[The Arrest of Anne Boleyn 'during dinner her ladies, who knew what was comming, durst hardly speak to her, scarcely had the 'surnap' been removed when the Duke of Norfolk, and one or two Lords of the Council, entered her presence, accompanied by Sir William Kingston, the Constable of the Tower. At the sight of the latter the Queen started up in terror.'
