    EDMUND [DE HOLAND], EARL OF KENT [1360], LORD WAKE [1295], LORD WOODSTOCK [1320] AND LORD HOLAND [1354], brother and heir, born apparently 6 January 1382/3. On 24 May 1398 he, as the King's nephew, had a grant of 200 marks per annum for life, and on 14 April 1399 a grant of the reversion of the manor of Fordington, Dorset, for life. On 27 June 1401, soon. after his return from Ireland, he was granted the manors of Ayton and Huntington, Yorks (part of the lordship of Wake, in the King's hand, by the death of Joan Heselrik, to hold during his minority. On 29 September following he had a grant of 200 marks per annum during his minority from Cottingham, Yorks (as Edmund, Earl of Kent, the King's kinsman), and on 19 december 1402 £100 per annum from the same manor. He was present when Philippe, daughter of Henry IV, was contracted to mrry Eric, King of Denmark, 14 May 1402. On 1 July 1403 the King granted him all the manors &c., of the Earldom of Kent and of the lordship of Wake (with a few exceptions), Edmund to do homage when he should come of age. He fought at the battle of Shrewsbury, 23 July 1403. On 7 August 1403, he had custody of the manor of Cottingham, and on 10 February 1403/4, custody of the lands late of Philip Boteler. Nominated K.G. circa 1404. On 10 January 1404/5, as Edmund, Earl of Kent, a minor in the King's custody, he had licence to marry whomsoever he would of the King's allegiance. On 5 February 1404/5 he was granted custody of the abbey of Beaulieu, which had been much impoverished by the misrule of the Abbot. He appears to have attended meetings of the Privy Council from February 1404/5. At this time also (6 Hen. IV) he took part in jousts at Smithfield. In the summer of 1405 he with Thomas, the King's son, commanded an English fleet which sailed to Sluys and burnt four great ships. They also took three carricks, and, sailing along the coast of Norrnandy, ravaged- the country and burnt 36 towns. He was a justice for the counties of Hants (1406-07], Surrey and Sussex (1406-07], Kent (1406-07], and Dorset (1407). He was appointed Admiral of the Fleet to the West and, North 8 May 1407, and in this year was one of the Commissioners to treat with Brittany, and on 11 July 1408 was one of the guardians of the truce.

    He married, 24 January 1406/7, at St. Mary Overy, Southwark, Lucy, 10th and youngest daughter of Barnabo Visconti lord of Milan, by Beatrice, daughter of Mastin DELLA SCALA, of Verona. She had letters of denization 4 May 1408. He died s.p. legitimate (h), 15 September 1408, being slain in the attack on the Isle of Bréhat, Brittany, and was buried at Bourne Abbey, co. Lincoln. At his death the Earldom of Kent became extinct, and the baronies of Wake, Woodstock, and Holand fell, according to modern doctrine, into abeyance between his sisters or their descendants. His widow on 9 November 1408 had a grant of the custody of the lands which by Edmund's death descended to Edmund, Earl of March, son of Eleanor, one of Edmund's sisters, and on 18 November, as part of her dower, received one-third of her husband's lordships. She died 14 April 1424, and was buried in the Austin Friars' Church, London. [Complete Peerage VII:159-63, (transcribed by Dave Utzinger)]
