About Ann Ashbye

Anne Ashby, b. c. 1497, the daughter of George Ashby of Harefield, Middlesex (d. March 14, 1515), clerk of the signet for the king and master of the swans in the Thames, and Rose Eden, Anne Ashby became the second wife of Francis Lovell (d.1552) in about 1525. Anne is probably the subject of the painting by Hans Holbein the Younger of a woman with a squirrel and a starling. A red squirrel eating a nut is the badge of the Lovell family. She and Lovell had one child, Thomas (April 9, 1526-March 23, 1567). For more details see David J. King’s article, “Who was Holbein’s Lady with a squirrel and starling?” (Apollo, May 2004)
