      Edmund Moody (Moodye) was a footman to King Henry, VIII. In 1525 King Henry was 35 and becoming stout. He was a falconer and, while pursuing that sport, his vaulting pole broke as he leaped across a muddy brook, pitching the king head-first into the deep mud. He would have drowned had not his footman, Edmund Moody, jumped in and pulled out the king's head which was firmly stuck in the muck. As a reward, Edmund was made a gentleman and granted a pension of a grote a day and some land in Moulton. Later he was given "The Reward of Valor" together with an Arms and Crest from the College of Arms dated 6 October 1541, after which he retired to his home i Bury St. Edmunds. He died there in September of 1562.
