      "Edward Hall gives the date as 14 November 1532, which was that accepted by later writers, but Cranmer, in a letter, refers to the ceremony as having been performed on or about the Feast of the Conversion of St. Paul, 25 January 1533. The wedding is said to have taken place before daybreak in 'the high chamber' over the Holbein Gate at York Place. The officiating priest was either Dr. Rowland Lee, the King's chaplain, or George Brown, Prior of the Austin Friars in London, a vocal supporter of the nullity suit."
