Sir Henry Ferrers
Learn about sponsoring this memorial...
Birth: Feb. 15, 1355
Uttlesford District
Essex, England
Death: Feb. 3, 1388
Hinckley and Bosworth Borough
Leicestershire, England

Henry was born in Tiltey Abbey, and died at Groby Old Hall, whose church served as the parish church of Groby. It was remodeled not long after Henry died, and its tower replaced with a structure of Groby granite, more or less identical in appearance, in the 19th century.
He was the 4th Baron Ferrers of Groby and a supporter of Richard II against the Lancastrians whose dynastic claim was soon to break out into the War of the Roses. He fought for the King in a lost cause to maintain his holdings in Brittany from 1377-1381, and was called to fight in Scotland in 1385.

Son of William de Ferrers and his first wife, Margaret de Ufford, daughter of Robert de Ufford and Margaret de Norwich.
