FROM A Who’s Who of Tudor Women by Kathy Lynn Emerson 1984

ANNE MORGAN (1529-January 19, 1606) Anne Morgan was the daughter of Sir Thomas Morgan of Arkestone, Herefordshire and Elizabeth Whitney. On May 21, 1545 she married Henry Carey (March 4,1526-July 23, 1596), later created baron Hunsdon. As Lady Hunsdon, Anne was a lady of the privy chamber. She had ten sons and three daughters, including George, 2nd baron Hunsdon (1547-September 9,1603), Henry (d.1581), John, 3rd baron Hunsdon (d.1617), William (d.1593), Catherine (d. February 24, 1603), Philadelphia (c.1552-February 3, 1627), Edmund (d.1637), Robert (1560-April 12,1639), and Margaret (1567-1605). In 1568 she left court for Berwick-upon-Tweed when Hunsdon was appointed governor there. According to Charlotte Merton's The Women who served Queen Mary and Queen Elizabeth, she had to pay domestic staff and even some staff officers out of her own pocket.When Lord Hunsdon died, he left the family in debt, thanks to the expense of serving the queen. Elizabeth Tudor paid Hunsdon’s funeral expenses (£800) and granted the widow an outright gift of £400, a pension of £200 per annum from the Exchequer, and the keepership of Somerset House for life. Lady Hunsdon used some of the money to erect a monument to her late husband in Westminster Abbey. Portrait: While another copy is elsewhere identified as Mary Hill, Mrs. MacWilliam, the portrait at Hatfield c. 1585-90 by a follower of George Gower is called Lady Hunsdon.
