Family

Think about your Tudor character. Do they have family? Are they married? If so, do you have children? If you're not married, what about your parents?

You can add as much detail as you want about your family. You might decide to only give them names, or you might want to give them personalities and even invent stories about them. It's up to you!

Here are some Tudor names to help you. Of course, you can also use any of the names from the parish registers!
