  • Birth: ABT 1235 in Alnwick, Northumberland, England

  • Note: Hugh M. Thomas, ?Percy, Sir Henry de (d. 1272)?, Oxford Dictionary of National Biography, Oxford University Press, 2004 [ /21927, accessed 21 May 2007]: Percy, Sir Henry de (d. 1272), baron, was the eldest son of William de Percy (1191x3?1245) and William's second wife, Elena, daughter of Ingram de Balliol. Early in 1249, while still under age, he made a proffer of 900 to gain control of his lands and marriage. He was knighted before June 1257, the year in which he served in Henry III's army in Wales. In 1259 Percy was listed among the friends and allies of the earl of Gloucester in an agreement with the Lord Edward, indicating that he initially supported the baronial reform movement. However, he afterwards sided with the king, and in 1263 was among those attesting Louis IX's attempted settlement of the dispute between Henry III and the barons in which the French king favoured his fellow monarch. Percy accompanied the king in the siege of Northampton in April 1264 and then helped defend Rochester Castle against Simon de Montfort. He was captured at the battle of Lewes on 14 May 1264 and held prisoner until the battle of Evesham on 4 August 1265. Percy married, in September 1268, Eleanor, elder daughter of John de Warenne, earl of Surrey (d. 1304), and Alice de Lusignan, half-sister of Henry III. According to later genealogies they had three sons, William, John, and Henry Percy, but contemporary evidence can be found only for the last two. Henry died on 29 August 1272, and was buried at Sallay Abbey, Yorkshire, where his wife was later buried with him. He was eventually succeeded by his son Henry.
