For more than a century, 1485 - 1603, the Tudor family reigned on the throne of England. It certainly was "The Tudor Age". Welsh connections to the first Henry Tudor places many of Welsh descent on some of the family tree branches. Such is my own family.
Understanding this time in an ancestor's life helps place the factors that played a dominate role in their existence. Shirts, hats, hose, and all kinds of items are discussed in the book by Jasper Ridley titled:
"A Brief History of The Tudor Age".
The book was first published by Constable and Co. Ltd, in 1998. This paperback is published as "First Carroll & Graf edition, 2002". A fun read for those who like to color their family history pages.
