  Jane Parker, Lady Rochford
Jane Parker, better known as Lady Rochford (~1510-1541) was the sister-in-law of Queen Anne Boleyn and lady in waiting to Queen Catherine Howard, along with whom she was executed.
Jane's marriage to George Boleyn was not a happy one, which may have prompted her to testify against her husband at the trial of her sister-in-law.
Following his execution, Jane Parker was later given a placement in the household of another of Henry's queens, Anne of Cleves, and it was she who questioned the queen about the consumation, and therefore the validity, of her marriage to the king.

 George BOLEYN (2° V. Rochford)
He was known as Viscount Rochford from 1529 onwards (after his father became Earl of Wiltshire), and this ceased to be merely a courtesy title in 1530.
Throughout, he was a firm supporter of Anne, helping to manage the clergy in convocation in 1531 when the latter were, more or less, coerced into declaring Henry "sole protector and supreme head of the English church and clergy" in the Pardon of the Clergy.
His wife, Jane, testified against him; this may have been because her father, Lord Morley, had been a devoted supporter of Catalina de Aragon, or an attempt to remain on the winning side, or possibly the result of an unhappy marriage.
