He was at the siege of Dunbar and the Battle of Halidon Hill and was subsequently appointed constable of Berwick-upon-Tweed.[5] In 1346, Henry commanded the right wing of the English, at the Battle of Neville's Cross.[6]
  • Married Idonia, daughter of Robert de Clifford, 1st Baron de Clifford,[7] and had five children;
    • Henry, b.1320, succeeded his father as 3rd Baron Percy of Alnwick

  • In 1329, he founded a chantry, to celebrate divine service for his soul.[10]
