  • Londen (Engeland) 1527 - 1570
    Painter-Stainer. Maybe the John Betts employed by the Office of Revelsin October 1527 at 8 d. In 1531-1533 he worked with others on the decoration of Whitehall Palace. A collaboration with Hans Holbein II is suggested, while Bettes was paid £ 3.0.0 for 'lymmyng' portraits of Henry VIII and Queen Katharine Parr , which were engraved by 'Gyles' (?) and for six pictures (accounts Queen Katharine Parr). Bettes resided in Westminster 1556, when he had to appear 6 september (reasons unknown) before the court of Middlesex, together with Richard Humdon, girdler, Joseph Booke, shoemaker, and Arnold Dickinson, all from St. Martin-in-the-Fields and Thomas Betts, shoemaker from St. Andrew Holborn. This Dickinson had married Elizabeth Betts at St. Martin-in-the-Fields, 26 June 1658.
