About Sir Henry Wentworth, Knight of the Order of the Bath

Henry Wentworth

Sir Henry Wentworth of Nettlestead, Suffolk, KB (b. about 1448, died between 17 August 1499 and 27 February 1501), de jure Lord Despenser, was the grandfather of King Henry VIII's third Queen, Jane Seymour, and the great-grandfather of Jane's son, King Edward VI.

Sir Henry Wentworth was born about 1448, the only son and heir of the courtier Sir Philip Wentworth (b. about 1424) of Nettlestead and his wife, Mary Clifford, and the grandson of Roger Wentworth and Margery, Lady Roos. In taking as her second husband Roger Wentworth, a younger son of John Wentworth of Elmsall, Yorkshire, Sir Philip's mother, Margery, Lady Roos, who was the daughter and heiress of Philip, Lord Despenser, was said to have 'married herself dishonourably without licence from the King'.[1] Sir Philip Wentworth served in the army of King Henry VI in the Wars of the Roses. He was taken prisoner at the Battle of Hexham, and beheaded at Middleham, Yorkshire, on 18 May 1464.[2]


Sir Henry Wentworth was pardoned in 1462. Two years later his father's lands were restored to him by Parliament. In 1475 he went to France with the army of King Edward IV. He was invested with the Order of the Bath in 1489. He served as an Esquire of the Household and a Knight of the Body, and held the offices of Knight of the Shire for Yorkshire, and High Sheriff of Norfolk and Suffolk in 1482. He was High Sheriff of Yorkshire in 1489 and 1492.[3]


Sir Henry Wentworth's will, made on 17 August 1499, was proved 27 February 1501. He was buried in Newhouse Abbey, Lincolnshire.[4]

Sir Henry Wentworth married firstly, Anne Say (died before 22 October 1494), the daughter of Sir John Say and Elizabeth Cheyney, by whom he had two sons, Sir Richard and Edward, and four daughters:[5]

  • Elizabeth Wentworth (died after 22 September 1545), married firstly, Sir Roger Darcy of Danbury, Essex; married secondly, as his second wife, Sir Thomas Wyndham of Felbrigg, Norfolk (died 1522),[6] Vice-Admiral and councillor to Henry VIII, by whom she had one son; and married thirdly, as his third wife, John Bourchier, 1st Earl of Bath[7]
  • Margery Wentworth (c. 1478 - c. October 1550), married before 1500 Sir John Seymour. Their daughter, Jane, was Henry VIII's third Queen and the mother of King Edward VI.[8]
  • Dorothy Wentworth, who married Sir Richard Broughton
  • Jane Wentworth

Sir Henry Wentworth married secondly, by licence dated 22 October 1594, Elizabeth Neville (d. September 1517), the second daughter of Sir John Neville, Marquess of Montagu, and widow of Thomas, Lord Scrope of Masham and Upsall (d. 3 April 1493). They had no issue.[9]
