About Mary Pughe

NOTE: Mary and her husband Thomas Perrot both were wards of her uncle, Maurice, Lord Berkeley. She was not his daughter.

Mary Berkeley, c.1511-1586, was the daughter of James Berkeley of Thornbury, Gloucestershire (c.1466-c.1515) and Susan Fitzalan (d.c.1521). Around 1526, Mary wed Thomas Perrot of Haroldston, Pembrokeshire (1504/5-September 19,1531). The marriage was arranged by Mary's uncle (Maurice, Lord Berkeley). Both Mary and Thomas were his wards. The sum of 500 marks was settled on the couple. Mary had three children, Jane, Elizabeth, and John Perrot (November 1528-September 1592). The latter apparently bore a resemblance to Henry VIII, which led to speculation that he was the king’s illegitimate son, but there is no reason to believe this is true. Most of the story can be traced to Sir Robert Naunton, husband of John Perrot's granddaughter. After her husband's death, Mary married, c.1532, Sir Thomas Jones of Llanegwad (c.1492-1559). They had five children, including Sir Henry (d.1586), Catherine, and James. Philippa Jones’s The Other Tudors: Henry VIII’s Mistresses and Bastards gives Mary a birthdate of c.1480 and her son a birthdate of c.1520 on a family tree included in the book, although the text dates John Perrot’s birth at between 1527 and 1530. She also claims that Mary was one of Catherine of Aragon’s ladies and that Perrot was Henry VIII’s bastard but this source may not be trusted as the text is full of inconsistent statements and outright misinformation.
