Joyce Culpeper was born around 1480 (aged 12 in 1492, and married).

She was the daughter of Sir Richard Culpeper, of Oxon Hoath, and Isabel Worsley.

Before 1492, she married Ralph Leigh Esq, younger brother of Sir John Leigh.

They had 2 sons (Sir John, and Ralph), and 3 daughters (Isabel, thrice married; Joyce, wife of John Stanney, Esq; and Margaret, wife of _____ Rice). They were lovely girls, but none of them seems to have turned the head of any passing monarch.

Ralph died in 1509, and Joyce then married Sir Edmund Howard, a younger brother of the 3rd Duke of Norfolk.

They had 3 sons (Henry Esq, Sir George, and Sir Charles) and 3 daughters (Margaret, wife of Sir Thomas Arundell; Katherine, 5th wife of King Henry VIII; and Mary, wife of Edmund Trafford Esq).

Joyce was living in 1527.
