HENRY ([1190]-1229 before 17 Oct). He succeeded his father in [1203] as Earl of Warwick. He was still a minor in 1205 when Thomas Basset paid for his wardship[1558]. An order dated 11 Oct 1227 records a lawsuit against "Henricum comitem Warewici et Philippam uxorem eius et Thomam filium ipsius comitis…"[1559]. The Annals of Tewkesbury record the death in 1229 of “comes Warewik”[1560]. m firstly ---. According to the Complete Peerage[1561],

Earl Henry married firstly Margery de Oilly but, as shown above, it is more likely that she was Henry’s mother. The existence of the marriage appears to be based only on an interpretation of a 1263 inquisition according to which Henry's two children "issued from [exierunt]" the daughter of Henry de Oilly, although a broader translation of the expression as "descended from" is possible[1562].

m secondly (after 1205) as her first husband, PHILIPPA Basset, daughter and co-heiress of THOMAS Basset [II] of Headington, Oxfordshire & his wife --- (-before 29 Nov 1265, bur Bicester Priory). "Thom Basset" paid a fine for the marriage of "fil sua fil com de Warwic" in Oxfordshire and Warwickshire, dated 1205[1563]. "Henry earl of Warwick…and Philippa his wife, and Reginald de Vautorte…and Joan his wife, and Alice sister of Philippa and Joan" performed homage for the lands formerly of "Thomas Basset, whose heirs are Philippa, Joan and Alice", dated 19 May 1220[1564]. An order dated 11 Oct 1227 records a lawsuit against "Henricum comitem Warewici et Philippam uxorem eius et Thomam filium ipsius comitis…"[1565]. She married secondly (before 4 Nov 1229, divorced 1242) Richard Siward. Bracton records an inquiry, dated 1231, by "Thome Basset" which names "Ricardus Suward…et Philippam comitissam Warwici uxorem eius"[1566]. A writ dated 25 Aug "26 Hen III", and subsequent inquisitions, after the death of "Thomas Earl of Warwick" excluded the dower of "Philippa sometime the wife of Henry earl of Warwick and Maud sometime the wife of Henry de Oylly" and listed his lands without naming an heir[1567].

Earl Henry & his first wife had two children:

a) THOMAS (-26/27 Jun 1242, bur St Mary's Warwick). An order dated 11 Oct 1227 records a lawsuit against "Henricum comitem Warewici et Philippam uxorem eius et Thomam filium ipsius comitis…"[1568].
