Note on Wife: Maria DE LA SALINAS

Maria de Salinas's parentage is the subject of some debate. One possibility is that she was the daughter of Don Martin de Salinas and Doña Josepha Gonzales de Sales. The other is that her parents were Juan de Salinas (d.c.July, 1495) and Inez de Albornos. The source of the latter choice also gives Maria a sister, a second Inez de Albernos, who married Francis Guevera of Stanyott, Lincolnshire. Whatever her parentage, Maria came to England in 1503 to replace her cousin, Maria de Rojas, as one of Catherine of Aragon's ladies and by 1514 was considered to be Queen Catherine's closest friend. She was naturalized in 1516, shortly before her June 5th marriage to William, 10th Baron Willoughby d'Eresby (d.1526), master of the royal hart hounds. They were given the loan of Greenwich Palace for their honeymoon and the manor of Grimsthorpe, Lincolnshire as a wedding present. An indication of the favor in which Maria was held can also be seen in the name of one of King Henry VII I's new ships—the Mary Willoughby. Maria had only one child, Catherine (March 22,1520-September 19,1580), who became the ward of Charles Brandon, duke of Suffolk upon Willoughby's death. In 1534, after the death of his previous wife, the king's sister, Mary Tudor, Suffolk married Catherine Willoughby. Maria was forced to leave Queen Catherine's service in 1532. She had two dower houses, Parham Old Hall in Suffolk and the Barbican in London. In 1535, however, when she heard that her old mistress was dying, she made her way to Queen Catherine's prison at Kimbolton Castle and demanded entrance. As Garrett Mattingly, Catherine's biographer, puts it: "It was a foul, black night, the roads were filthy, she had fallen from her horse, she did not care what his orders were, she was not going another mile." Faced with such determination, Sir Edmund Bedingfield, Catherine's jailer, let Maria in. She was with Catherine when she died on January 7, 1536. Maria herself died at Grimsthorpe some three years later, but she is said to have been buried near the queen.
