Blanche Parry
Blanche Parry was the Chief Gentlewoman of Queen Elizabeth I’s Privy Chamber and Keeper of Her Majesty’s Jewels. Born in the Golden Valley to a well connected family she lived until she was 82 years old, a great age at the time. She was constantly with Elizabeth from babyhood until she was 56 years old and so she was at the centre of the Elizabethan Court. Sir William Cecil, Lord Burghley was Blanche’s cousin and friend and they worked closely together through the years. She was discreet, meticulous, trustworthy, elegant, respected and evidently well-liked despite the factional politics. There is a wonderful memorial to her in Bacton Church
