Although in the privy purse accounts of Henry VII her name was recorded as "Lady Kateryn Huntleye”, she is usually referred to as Lady Katherine Gordon, Gordon being her family name ( her father’s title was Earl of Huntley). There is plenty of information about her post-Perkin years to be found online under ‘Lady Katherine Gordon’. She made three further marriages and died in 1537.
The part she played in the Perkin Warbeck story is well covered by Ann Rowe in ‘Perkin – a story of deception’.
