  • Notes 
    • J.J. Greene writes: purchased Greene's Norton. Lord Chief Justice of England 1361-65. The first mention of this eminent lawyer was upon an occasion where, in the reign of Edward III, he was commissioned with the Earl of Oxford to examine certain abuses in hte Diocese of Canterbury (Halstead's Genealogies). He was appointed Serjeant at Law in 1345, and received the honour of Knighthood on his appointment as Justice at the Court of Common Pleas, 6th February, 1353 (Foss' Lives of the Judges of England). He was much employed and in special trust and authority under those Ministers of the King left to govern the land during his absence in all the long wards he made in France; and in 1360 was sent with Sir William Shardshall, a man of great credit in those days, to inquire into that great cause of Thoms Lild, the turbulent Bishop of Ely, agaainst whom the Lady Wake, the King's nearest cousin, did complain for the murder of her servant, William Holmes, and other misdemeanours (Halstead). By his wisdom, integrity, and great abilities, Sir Henry Greene was, on the 24th May, 1361, raised to the Office of Lord Chief Justice of England, which he held till 29th October, 1365 (Foss); and was Speaker of the House of Lords in the Parliaments of 1362 and 1363. Such was his good fortune and the effects of the worthy and industrious endeavours of his life as made the estate he left to his posterity one of the most considerable in that age, and dying full of years, riches and estimation, in the 43rd year of the reign of King Edward III (1370) was buried at Boughton. (Halstead).(Halstead).
