About Catherine Poole

Catherine Brydges, c.1497-1556, was the daughter of Sir Giles Brydges or Brugge of Cubberley (1462-December 1, 1511) and Isabel Baynham (c.1475-1511+). She married c. 1515 Leonard Pole or Poole of Sapperton, Gloucestershire (d.1538), gentleman usher of the king’s chamber, by whom she had two sons, John and Sir Giles (d. February 24, 1589). Her second husband, married c. 1539, was Sir David Brooke/Brook/Broke (c.1499-1559/60). They had no children. Catherine was one of Mary Tudor’s nurses in 1516, possibly the one paid £20 for a half year's wages in March 1517. She was still with the princess in July 1525 when Mary’s household was moved to the Marches of Wales. She received a diamond ring as a gift from Henry VIII. In 1553, when Mary became queen, Catherine returned to her household, after a long absence, as Catherine Brooke. Catherine was buried at Islington where, at one time, she had a memorial brass.
