The 'Boleyn Cup' which belonged to Anne Boleyn and made in 1535 can be seen at the St. John the Baptist Parish Church, Cirencester, Gloucestershire and supports Anne Boleyn's crest of a crowned falcon on a tree stump with red and white flowers. It was made out of silver and gilt. It was apparently passed on to her daughter, Elizabeth, who then passed it on to her physician as a gift, who eventually gave it to the Church where it still lives today.

The Boleyn Cup - The only surviving piece of Anne Boleyn's enormous and very valuable collection of gold and silver plate. This simple silver gilt cup - topped with her falcon emblem - is now at a church in Gloucestershire.

After his execution, Henry Howard was buried in the church of All Hallows, Barking, near the Tower. In 1614, his son, also Henry Howard, moved his father's remains to St Michael's Church, Framlingham and there he was laid to rest beside his wife, Frances Howard (née de Vere) in a magnificent alabaster tomb. I took this photo during my visit to Framlingham last year.
