Question from Ann B. - Origin of the nickname "Bloody Mary"

When and by whom was the nickname "Bloody Mary" coined? I am writing a 20 page research paper on Mary I and i was wanting to find a origin, if possiable. Thanks!

Check Anna Whitelock's book "Mary Tudor: Princess, Bastard, Queen". She has at least some discussion on the term as originating from Foxe's martyrs.
