    SIR HENRY FITZ HUGH, of Ravensworth, &c., son and heir. As an adherent of Thomas, Earl of Lancaster, he was pardoned for any part he had taken against Piers de Gavastone, 16 October 1313. On 20 May 1315 he was granted 400 marks, in recompense for the expenses he had incurred when on the King's service in Scotland. He was Constable of Barnard Castle from 15 December 1315 to 27 September 1319. On 20 August 1321, as a follower of John de Moubray, he was pardoned for all felonies committed in the pursuit of the Despensers. He was summoned for Military Service from January 1299/1300 to 27 March 1335, to Councils from May 1324 to 25 February 1341/2, and to Parliament from 15 May 1321 to 15 November 1351, by writs directed Henrico filio Hugonis or fiiz Hugh', whereby he is held to have become LORD FITZHUGH. In May 1322 the Earl of Richmond accused him of having, with many followers -- -when the Earl was absent at the Parliament held in July 1321 --- besleged and taken the Earl's castle of Bowes, and having held it for a long time, doing great damage, finally leaving it without guard against the Scots. On 1 February 1322/3 he was ordered to arrest Andrew de Harcla, Earl of Carlisle, who had lately joined the Scots, or was considered to have joined them. He was appointed a justice, in Northumberland, Cumberland, and Westmorland, to hear and determine the oppressions committed by the King's ministers and others, 10 December 1340.

    He married, 1stly, Eve, daughter of Sir John DE BULMERE, of Wilton in Cleveland and Bulmer co. York by Tiphaine, 2nd daughter and coheir of Sir Hugh DE MOREWIKE, of Morwick, Northumberland. He married, 2ndly, before 25 November 1337, Emma, daughter and heir of Sir Robert DE Cleseby, of Cleasby, Clowbeck, and East Tanfield, in Richmondshire, by Amabel, his wife: she had married, 1stly, before 24 April 1300, Sir Robert DE HASTANG, of Bagnall, co. Stafford, and Cowton in Richmondshire, sometime Keeper of Kingston-upon-Hull [LORD HASTANG], who died before 15 April 1336. She died s.p. before 13 October 1348. He died at Ravensworth in 1356.
