    Notes 
    • BIOGRAPHY
      The family of Bullen (Boleyne or Boleyn) is said to have been of ancient date in the county of Norfolk. Geoffrey Boleyn came from Salle, County Norfolk, but settled in London. In 1429 Geoffrey Boleyn was admitted to The Mercer's Company by redemption (i.e. by invitation, as opposed to by apprenticeship or by patrimony). He attained great opulence but also filled the lord mayor's chair and was made a knight. He married the eldest daughter and co-heir of Lord Hoo and Hastings and they had several children.

      In 1475 the Register of the Fraternity of the Holy Trinity at Luton, which had been founded that year, mentions Thomas Hoo, Lord Hastings, and Elizabeth his wife; Sir Geoffrey Boleyn, late Lord Mayor of London, and Dame Anne, his wife, daughter of the said Lord Hastings; William Boleyn, esquire; Thomas Hoo, esquire; Thomas Hoo of Walden; and Laurence Hoo of East Hyde and Alice, his wife.
