  • 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."
