But of course, my lord. I was just a young boy when I came here at court. I work to help my family, who is rather poor, living in a village out of London. I feel honoured serving His Majesty..

Rather poor..yes. I am not noble, my Lord Cromwell. My father is a blacksmith. I have siblings who work in the village and other courts. I'm trying to get enough money to marry my beloved..
