About Reginald / Reynold de Grey, Baron Grey de Wilton

Reginald de Grey, 1st Baron Grey de Wilton

Reginald (or Reynold) de Grey, 1st Baron Grey de Wilton (died 1308) was an English nobleman after whom one of the four Inns of Court is named. He was son of Sir John de Grey and grandson of Henry de Grey. The property upon which Gray's Inn sits was once Portpoole Manor held by Reginald de Grey.


De Grey is said to be a descendant of the Norman knight Anchetil de Greye who accompanied William the Conqueror during the conquest of England.


Reginald acquired Wilton barony through his marriage to the heiress, Matilda Cantilupe before 1252, although at the time he was a minor under the tutelage of his father, John de Gray.[1] Later he was High Sheriff of Nottinghamshire, Derbyshire and the Royal Forests and Constable of Chester Castle, Constable of Nottingham Castle (1265) and Constable of Northampton Castle (1267). He was Justice of Chester in 1270 and High Sheriff of Cheshire (1270–1274). In 1281 he was again Justice of Chester.[2]


In 1282, he was one the three commanders appointed by Edward I of England in his campaign against Llywelyn ap Gruffudd, the rebellious Prince of Wales.[3] This resulted in his being granted the Dyffryn Clwyd with its castle of Ruthin Castle. This great lordship passed to his descendants, until Richard Grey, 6th Baron Grey de Ruthyn, 3rd Earl of Kent sold the lordship to the crown in 1508.[4]


He was summoned to Parliament from 1295 to 1307 [5] His younger grandson Roger de Grey was summoned to Parliament thus becoming Baron Grey de Ruthyn.[6]
