About John Gardiner

John Gardener, father of Stephen Gardiner, was a cloth maker of Bury St. Edmunds, Suffolk, England.

Stephen Gardiner

Stephen Gardiner (c.1483 /c. 1497 – 12 November 1555) was an English Roman Catholic bishop and politician during the English Reformation period who served as Lord Chancellor during the reign of Queen Mary I of England.

Update

His father is known to have been John Gardiner, a substantial cloth merchant of the town where he was born,[2] who took care to give him a good education. His mother was once thought to be Helen Tudor, an illegitimate daughter of Jasper Tudor, 1st Duke of Bedford, but recent research suggests that she was the mother of a different cleric, Thomas Gardiner.[3]
