About Margaret Manners (Dymoke)

Married Sir Richard Vernon of Haddon, Derbyshire in about 1507 and was the mother of a son, George, and a daughter, Elizabeth. When she was left a wealthy widow, Cardinal Wolsey advocated a match with Sir William Tyrwhitt, but Margaret accepted Sir William Coffyn of Porthledge, Devon.

Margaret attended Catalina of Aragon at the Field of Cloth of Gold in 1520 and was at court with her second husband (Sir William Coffyn), who was master of horse to both Anne Boleyn and Jane Seymour. Margaret was one of the gentlewomen sent to wait (and spy) upon Anne Boleyn in the Tower.

Some accounts give the name as “Mistress Cosyns” but this is a mistake for Coffyn. In Jane Seymour’s household, Margaret was a lady of the bedchamber. In 1539, she married Sir Richard Manners of Garendon, Leicestershire. During this marriage she lived primarily at Haddon Hall. Biography: Oxford DNB entry under "Coffin, Sir William."
