After the Execution

Richard Davey writes that Jane could not be buried in the Chapel Royal of St. Peter ad Vincula within the Tower as it had been returned to Catholic worship. Dr. Feckenham rushed to seek the required permission during which time Jane's body is said to have remained exposed. Davey reports that it was seen by the French ambassador four hours later, still upon the scaffold. During this time, according to Davey, Mrs Ellen and Mrs Tylney, Jane's waiting women, were unable to attend to the body.
