  • From: ______________
  • Sir Henry Green (c. 1347 – 1399) was a courtier and councillor to Richard II.
  • Born in Greens Norton, Northamptonshire,[citation needed] he was the son of Sir Henry Green, a lawyer and Chief Justice of the Common Pleas, by his second marriage to Katherine Drayton, daughter of Sir John Drayton of Drayton.[1]
  • Green inherited Drayton House in Northamptonshire at his father's death in 1370. He became a JP in 1380 and MP for Huntingdonshire in 1390, for Northamptonshire in 1394 and 1397 and finally in the autumn of 1397 MP for Wiltshire. He also served in France with John of Gaunt.
  • He became a close confidante of King Richard II. Along with Sir John Bussy and Sir William Bagot he was appointed one of the eccentric Richard's 'continual councillors' who gained an unsavoury reputation. At one point they advised the king to confiscate the lands of the exiled Henry Bolingbroke, Earl of Hereford.
  • When Bolingbroke returned from exile in 1399 to reclaim his inheritance, the three councillors decided flight was the best option. Bussy and Green sought sanctuary in Bristol Castle but were delivered up to Bolingbroke on 23 July 1399, who had them beheaded the following day.
  • All three continual councillors (referred to as "caterpillars") feature in Shakespeare's historical play King Richard II, generally listed as "Bushy, Baghot and Green". Green also appears in the anonymous Elizabethan play Thomas of Woodstock.
  • He married Maud (or Matilda) Mauduit, daughter and heiress of Thomas Mauduit, by whom he had several children, including;
    • Ralph, his heir
    • Eleanor, m. Sir John Fitzwilliam (d. 5 July 1417).[2][3]

  • Henry’s father was the chief justice of 1361-5 who was allegedly dismissed for ‘heinous breaches of trust’. There is, however, no evidence of permanent disgrace, and when the judge died in 1369 the bulk of his estates passed without difficulty to his eldest son, Sir Thomas. Although a younger son, Henry was well provided for by his father who, five years before his death, had arranged that he should inherit the manors of Drayton and Lowick and property in Harringworth and Great Houghton (Northamptonshire), and also the manors of Chalton (Bedfordshire), and Woolstone, Wavendon and Emberton (Buckinghamshire). In addition, Sir Henry had purchased a reversionary interest in the manors of Comberton (Cambridgeshire) and White Roding (Essex), which he also settled on this younger son. (The reversion was destined to come into effect in 1388, on the death of Sir William Quenton’s† widow.) Henry made Northamptonshire his principal place of residence, and in 1385 he obtained a royal charter to have a weekly market and an annual Whitsuntide fair at Lowick and free warren in his lands there.3 More estates accrued to him through his marriage, which had also been arranged by his father. Maud Mauduit was heir to her grandfather, Sir John, who died in 1364; but she did not come into full possession of her inheritance until 1379 when Sir John’s widow died. The estates Green held jure uxoris included the manors of Grateley (Hampshire), Buckworth (Huntingdonshire), Chepstow and a moiety of Mathern (Monmouth), and Warminster and a moiety of Fiddington (Wiltshire). It was probably through marriage, too, that he acquired the moieties of two Gloucestershire manors which he was to sell to John Cassy, the chief baron of the Exchequer, in 1397.4
