Notes for Katherine Mylde:



Katherine is buried before the altar in the South Chapel of the Church of St. Mary the Virgin. Through her second marriage to William de Tendring she became the distant grandmother of three queens of England, two of the unfortunate wives of Henry the VIII, Ann Boleyn and Catherine Howard, and Queen Elizabeth I. Their memorial brasses in the Church of St. Mary the Virgin are among the finest in England. The Clopton Arms: ermine spot on the bend in base may be seen on the mantle of the depiction of Dame Katherine. The descendants of William Clopton and his wife, Ann Booth, are direct descendants of Guillaume Pecche and Alfwen his wife, by both the Clopton-Mylde marriage and the Mylde de Tendring marriage.
