Can’t imagine Margaret Beaufort cosying up to Thomas Stanley, can you?

This link takes you to an article about Medieval Palaces in London, and if you go down the page, you’ll come to a picture of the College of Arms, which moved there (from Coldharbour) in the last quarter of the 15th century. Yes, we all know about THAT!

However, it is interesting that the author writes of Lord and Lady Derby residing there. Of course, to me that means Margaret Beaufort and Thomas Stanley. Can’t imagine them cosying up together, can you? She was too busy refurbishing Coldharbour to her own glory status. His thoughts on his marriage will forever remain unknown, except that it was pretty handy when her boy Henry usurped the throne. Beyond that…it’s anyone’s guess.

Well, that original Derby House burned down in the Great Fire, and the present building is its successor, but in exactly the same place.
