  • Notes 
    • "He was born in Gaunt's castle at Bolingbroke in Lincolnshire in the spring of 1367 (on 1 June Edward III paid £5 to the messenger who brought him news of his grandson's birth), very possibly on 15 April. That day was Maundy Thursday, a feast Henry observed with particular attention in later life." [Oxford Dictionary of National Biography, citation details below]
