9. HENRY6 DE BOHUN (HUMPHREYIV5, HUMPHREYIII4, HUMPHREYIII "HUMPHREY THE GREAT"3, HUMPHREYII "WITH THE BEARD"2, HUMPHREYI1BOHUN) was born 1176 in Warwick, W, England, and died June 01, 1220 in while on a pilgrimage to the Holy Land in England. He married MAUD FITZGEOFFREY Abt. 1196 in Essex, England, daughter of GEOFFREY FITZPIERS BARON DE MANDEVILLE. She was born Bef. 1177 in Warwick, W, England, and died August 27, 1236 in England.
Notes for HENRY DE BOHUN:
Henry De Bohun was the first Earl of Hereford, Sheriff of Kent, hereditary Constable of England.
He became the first Earl of Hereford of this family, for he was so created by the Charter of King John, dated 28 April 1199. Even though he took the Barons' side against the King, on becoming Earl of Hereford he had promised that he would never make any claim against John or his heirs, on the basis of a Charter given to his great uncle Roger by Henry II. The office of Lord High Constable of England he inherited from his father, but he seems to have played no other active part in John's government. As he took a prominent part with the Barons against King John, his lands were confiscated, but he received them again at the granting of Magna Charta. Having been excommunicated along with the other Barons, he did not return to his allegiance on the decease of King John, but became one of the commanders in the Army of Louis the Dauphin, at the Battle of Lincoln, and was taken prisoner by William Marshall. After this defeat he joined Saire de Quincey and other Magna Charta Barons in a pilgrimage to the Holy Land in 1220, and died on the passage 1 June 1220. His body was brought home and buried in the chapter-house of Llanthony Abbey in Gloucestershire.
The name of Bohun suggests Hereford. Unfortunately, Hereford Castle no longer exists. It was built in 1048, and apparently consisted of a moat and bailey. The mound has been leveled to the ground, but the bailey is outlined by high banks. One report has it that all that remains is a platform and a piece of a ditch.
The Castle was once situated near the present Bishop's Palace. It was seriously battered in an attack in 1055, but it was restored, and was again in use in 1067. The site which it now occupies is a public garden, gay with shrubbery and flowers. An ornamental lake indicates where once was the moat, but the outlines of the walls are shown only by grass covered ridges.
