About Sir Henry ll de Hastings, of Ashill

Henry de Hastings (c. 1235 – c. 1269) was created Baron in 1264 by Simon de Montfort.

From Wikipedia

He led the Londoners at the Battle of Lewes, where he was taken prisoner, and fought at the Battle of Evesham. He resisted the King at Kenilworth, and, after the Dictum of Kenilworth he commanded the last remnants of the baronial party when they made their last stand in the isle of Ely, submitting to Henry in July 1267.

Although he was known by the title of Baron, his baronial title was not recognised by the crown; hence his son John Hastings, 1st Baron Hastings is regarded and enumerated as the first baron of the line.

Henry was the only son of Sir Henry de Hastings and Ada of Huntingdon, one of four daughters of David of Scotland, 8th Earl of Huntingdon and Maud of Chester.

SIR HENRY DE HASTINGES, of Ashill, Norfolk, son and heir of Sir Henry DE HASTINGES, of the same (who died shortly before 9 August 1250), by Ada, sister and coheir of John the Scot, 10th Earl of Huntingdon, 3rd daughter of David of Scotland, 9th Earl of Huntingdon. On 10 May 1256 the King took his homage, and he had livery of his, faiher's lands. He was one of the leaders of the baronial army at the battle of Lewes, 14 May 1264: he was knighted by Simon de Montfort before that battle. He was one of those prohibited, 16 February 1264/5, from taking part in the tournament at Dunstaple, and ordered to attend a Council on the morrow of Ash Wednesday [19 February] following. On 3 June 1265 he was appointed Constable of the castle at Winchester, during pleasure, in succession to Humphrey de Bohun. At the battle of Evesham, 4 August 1265, he was wounded and taken prisoner. On 18 January and 18 February 1265/6, when he was still in prison, the King granted to his wife, Joan, for the maintenance of herself and her children, her husband's lands in Blunham, Beds, Nailstone and Burbage, co. Leicester, Fillongley, co. Warwick, and elsewhere. With John de la Warre he defended Kenilworth Castle during the siege by the King, from 27 June till its surrender on the Feast of St. Lucy [13 December] 1266. By the Dictum of Kenilworth his lands were subjected to the penalty of 7 years' purchase. He was summoned for Military Service from 1 August 1260 to 25 May 1263, and to Parliament 24 December 1264, by writs directed Henrico de Hasting.

He married Joan, sister and coheir of Sir George DE CANTELOU, Lord of Abergavenny, and daughter of Sir William DE CANTELOU, of Calne, Wilts, and Aston Cantlow, co. Warwick, by Eve, 3rd daughter and coheir of Sir William DE BRAIOSE, Lord of Totnes, Brecknock and Abergavenny. He died shortly before 5 March 1268/9. His widow died before June 1271.
