Question from Kris - Edwards-Tudor connection

I'm also a direct descendant of Henry Tudor, or Henry the VII, by way of Richard Edwards. I'm interested in getting some corroboration on this. Anyone have any ideas?

[Ed. note - previous discussion of this line is here and here]

There is nothing in contemporary accounts linking Richard Edwardes to Henry VIII. Of course, it's possible that any person in the country of the right age was Henry's child - we cannot disprove these claims - but this rumour did not start until (as far as I'm aware) centuries later, and then from the Edwards family themselves (please correct me if I'm wrong). I'm sorry, but there is nothing to support this.
