About George Hastings, 1st Earl of Huntingdon

George Hastings, 1st Earl of Huntingdon (1488 – 24 March 1544) was an English nobleman.

George Hastings, born in 1488 at Ashby-de-la-Zouch, was the son of Edward Hastings, 2nd Baron Hastings, and Mary Hungerford, daughter and heiress of Sir Thomas Hungerford of Rowden, Wiltshire, by Anne Percy, daughter of Henry Percy, 2nd Earl of Northumberland, and Eleanor Neville, daughter of Ralph Neville, 1st Earl of Westmorland.[1]

Hastings was created a Knight of the Bath on November 1501, and succeeded to his father's title between 4 and 15 November 1506. In 1513 he served with King Henry VIII's army in France, and was present when both Therouanne and Tournai were taken by the English forces. He was created Earl of Huntingdon on 8 December 1529.[2] On the same day his eldest son, Francis, gained a seat at the so-called Reformation Parliament.[citation needed] In 1536 he held a command in the forces which put down the rebellion called the Pilgrimage of Grace.[3]


Huntingdon was a close friend of the King.[citation needed] His wife, Anne, was the King's mistress in 1510, and possibly until 1513.[4] She was later prosecuted for adultery with another of her husband's friends, William Compton.

George Hastings married, about December 1509, Anne Stafford, widow of Sir Walter Herbert (d. 16 December 1507). She was the daughter of Henry Stafford, 2nd Duke of Buckingham, and Katherine Woodville, the daughter of Richard Woodville, 1st Earl Rivers, by Jacquetta of Luxembourg, daughter of Pierre de Luxembourg, Count of St. Pol.[5]
