Canon W.S. Pakenham-Walsh was born in 1868 and at the age of 29 until 52, he acted as Chaplain to the British community in Foochow, China. It was in the library of the Foochow community that Pakenham-Walsh first found books related to Anne Boleyn’s enigmatic life and from which he began to compile a summary of her life. On his return to England became a keen scholar and educationalist, as well as being a respected clergyman. He died in 1960 at the age of 92.
