Torrance Coombs / Thomas Culpepper
by henry's7thwife & Lady-Anne
Exercept from Chapuys' letter
This year on 13 Nov Sir Thomas Wriothesley, secretary to the King, came to Hampton Court to the queen, and called all the ladies and gentlewomen and her servants into the great chamber, and there openly before them declared certain offenses she had committed in misusing her body with certain persons before the king's time, because of which he there discharged all her household; and the morning after she was taken to Sion, with my Lady Bainton and two other gentlewomen and certain of her servants to wait on her there until the king's further pleasure. And various people were taken to the Tower of London, such as my Lady Rochford, Master Culpepper, one of the king's privy chamber, and others. On 1 December Thomas Culpepper, one of the gentlemen of the king's privy chamber, and Francis Dorand, gentleman, were arraigned at the Guildhall in London, for high treason against the king's majesty, in misdemeanor with the queen, as appeared by their indictment which they confessed to, and they were sentenced to be drawn, hanged, and quartered, the lord mayor sitting there as chief, the lord chancellor on his right hand, and the Duke of Norfolk on his left hand, the Duke of Suffolk, the lord privy seal, the earls of Sussex, of Hertford, and various others of the king's council sitting with all the judges also in commission that day. And on 10 December the said Culpepper and Dorand were drawn from the Tower of London to Tyburn, and there Culpepper, after exhorting the people to pray for him, stood on the ground by the gallows, knelt down and had his head struck off; and then Dorand was hanged, dismembered, disemboweled, beheaded and quartered. Culpepper's body was buried at St Sepulchre's church near Newgate, and their heads were set on London Bridge.

If nobody helps him, Torrance Coombs will end at a 5th place behind Thomas Cromwell and Henry Howard in the best eye candy-male game.
Can't be that you think James Frain & David o'Hara are more attractive than Coombs. Frain was not doing too well either, but since his fans on this site vote for him every day, he's speeding up to the 3rd place, a place that was for a long period in possession of Torrance.
Maybe a bit odd, a message sent by someone who votes for Henry Cavill, but I have only one point to give away each day. That point goes to Cavill, but Torrance Coombs is far more attractive to my taste than Frain & o'Hara together, that's the reason I sent you this message.
It's up to you, his fans, if he will gain back his old position.

Coombs has really ignited a desire to know more about Culpepper. It is very strange that there is so little to know about him, considering that the other 'Grooms of the Privy Chamber' have quite a few references to them.
Apparently, before he even died in 1541, he was cut out of the will of his father who mentioned everyone else, except this Thomas Culpepper. I wonder why. I would appreciate if anyone has any idea about this.
