    "A supporter of Richard II, he fell into the hands of Henry of Bolingbroke when Bristol Castle, to which he had fled for safety, was treacherously surrendered 29 July 1399, and was promptly beheaded along with the Earl of Wiltshire." [The Ancestry of Dorothea Poyntz, citation details below.]

    From Wikipedia:

    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, Duke 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.
