BARONY OF HUSEE or HUSSEY (III) 1349
HENRY HUSEE, de jure, according to modern doctrine, LORD HUSEE (c), grandson and heir, was son and heir of Sir Mark HUSEE and Margeret de VERDUN. At the death of his grandfather he was returned as aged 6 and more and was found to be the heir, though the bulk of the Husee heritage passed by settlement to his uncle, Henry Husee. Even his mother's part of the Verdun heritage, which would appear to have been his due, seems to have been settled during his minority, in 1356/7, on his mother and her 3rd husband, Sir John de Crophull, and the heirs of their bodies. Before 10 July 1367 as Henry, son of Mark Husee, he had obtained execution of damages against Sir Henry Husee [his uncle], who had been convicted, by an assize summoned between them, of a disseisin against the said Henry, son of Mark, and had surrendered. Henry [the uncle] was pardoned for his non-appearance touching his ransom, and on 11 July 1367 was pardoned the forfeiture of his goods because of his outlawry in co. Kent. On 10 May 1372 as Henry, son and heir of Mark Husee, son and heir of Sir Henry Husee, he granted to William Wykeham, Bishop of Winchester, the reversion of the manor of Eling expectant on the death of Sir Hugh de Camoys, who held for life. As Henry, son of Sir Mark Husee, he nominated attorneys in Ireland 7 August 1374, and before 19 October 1377 granted to Sir John de Arundell, his heirs and assigns, the reversion of all the lands of his heritage in cos. Somerset, Huntingdon, Sussex, and Cambridge held for life by Elizabeth, who was wife of Sir Ralph Spigurnel. In 1393 as Henry, son of Mark Husee, he sued [his cousin] Sir Henry Husee, son of his uncle, Sir Henry Husee, for 1/3 of the manor of Harting (c2), and the suit appears to have continued till 1395, the defendant pleading the King's protection from 26 February 1394/5 as he was assisting in the keeping of Sandgate Castle.
Henry, son of Mark, married, 1stly, Margaret, who was buried in the chancel of St. Mary the Virgin in the church of Sittingbourne, Kent. He married 2ndly, Christian. He appears to have died in 1408. [CP 7:6-8]
[c] Neither he nor any of his descendants, nor his uncle Henry, nor any of the said uncle's descendants, were ever summoned to Parliament.
(c2) Sir Henry Husee (then uncle) d. in 1383, then holding 1/2 the manor of Sapperton, co. Gloucester, the manor of Hascombe, Surrey, the manor of Harting, Sussex, and 1/2 the manor of Pulborough. He had dealt with the manor of South Moreton, Berks, in 1368. By his 2nd wife, Ankaret (who m., 2ndly, before 19 May 1384, Andrew Hake, and d. before 19 Nov 1389), he had issue, a son and heir, another Sir Henry Husee. In the proceedings at law, concerning Harting Henry, son of Mark Husee, traced his descent from Henry, son of Matthew (d. 1253). The defendants vouched to warranty Henry, son of Sir Henry Husee, but the plaintiff said he ought not to be allowed so to vouch because the vouchee was identical with the defendant himself...
NOTE: Since CP didn't indicate that Henry was knighted, I am not sure that he was even considered a "Sir" during his time. The title of Lord/Baron is purely a legal matter, according to current law, which considers the title to be inherited, when it was not necessarily considered an inheritable title at the time.
NOTE: See notes under father (Mark) to see how few lands Henry obtained in inheritance.
