What is the current and/or accepted opinion on this lady? I have seen several genealogies saying she was born c. 1527 in Hrstmncauxcastle, Sussex, England, and married John Calvert c. 1545 in Yorkshire. [I have also seen genealogies saying they married in 1575, but that can't be right if she is the mother of their two children born in 1550 and 1553.] I have seen her parents given as John Leonard or Lennard [b. c. 1508 in Kent; d. 3/12/1590 in Kent] and Elizabeth Harmon [b. 1520 in Kent; d. 10/26/1585 in Kent] who married in 1538 in Kent. The problems with that theory are obvious. If Dorothy was born in 1527 she can hardly have been the daughter of a woman who was born in 1520 and married in 1538. Furthermore, all the other children of John Lennard and Elizabeth Harmon were born after 1538. The questions I have are these: 1. Was Dorothy Leonard the wife of John Calvert? 2. Who were her parents?
