Context

John Lord Russell is appointed Lord Privy Seal by Henry VIII. He was an established member of the royal government, granted lands at the dissolution of the monasteries that included the kitchen garden of Westminster Abbey, now Covent Garden. More unusually, he managed to stay in royal favour through enough changes of regime to be sent by Mary I to attend the progress of Philip II of Spain through England to his wedding in 1554.
