TUDOR TITLES: WHO WAS WHO?

One of the most confusing aspects of English history books is the habit of referring to key individuals by their title only. For example, one reads of the Earl of Essex in 1540 and 1599 or the Duke of Suffolk in 1550 and 1552 or the Bishop of London in 1530 and in 1570, yet it was not the same Earl of Essex or the same Duke of Suffolk or the same Bishop of London. The listing below cites the titles to which reference is most frequently made and gives the name and identity of the holder of this title with dates. The dates are those during which the individual held the title. I have added further detail where it will aid identification and avoid confusion.
