Question from Sandra - "Mother of the Maids"

I'd like information about the women who served as "Mother of the Maids (of honor)" for Henry VIII, Edward and Mary, both their names but also what their jobs were, specifically (if possible). I've seen mentioned Lady Stoner/Stonor, Margaret (or Anne) Foliot, and Elizabeth Billingham.

A partial list can be found at:
It is important to remember that recordkeeping was not always thorough and complete in the 16th century, and not all records survive. Sometimes we just have to make do with the little information that we do have.
