Thomas Cromwell’s Sussex Connections – Helen Poole
21st February 2019 @ 8:00 pm - 9:30 pm
Thomas Cromwell remains one of the most enigmatic figures of Tudor history. His first contact with Sussex came with the contentious dissolution of Bayham Abbey. Later in the more widespread dissolution, he was granted Michelham Priory and then Lewes Priory where he hoped to set up home in the former Prior’s Lodgings but his disastrous promotion of Anne of Cleves as Henry VIII’s fourth wife led to his death.
