Alice Boleyn was the daughter of Sir William Boleyn (1447-October 10, 1505) and Margaret Butler (1465-1539/40), daughter of the earl of Ormond, and married Sir Robert Clere (c.1453-August 8, 1529), as his second wife, in 1506, by whom she had five sons, including Sir Thomas (d.1544), Sir John (c.1511-1557), and Richard. In 1520 she was at the Field of Cloth of Gold. Around 1528, Thomas Cromwell defended her in an action for debt. On her husband's death, most of the estate went to his first wife's son but Alice received nearly twenty manors, most on the east coast of Norfolk, for life. In 1533, Princess Elizabeth was given a household at Hatfield with her half sister Mary as a lady in waiting. Lady Clere, who was Anne Boleyn’s aunt, was made governess to the Lady Mary, as the king’s out-of-favor elder daughter was then known. She is reputed to have befriended Mary. Her sister, Anne, was in charge of the joint household.
