      Henry de Grey, Earl of Tancarville, age 1 1/2+ at father's death, d. 13 Jan 1449/50; m. as 1st husband, Antigone, only child (bastard) of Humphrey, Duke of Gloucester, b. 1391, d. 23 Feb 1447, son of King Henry IV of England and Mary Bohun, and grandson of John, Duke of Lancaster and Blanche of Lancaster. [Ancestral Roots]

      Note: Tanquerville is in France (captured territory), and has very little to do with their "permanent" family holdings.

      HENRY GRAY, COUNT OF TANCARVILLE, son and heir, aged 1 1/2 and more at his father's death. He was knighted on Whitsunday 1426. On 5 December 1441, having proved his age in co. Salop, he had livery of the lands of his inheritance, his homage and fealty being respited. He married Antigone, illegitimate daughter of Humphrey, DUKE OF GLOUCESTER.(a) He died 13 January 1449/50. [Complete Peerage VI:138-9, (transcribed by Dave Utzinger)]

      (a) On 3 January 1434/5 the marriage of Henry, son and heir of John Gray kt. and Joan his wife, was granted to Humphrey, Duke of Gloucester, for 800. (Patent Roll, 13 Hen. VI, m. 27).

      Note: The knighthood seems a little early (age 8 or so), but Humphrey, Duke of Gloucester got his knighthood very early as well.
