From The Wakes of Northamptonshire, p. 19:

'He was among the knights of the county of Northampton that werereturned in Chancery in 1343, the same year as he was appointedChief Falconer to the King, and he was Sheriff of the county,1329-30 and 1335-6. By his marriage to Elizabeth Cransley heinherited the Manor of Cransley, which lies immediatelysouth-east of Kettering. Sir Hugh was a distinguished soldier,being among those who chose 200 archers to go to France in 1345.He fought with the Black Prince at Crecy and probably diedduring the siege of Calais in 1346.

'Thomas, as Sheriff, was the chief officer of the Crown in thecounty at a very interesting time. The justices in eyre,(itinerant judges who rode the counties), were given powers bythe king to try a whole range of law cases and to review localadministration. The justices made a circuit round the countryevery seven years. By the beginning of the fourteenth century,it had ceased to operate on a regular basis: in 1329, Edward IIIwas determined to revive it as a regular form of judicialadministration. Two commissions were arranged, one inNottinghamshire and the other in Northamptonshire. The last eyreof the county had been in 1285 and a detailed review of eventsspanning the forty five years had to be undertaken. The eyre ofNorthampton lasted from November 1329 to June 1330. It was heldin Northampton Castle, in the great hall and other buildingsthere, which were especially repaired for the occasion. A fewdays before proceedings began, the incumbent Sheriff was removedand Thomas Wake, who had never served in the office before, wasappointed.

'The work was very onerous. Whilst they were in session, thejustices held court six days a week, resting on Sunday, but withrecessions for holy days and festivals. After completing theirbusiness at Northampton in June, the justices immediately movedon to Bedfordshire. The range of cases which were heard wasenormous. We read of a murder at Haselbech on 27Ju1y 1328 and ofThomas le Corour who broke into the Earl of Lancaster's pound atHigham Ferrers on 14 May 1329 and stole a steer and two cows.The details of the eyre were carefully recorded by the lawreporters who were present. One man who was arraigned for felonyrefused all three juries which were offered to him. As a result,he was condemned to suffer the peine forte et dure in this form.He was to be stripped of all his clothing except the linen,placed in a clean-swept house and loaded with as many irons ascould be placed on him. He was to have a piece of bread on oneday and the next day a drink of whatever stagnant water wasfound nearby. This was to continue until he died.'

The following, which puts some doubt as to whether KatherineHuddlesfield is Katherine's daughter, includes the will ofKatherine, was copied from a posting by 'Lionhouse' tosoc.genealogy.medieval newsgroup, 8 Jan 2002:

'I Dame Kateryn Lady Huddesfeld beyng of hole mynde and p`fteremembrance the xxj daye of the moneth of November the secondeyere of the reigne of kyng henry the vjjj order and make my willand testament....Item I will that the churchewardens ofbraddeforde in Wilshire have my wryton masse booke to praye forthe soule of me and of Thomas Rogers somtyme my husband andSergeant at the Lawe./ Also I will that there be stone laideuppon hym my said husbande at bradeforde aforseid./ Item I willthat my daughter Elizabeth Poyntz have all suche stuff asremayneth in my place at birtporte in the countie of Dors as ina bill made and subscribed by me is ....and declared so that thesaid Elizabeth and her husband Antony poyntz clerly make or doto be made a genªall acquytaunce to the executors of me the saidKateryn of all accounts dues and demands./ And that the saidAnthony and Elizabeth and none of them their executours norassigns, vex, trouble , sue, myn executors or any of them/ Andif that they or any of them do contrary to this my will thatthey I will and fully gyve all the said stuff to my sonneGeorge./Also I gyve and bequeth to William Rogers of Bradfordeaforseid gentilman sonne to the said Thomas, a standyng cuppe ofsylver and gilt with a cover with dragon wyngs.

'
[Prob11/18 f 31 LH (4 Holder)]

Conclusive I would suggest that Elizabeth Huddesfield was hersand Katherine Huddesfield marr Edmund Carew was Jennet/ElizabethBossome and Sir Wm Huddesfield`s.

Katherine mentions 'kateryn one of the doughters of George mysonne' and she married Christopher Kirton of Pilton in Som, butI have no further record of the second daughter ' ElizabethRogers daughter to the same George'. Would it be your opinionthat Elizabeth Rogers one of the executors would have been theolder of the two daughters and that Kateryn who had xx markswould have been the younger ???

Many thanks Yrs Eliz


The following excerpt, posted as a follow up the same day byElizabeth 'lionhouse' would tend to support Katherine being adaughter of William Huddleston by Katherine Courtenay:

On the brass at Shillingford comemmorating Sir Wm Huddesfieldand Katherine, three children are depicted alongside thekneeling figure of Katherine, who is a suitable three pacesbehind the kneeling armoured figure of Sir Wm.

I had thought that this might have indicated that Katherine hadthree children which would be George Rogers son of Thomas (d1478) and Elizabeth and Katherine by Sir Wm. Would it be youropinion that these three children would have been engravedbeside her if only two had been her own children ?

Sir WILLIAM CARY 10, Knight, ) was born in 1437. He marriedElizabeth Paulett. He was known as the Knight of Cockington. Hewas an ardent supporter of the House of Lancaster, and took anactive part in the struggle between the adherents of Henry VIand Edward IV in the War of the Roses.

At the Battle of Tewksbury on May 4, 1471, the Lancastrians weredefeated, and William with others took refuge in the AbbeyChurch. According to the custom of those times the church was a'Sanctuary' and they could not be taken out of it. They wereinticed out on promise of pardon and two days later werebeheaded. His property was confiscated as usual in such cases,but Henry VII restored it to his son Robert. I cannot ascertainfor what reason, but probably because that King was a scion ofthe House of Lancaster in whose cause his father lost his lifeand property.

William had two sons, Robert, born in 1460, and Thomas, born in1465. From Thomas sprang three lines of nobility. From Robert,the family of Clovelly, Torre Abbey and Somerset.

Sir Robert Cary, son of Sir John, was born about 1375. Hemarried Elizabeth, daughter of Philip Courtenay, Knight. Hemarried (second) Jane, daughter of Sir William Hanchford,Knight. He defeated in single combat a Knight of Arragon, forwhich Henry V restored to him a good part of his father's land,and at the same time Robert took the coat-of-arms of hisopponent, which he and his successors have since borne: Argentof bend sable three roses argent. Before that the arms were:Gules, chevron entre three swans argent. The motto is: 'Virtuteexcerptae.'

The Story of the Cary Coat-of-Arms, as told by Old Chroniclers.

'In the beginning of the reign of Henry V (1413-1422) a certainKnight-errant of Arragon, having passed through diverscountries, and performed many feats of Arms, arrived in England,where he challenged any man of his rank and quality to make atrial of his skill in arms. This challenge was accepted by SirRobert Cary8, between whom a cruel encounter and a long anddoubtful combat was waged in Smithfield, London. But at lengththis noble Champion vanquished the presumptuous Arragonois, forwhich King Henry V restored unto him a good part of his father'slands, which for his loyalty to Richard II he had been deprivedof by Henry IV and authorized him to bear the Arms of a Knightof Arragon; for according to the laws of Heraldry, whoeverfairly in the field conquers his adversary may justify thewearing of his Arms.'

--Burke's Heraldry.

Another account is so quaint that it is placed before thereader.

'In the time of Henry V came out of Arragon a lusty gentlemaninto England, and challenged to do feites of armes with anyEnglish gentleman without exception. This Robert Cary hearingthereof, made suite forthwith to the Prince, that he mightanswer the challenge, which was granted, and Smithfield was theplace appointed for the same, who, at the date and timeprefixed, both parties mett and did performe sundrie feates ofarmes, but in the end this Robert gave the foils and overthrowto the Arragon Knight, disarmed and spoiled him, which hisdoinge so well pleased the Prince, that he receyved him intogreat favor, caused him to be restored to the most part of hisfather's landes, and willed him also for a perpetuall memorie ofhis victorie, that he should henceforth give the same armes asthe Arragon Knight, which both he and all his successors to thisday enjoyed, which is Argent, on bend sable three roses argentfor before they did bears, gules, chevron entre three swansargent.'

--Herald's Visitation 1620.
