Name: Henry BISET , of Kidderminster & Rockbourne 1 2
Birth: ABT 1158 in Kidderminster, Worcestershire, England
Death: AFT 1215 in Rockbourne, Fordingbridge, Hampshire, England
I originally had only one Henry Biset (of Kidderminster, Worcs), but Phil Moody, citing original charters, has two Henry Bisets, one as son of William "the Carpenter" Biset, and the other Henry as son of William's younger brother, Manasser Biset. According to Phil Moody, each Henry had children according to the way that I have it portrayed. I do not know how the descent of lands went, perhaps the Henry son of Manasser was given a life estate in Kidderminster, because it seemed to end up with the heirs of Henry son of William. Note that Phil Moody's finding conflict with Douglas Richardsons 1999 post below, as Aubrey FitzEustace married the other Henry.

. "A kind soul has faxed me the pertinent pages of the Cirencester Cartulary. . .
. . . . This Henry definitely married Isolde, but she might be a second wife, rather than mother of his heir. I know of no specific evidence or rationale to claim that this Henry, who was seated at Kidderminster, Worcester, married a Yorkshire girl. No Yorkshire lands are evidenced in this branch of the family or their descendants."
