Foxe's Book of Martyrs -- 424. MISTRESS SANDS.


            The like, also, may be testified and recorded of Mistress Sands, now wife to Sir Morrice Bartlet, then gentlewoman-waiter to the said Lady Elizabeth, being in the Tower; which Mistress Sands denied in like manner to come to mass, and therefore, beside the heavy displeasure of her father, was not only displaced from her room, and put out of the house, but also was in great jeopardy of further trial. But the Lord, who disposeth for every one as he seeth best, wrought her a way out of her enemies' hands by flying over the seas, where she continued amongst other banished exiles in the city of Geneva and of Basle, till the death of Queen Mary.
