Nicholas SanderNicholas Sander (about 1530 - 1581), Born Charlwood Place, Surrey.
Best known for his unsubstantiated claims about Anne Boleyn, which were reworked and published after his death (De origine et progressu schismatis Anglicani, 1585). He was the first to claim in print that Anne was deformed, giving her the features of a witch. There is no contemporary evidence to support such allegations, and they are believed to be entirely fictitious.
