From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Sir Hugh le Despenser (died 1238) was a wealthy land owner in the East Midlands of England, as well as High Sheriff of Berkshire. He was probably the son of a Thomas and the brother of Thomas who died before Oct 1218, and the brother of Rohaise who married Stephen de Segrave. It is said that he married a daughter of Saier de Quincy (-1219) and Margaret de Beaumont (-1234). Hugh and his unconfirmed wife probably had at least three children; Pernell who married Geoffrey Savage, a unknown daughter who married Roger St. John; and Sir Hugh (-1265)

He held eleven manors in England: in Leicestershire, Yorkshire, Lincolnshire, and Rutland. His son was Hugh le Despencer, 1st Baron le Despencer and his descendants were the infamous Despensers that were favourites of Edward II.

Hugh le Despencer I is reported to have been instrumental in the repairs to Porchester castle in 1232. This castle was first used by Romans in the 3rd century. Sir Hugh had this ever-evolving castle updated to include a new forebuilding to the keep, portcullises to the gate houses and the repairs to the wall and hall were complete.
