Sir George Wyatt was a student and wrote several books; among them was "The Life of Anne Boleyn" As his grandfather was a personal friend of Cardinal Woolsey and Cromwell, and a particular favorite of Henry VIII, I imagine it would be interesting reading. The estates that had been confiscated upon the execution of his father, Sir Thomas Wyatt the Conspirator were restored to Sir George, partly under Mary I, and the balance under Elizabeth I. Through his grandson, Edward Wyatt, the son of the Reverend Hawte Wyatt, this line of Wyatts was established in Virginia.
Sir George Wyatt, born 1550 was restored to his estate at Boxley by Queen Elizabeth in 1570 . He married Jane, daughter of Sir Thomas Finch of Eastwell, Kent, on Oct. 8, 1582. Between 1590 and his death he devoted most of his efforts to study and writing. His interests included theology, the Military Sciences and history, particularly the history ofthe English Reformation in which his father and grandfather played such important and hazardous parts. His main project appears to have been a eulogistic biography of Anne Boleyn. He died in Ireland and was buried at Boxley, Sept 1, 1624.
In 1571 George and family restored in blood and arms after having been deprived of them in consequence of Bill of Attainment and execution of his father, Sir Thomas in 1554. Admitted to Graysí Inn when 17. When age 18 married Jane Finch (24) daughter of Sir Thomas Finch, (deceased) an heiress, which restored family fortunes. He wrote the "Life of Anne Boleyn" which was published and a history of the Wyatt family which is in the British Museum in manuscript form. Saw active service as a soldier, lived to 73, wife outlived him by 20 years.
