Question from Ann B - Men who went to Mary after Edward VI's death

How many men went to Mary's aid once Edward VI had died and Jane was crowned. Anyone of note among them? I'm in the mist of writing my historical research paper and can't seem to find a number. If you have a source that would be great! Thanks!

Have you looked at any of the biographies of Mary? They probably won't provide a number but will provide known names. I suggest Whitelock biography as a good starting point.

I posted a basic day by day account of Mary's campaign for the throne, including names of her supporters (and at what time they joined her cause), some months back on my blog. It started with this post:

I also recommend this article - Anna Whitelock and Diarmaid MacCulloch, ‘Princess Mary’s Household and the Succession Crisis, July 1553’, The Historical Journal, 50 (2007), pp. 265-87. There is also information on Mary's supporters in Jeri McIntosh's study on Mary's pre-accession households (which I think is available to read online)
