More information

John Perrot was born between 7 and 11 November 1528, probably at the Perrot family seat of Haroldston near Haverfordwest, Pembrokeshire. He was the only son of Thomas Perrot (1504/5–1531) and Mary Berkeley (c.1511–c.1586), the daughter of James Berkeley (died c.1515) of Thornbury, Gloucestershire. He had two sisters, Jane Perrot, who married William Philipps of Picton Castle, and Elizabeth Perrot, who married John Price of Gogerddan.

It has been claimed that Perrot was the illegitimate son of Henry VIII, whom he is said to have notoriously resembled in both temperament and physical appearance. However according to the historian Roger Turvey the allegation of Henry VIII's fatherhood originated with Sir Robert Naunton (1563–1635), who never knew Perrott, and who used second-hand accounts of his person and character, together with a series of historically inaccurate events, to reach his conclusion as to Perrot's paternity.
