However, the Grand Jury still claimed to have found enough evidence to send all of the accused onto their own trials, which would all take place in a few days. It is interesting to think about how in the world these juries could have found significant evidence to incriminate these people - when misconduct between the Queen and those men had not even been a subject of gossip at court! One would think that the Queen (especially one who was notoriously disliked by many at court) would have been a subject of conversation anyway. Wouldn't people have been paying rather close attention to the slightest bit of scandal regarding her? As it was, it was only Cromwell and his men who seemed to have any "knowledge" of Anne Boleyn's affairs - which took the rest of the court by complete surprise.
Based on that fact, and when we remember the confusing content of the accusation against William Brereton regarding the time and place of his alleged affair with Queen Anne, I believe that evertying was a complete set-up to bring Anne Boleyn and her family down. To this day there remains no evidence of Anne's affairs, or that she was not truly in love with the King - as these indictments accused her of. Never has it been proven that she plotted the King's death, or that she promised marriage to other men whenever her husband died. This seems to be the evil, dirty work of Cromwell - and the Grand Juries of Middlesex and Kent were doing as Cromwell wished. I sincerely doubt that they actually found the evidence necessary to push along formal trials (and subsequent executions), but everything was part of Cromwell's fast-paced, horrible plan to destroy an innocent woman.
Smeaton, Norris, Weston, and Brereton would face their trials tomorrow.
