    BARONY of HUSEE or HUSSEY

    SIR MARK HUSEE, son and heir apparent (a), was knighted in or before April 1341. He married, before 18 October 1339, Margery, widow of Sir William (LE BLOUNT), LORD BLOUNT, and 3rd daughter and coheir of Sir Theobald (DE VERDUN), LORD VERDUN, by his 1st wife, Maud, daughter of Sir Edmund DE MORTIMER, [1st Lord Mortimer] of Wigmore. They were summoned to be present at the partition of the Verdun lands 28 August 1343, and had livery of her purparty 1 March 1343/4. He died v.p., before 10 February 1345/6. His widow married, 3rdly, before 10 September 1355, Sir John DE CROPHULL, of Bonnington, Notts, who died 3 July 1383. She died in or before 1377. [Complete Peerage VII:5-6, XIV:400, (transcribed by Dave Utzinger)]

    (a) That Mark was the eldest son is sufficiently proven, in spite of family settlements made after his death to the exclusion of his son, Henry, which Henry was returned as heir to his grandfather by several inquisitions. Sir Henry Husee, Lord Husee, had 3 sons--the said Mark, Henry, and Richard. After Mark's death, he on 16 Oct 1347, had licence to settle the manor of Moreton (Berks) and a moiety of the manors of Rissington, and Sapperton (co. Gloucester) on himself for life, with remainder to Henry, his son, in tail; to Richard, his son, in tail, and then to his heirs begotten of Katherine his wife in perpetuity, remainder to Elizabeth, his daughter, in tail, and to John de Huntingfield (whose relationship, if any, is not apparent) in fee. The fines following this licence are mentioned in the inquisition upon Henry Husee, Lord Husee, where Henry, son of Mark, is returned as heir; and it is further recited that the manors of Standen (Berks and Wilts), Freefolk (Hants), Hascombe (Surrey), Harting (Sussex), and the Husee moiety of Pulborough were also settled to the exclusion of Henry, son of Mark. On the death of Walter de L'Isle in 1352 it was found that he held 1/2 the manor of Pulborough jointly with his wife Joan, remainder to Sir Henry Husee, for life and his son, Henry Husee, and the heirs of his body, again to the exclusion of Henry, son of Mark. Richard Husee d. in 1361, s.p., holding the manor of Standen and the manor of Tidworth (Wilts), "et quis est ejus heres propinquior vel cujus aetatis penitus ignorant", but the premises reverted to Henry, son of Sir Henry Husee (Lord Husee), not to Henry, son of Mark Husee. Sir Henry Husee (son of Henry, Lord Husee) had livery, 23 Sep 1349, of the moities of the Gloucestershire manors of Moreton in Berks and of land in Sussex, when the settlement of Harting manor, the moiety of Pulborough manor and the advowson of the abbey of Dureford are recited. The occupation, however, of the Husee heritage by the elder Henry, son of Henry, Lord Husee, was not without opposition by Henry Husee, the younger, son of Mark, as appears later.

    NOTE: CP does not give any explanation as to why all of the inheritance of Mark's father (Lord Henry) went to Mark's younger brother Henry, rather than to Mark's son (Henry). Maybe there was bad blood between Mark and his father (and the rest of Mark's family), or between the Husee family and Margery de Verdun's family (as she was mother and presumably had custody of Mark's young son Henry), or Henry influenced his father (Lord Henry) to his own favor after Mark died at an early age? I am not sure what is left for Henry, son of Mark to hold, apparently the property in Kent (probably Stourmouth (which was mentioned in the IPM Henry, d. Feb 1331/2), and maybe something around Sittingbourne where Mark's son Henry was buried).
