Question from Jessica - More info on Boleyn and Howard families

I am very interested in the life of Anne Boleyn and as one of the sections of my work i am looking at her relationships with her family. However, I am struggling to get some of the events in Mary Boleyn's life into chronolgical order as different sources tend to present them in different orders.

I would very much like to know where to look for information on George and Mary Boleyn, as well the the Howard family generally.

But on a more immediate note would like to know the dates of Mary's relationship with the king and her marriage to Will Carey to get the relationship in better perpective.

The author Philippa Gregory has written a novel entitled "The Other Boleyn Girl."
This book should give you the flavor of the period and some info. on George, Mary and Anne. Granted its a novel but I am sure a lot of the info. is good.

DO NOT read The Other Boleyn Girl as a source of any kind. It's a good read, yes, but almost none of the information is factual.
