A question concerning the Anglican/Episcopal Priesthood

For those historians of the Anglican Communion, at what point after King Henry VIII declared the church in England to be under his direction did that church start allowing its priests to marry?

Off the top of my head, it had to be sometime in Edward VI’s reign, when Henry’s Six Articles, which required clerical celibacy, were repealed and replaced by the 42 Articles, in 1553. That opened the door, at least.
