I think this is going to be one of the more interesting marriages to write about, though I know very little at the moment.
Anne was married to Henry Holland, duke of Exeter. They had a daughter, Anne, in 1455 and possibly a son, Thomas, (according to at least one source) born in 1461. It’s difficult enough to find a time during the turbulence of 1454/5 when Anne and Henry (who did not have a happy union) could have been in the same place long enough to conceive a child, 1460/1 is even more unlikely. Their marriage essentially ended in 1461.
Just when Anne and Thomas St Leger became lovers isn’t clear, though there were rumours surrounding her (and to a lesser extent her sister Margaret) for some time from about the mid 1460s. Anne was granted an extremely favourable divorce from Holland in 1472 (with the Exeter title and lands being granted to her) and married St Leger in 1474. Their only daughter, Anne St Leger, was born two years later. Anne died shortly after her daughter’s birth.
St Leger was executed in 1483 after Buckingham’s rebellion. Their daughter was stripped of her titles and Exeter properties. She married George Manners (lord Roos) and died in 1526.
I will be exploring Anne and her marriages in more detail in a later post.
