11th Baron Percy
3rd Lord of Alnwick
Henry Percy, 3rd Lord of Alnwick and 11th Baron Percy by Tenure, was avery small man, but it said this little knight was loyal, brave andkindly-hearted and of so generous a mind that he coveted not the landsof others, but was satisfied with those he had inherited. When only14 he was contracted to Lady Maud Plantagenet, daughter of Henry, Earlof Lancaster, 2nd son of Edmund, Duke of Lancaster, and his wifeBlanche, Queen of Navarre (daughter of Robert of Artois, son of LouisVIII, King of France), son of Henry III. This was the second marriageof a Percy with a member of the Royal Family in a period of littleover half a century. From boyhood upward he was his father's constantcompanion, on field and foray, acting as a page, esquire andlieutenant to his father, that scourge of the Scots. He was in Franceat the Battle of Crecy and returned to take part in the victory ofNevill's Cross, where he rushed ahead of his men, and they upon sightof so much courage in so small a soldier followed shouting upon hisheels, and the day was won. He died June 17, 1368. Lady Maud marriedHenry Percy at her father's Castle of Tutbury in Staffordshire 1334,when she was only 14 and died Sept. 1, 1362, and was buried in AlnwickAbbey. Their two sons became very famous and eminent.
