John de launcelyn was the father of king henry VIII's nurse Anne Luke.John died in 1435.anne Luke married walter luke.The surname luke was her married name and not her maiden.Walter luke was a member of the king's bench.He lived in woodend/launcelyns manor until he died in 1544.Anne and walter luke had a child named Nicholas.Nicholas inherited the manor and land on his father walter's death.Then Nicholas owned the house until he died and his son John luke inherited the property.
This is all I could find on Anne Luke nurse to king Henry VIII.
if i find any more information I will let you know.

Are you sure the date 1435 for the death of Anne Luke's father is right? Henry VIII was born in 1491 so if she was Henry VIII's wet nurse and her husband died in 1544 her father could not have died in 1435.
