Hester also vanished. It was described as a child holding a book."


  • "Hester Harington, living in 1568" from "the Harington Pedigree (1); not an original Herald's Visitation signed by the head of household
  • Had to have been born before 1559 (her father's 2nd marriage)
  • Had to have died before 1582 (her father's death -- property she would have inherited if living went to the Harington estate)
