About Katherine Gilbert (Champernowne)

  • 'Catherine CHAMPERNOWNE Born: ABT 1519 Died: 1594

Notes: during the reign of Henry VIII, she converted to Protestantism and refused to give up her beliefs when Mary Tudor was queen. She sat with the martyr, Agnes Prest, the night before her execution. She does not, however, seem to have been prosecuted herself. Under Elizabeth Tudor, through the influence of Catherine’s relative, Kate Astley, Catherine’s son Walter was introduced to court and made a success of himself there. Catherine continued to live in the West Country, where she kept liveried servants and a waiting woman, but she was in debt when she died. She made her will on 18 Apr 1594. She was buried in Exeter with her second husband.
