    EARLDOM OF ESSEX (XII) 1361

    EARLDOM OF NORTHAMPTON (VII, 2) 1360

    EARLDOM OF HEREFORD (XI, 7) 1361

    HUMPHREY (DE BOHUN), EARL OF HEREFORD AND ESSEX, EARL OF NORTHAMPTON, and Constable of England, nephew and heir, being son and heir of William (DE BOHUN), EARL OF NORTHAMPTON, and Elizabeth his wife, was born 25 March 1342, succeeded his father as Earl of Northampton 16 September 1360, and his uncle, as Earl of Hereford and Essex and Constable of England, 15 October 1361. On 26 January 1362/3 Richard, Earl of Arundel, and others were appointed his guardians in England, Wales and Ireland while he was going on a pilgrimage beyond the seas in his nonage. He was present at the confirmation of the treaty between Edward III and Pedro, King of Castile and Leon, 1 February 1362/3. The King took his homage 5 May 1363, and he had restoration of his father's lands. He was nominated K.G. about 1365. On 18 July 1366 he was going beyond seas on the King's service, and on 28 November 1367 was again beyond seas, serving on various embassies. He was with John, Duke of Lancaster in France.

    He married, after 9 September 1359, Joan, daughter of Richard (FITZALAN), EARL OF ARUNDEL, by his 2nd wife, Eleanor, widow of John (DE BEAUMONT), LORD BEAUMONT, and daughter of Henry, EARL OF LANCASTFR. He died s.p.m., 16 January 1372/3, and his lands were taken into the King's hand 17 and 18 January 1372/3. He was buried in Walden Abbey, at the feet of his father, on the north side of the presbytery. His will as Earl of Hereford and Essex and of Northampton and Constable of England is dated at Pleshey 12 December 1372, and was proved 15 May 1373 at Lambeth. His widow had assignment of dower 26 July 1373. She, who was a great benefactress to Walden Abbey, died 7 April 1419, and was also bur. there. [Complete Peerage VI:473-4, (transcribed by Dave Utzinger)]

    His coheirs were his 2 daughters, Eleanor de Bohun, who was aged 7 at her father's death, and Mary de Bohun, returned as aged 3 or 4.

    (1) Eleanor de Bohun m. Thomas surnamed of Woodstock, youngest son of Edward III, who was created Earl of Buckingham in 1377 and Duke of Gloucester in 1385. He was, in right of his wife, recognised as Constable of England, and in writs of summons was so addressed. He also seems to have been recognised as Earl of Essex, having a grant of the fee of that earldom 13 Apr. 1374.
    (2) Mary de Bohun married Henry, Earl of Derby, created Duke of Hereford, who ascended the throne in 1399 as Henry IV.

    ----------------------------------------

    Humphrey de Bohun, nephew of Humphrey de Bohun, 7th Earl of Hereford and Earl of Essex, then being a minor at the decease of his uncle, and under the guardianship of Richard, Earl of Arundel. His lordship did not, however, long enjoy this great accumulation of wealth and honour, for he d. in 1372 in the thirty-second year of his age, leaving by his wife, Joane, dau. of his late guardian, the Earl of Arundel, two daus., his co-heirs, viz, Alianore, m. to Thomas of Woodstock, Duke of Gloucester, 6th son of King Edward III; and Mary, m. to Henry, Earl of Derby (son of John of Gaunt, Duke of Lancaster), who afterwards ascended the throne as Henry IV.

    Upon the decease of this nobleman, the Earldom of Hereford expired, but his son-in-law, the Earl of Derby, was subsequently created (in 1397) Duke of Hereford, prior, of course, to his becoming King of England, while the lordships of Essex and Northampton and the constableship fell to his other son-in-law, the Duke of Gloucester, and the Earldoms of Essex and Northampton became extinct.
