A son of Geoffry Boleyn and Anne Hoo, Sir William Boleyn was born at Bickling Hall, Norfolk, England. He married Lady Margaret Butler, daughter of Thomas Butler, Earl of Ormonde. They had ten children, among them Anne Boleyn (1475-1556, m. Sir John Shelton) and Sir Thomas Boleyn (m. Lady Elizabeth Howard).
