  Charles BRANDON (1º D. Suffolk)
Charles Brandon had an inauspicious beginning and his rise to wealth and prominence was due largely to two things: his father's death at Bosworth Field and his own personal magnetism.
Brandon had written to Wolsey for support and he received a prompt reply but it hardly comforted him; the King could not believe his most trusted friend had betrayed him but, if it were true, the newlyweds had to pay a stiff penalty - literally.
Suffolk was still in Henry's favor; the King gave his old friend the unpleasant task of persuading Catalina de Aragon to accept the break with Rome and the new title Princess Dowager.

Suffolk was entirely in favor of Henry's divorce from Catherine of Aragon, and in spite of his obligations to Wolsey he did not scruple to attack him when his fall was imminent.

 Talk:Wilfred Stamp, 2nd Baron Stamp - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Either the reference to Henry Brandon holding the Dukedom for an hour is wrong, or the Duke of Suffolk page is wrong.
Given that the Duke of Suffolk page shows Henry Brandon as being 2nd Duke of Suffolk at the same time that Charles Branson is listed as being the 3rd Duke of Suffolk, I'm inclined to believe the latter; but then the question arises, who was Duke of Suffolk from 1535 to 1537?
Charles' younger son Charles, born 1537, inherited the Dukedom in 1551 on Henry's death, died of the same disease an hour later.
