    DUKEDOM OF EXETER (IV, 2) 1447 to 1461

    HENRY (HOLAND or HOLLAND), DUKE OF EXETER and EARL OF HUNTINGDON, only son and heir, by 1st wife, born in the Tower of London, 27 June 1430, and baptised in St. Stephen's Chapel, Westminster, the same day. He was knighted, 15 May 1439. He was granted two-thirds of an annuity of 500 marks, 9 September 1448, to hold, as from his father's death, during his minority. On 23 July 1450 he had special livery of his father's lands, without proof of age. He was Admiral of England, Ireland, and Aquitaine, and Constable of the Tower, by virtue of the grants of 14 February 1445/6 and 28 February 1446/7, mentioned above, and held both these offices till 1460. In May 1454 he took part in Lord Egremont's rising in the North, and the Duke of York, then Protector, found it necessary to proceed in person against them. He escaped, and was ordered to appear before the Privy Council on 25 June, but he came to London covertly, and went into sanctuary at Westminster. The Duke of York "fet hym owte," and on 24 July he was sent to Pontefract Castle. In June 1455 he was a prisoner in Wallingford Castle. On 9 June 1458 the King took his fealty, and he had livery of the lands which Anne, late Duchess of Exeter, his step-mother, had held in dower. He was a staunch Lancastrian, and a principal member of that party. He was one of the Lords who took the oath of allegiance to Henry VI in the Parliament Chamber at Coventry, 11 December 1459, and on 19 December following he was appointed Constable of Fotheringhay Castle, with a grant of 100 a year, for life, for his services against the rebels. On 26 March 1460 he was appointed to the command of the naval forces on the high seas, for three years, but he failed to intercept the Earl of Warwick on his way from Ireland to Calais, a few months later. He was at the battles of Blore Heath, Northampton, St. Albans, and Towton, after which defeat he took refuge in Scotland with Henry VI and Queen Margaret, and assisted the latter at the siege of Carlisle in May 1461. On the Friday after the Translation of St. Edward 18 October 1461, with Jasper, Earl of Pembroke, he "rered werre" against Edward IV at Tutehill beside Carnarvon. He was attainted in the Parliament which met 4 November 1461, as from the preceding 4 March, whereby all his honours were forfeited.

    He married, before 30 July 1447, Anne, 1st daughter of Richard (PLANTAGENET), DUKE OF YORK, by Cicely, 12th and youngest daughter of Ralph (DE NEVILLE), EARL OF WESTMORLAND. She was born at Fotheringhay Castle, 10 August 1439. After her husband's forfeiture, she was granted the lands which she had held jointly with him, as well as portions of other forfeited estates, the goods lately his were given for her use, 22 July 1462, and she was granted an annuity of 60, for life, 29 March 1465. The Duke escaped to Flanders, attending Queen Margaret thither in August 1463: when in exile, he appears to have been reduced to extreme poverty. On the temporary restoration of Henry V1 he returned to England, February 1470/1. At the battle of Barnet, 14 April 1471, he was severely wounded and left for dead, but was afterwards taken to sanctuary at Westminster. He was in custody from 26 May following until 20 May 1475, after which he appears to have been released, and allowed, or ordered, to join the King's expedition to France in the following July. He was drowned when returning from this expedition, between Calais and Dover, in September 1475. He died s.p.s., aged 45. His wife had obtained a divorce, 12 November 1472 (c).
