Nobleman
Humphrey De Bohun was 14th century English nobleman. He held the titles of Earl of Hereford and Essex as well as Constable of England. He succeeded to these titles upon the death of his brother John in 1336. High Constable was the 7th highest officer of state in England. In 1338 he granted the Constableship to his brother William. He was a grandson of King Edward I through his mother Elizabeth. In his will he requested a chaplain be sent to Jerusalem to offer masses for his parents and another sent to the tomb of Thomas late Earl of Lancaster. In 1347 the seal of the Earl of Hereford and Essex was "In a circle of rich flamboyant tracery, between three cusped roundels each containing a leopard of England, a shield of arms: a bend cotised between six lions rampant."
