    She carried the estates of the elder Chetwode line into the Wodhull family. Several generations later, Agnes Wodhull, daughter and heiress of the last Wodhull baron, married Richard Chetwode, grandfather of the Rev. Peter Bulkeley's second wife (and TSW ancestor) Grace Chetwood, thus bringing ownership of Warkworth back to the Chetwoods, or at any rate the junior branch of that family.

    Other Events:

    • Alternate birth: of Greene's Norton, Northamptonshire, England

    Notes:

    The Oxford Dictionary of National Biography says his father was "Henry Green of Isham." Wikipedia, referencing William Richard Cutter's 1915 New England Families, Genealogical and Memorial -- not a source we would rely on for medieval genealogy -- says he "almost certainly was the son of Sir Thomas de Grene, Lord of Boughton and Lucy la Zouche, daughter of Eudo la Zouche and Millicent de Cantilupe." The Ancestry of Dorothea Poyntz, sensibly, gives his parentage as unknown.

    From Wikipedia:

    Sir Henry Green [...] was an English lawyer, and Chief Justice of the King's Bench from 24 May 1361 to 29 October 1365. He was speaker of the House of Lords in two Parliaments (1363–64). [...] Early in his career he served both Queen consort Isabel and her grandson, Edward the Black Prince. He was made justice of the Court of Common Pleas in 1354, and knighted by King Edward III. In 1357 he was excommunicated for non-appearance at the trial of Thomas de Lisle, bishop of Ely, in Avignon.

    In 1365, while Chief Justice, he was arrested along with Sir William de Skipwith, the chief baron of the exchequer, and stripped of his office. The charges were probably corruption; both Green and Skipwith were fined for their offenses. There is no evidence of permanent disgrace and although he was never again employed by the courts, he kept his considerable estates.

    Henry married Catherine de Drayton. [Group Sheet] [Family Chart]


  6. 13.  Catherine de Drayton (daughter of John de Drayton and Christian de Lindesey).

    Notes:

    The Oxford Dictionary of National Biography, VCH Northamptonshire, and the History of Parliament all state that the mother of Henry Green[e] who died in 1399 was Catherine de Drayton, second wife of the justice Henry Green[e].

    We note, though, that The Ancestry of Dorothea Poyntz specifically denies this. We are puzzled by this, because their citation is to VCH Northamptonshire, Volume 4, page 77, which clearly says that the elder Henry "died in 1369 and was succeeded in his Boughton estates by Thomas, his son by his first wife; Drayton, which he had acquired from Sir John Drayton, brother of his second wife Catherine, being settled on Henry his son by her." VCH Northamptonshire's footnote here points to "Chan. Inq. p.m. 43 Edw. III, pt. 1, no. 48". We have looked at pages 341 to 345 this volume of IPMs, covering the several IPMs of the elder Henry, and find nothing that seems to indicate the parentage of the younger Henry, but we could certainly be wrong. We welcome correction on this point.

    More puzzling yet, the Ancestry of Dorothea Poyntz's entry for John de Drayton of Drayton, Northamptonshire who d. bet. 1365 and 1372 (entry #3232, page 112) notes that he "conveyed Drayton in 1361 to Sir Henry Green."
