Amata or Amy Boleyn, sometimes called Jane, was the daughter of William Boleyn (1447-October 10, 1505) and Margaret Butler. (1465-1539/40), daughter of the Earl of Ormond. [1]

She married Sir Philip Calthorpe of Ewerton, Suffolk (1480-April 7,1549) on November 4, 1518.

They had one daughter, Elizabeth (1521-May 26,1578).

In mid-October 1521, when Mary Tudor was five years old, Lady Calthorpe replaced Lady Bryan as her governess and Sir Philip was put in charge of the household at joint wages of £40 per annum.

In 1525, when Mary set up her household at Ludlow as Princess of Wales, Calthorpe was her vice-chamberlain and his wife was one of her gentlewomen. She sent Mary a New Year’s gift in 1542/3.

Jane was a first cousin of Anne Boleyn, 2nd wife of Henry VIII and mother of Elizabeth I.

Please move "Ancestry Family Trees: This citation provides evidence for Amata Jane Boleyn" to a section that should be labelled = Research Notes = (RNs) and rephrase it to the effect: Ancestry Family Trees contributed X = what they actually "contributed;" or add coded Reference links to "Hints" that were resourceful: Expression error: Unrecognised punctuation character "#" where the first set of #s is the dbid and the second is the h set of #s.

Similarly for the Geni profile (GP) that should be named and placed in the = RNs = section. If that GP cites sources, then it can stay as a reference, but list those sources, "as cited by Geni Profile on Jane Boleyn."

Thanks. Otherwise, it looks like you're stretching for back-up: neither Ancestry trees nor Geni profiles constitute Sources or References. Thanks.
