Sir Hugh de Hastings, was the son of Hugh de Hastings and Margery Foliot.
He was the next brother [after Sir John de Hastinges, de jure Lord Hastings, dsp 31 Aug 1393] and heir presumptive. He accompanied the Duke of Lancaster in his expedition to Normandy and Brittany in June 1356. He was with the King in his invasion of France in October 1359, being in the retinue of the said Duke. He went to Gascony in December 1366, in the retinue of the Duke of Lancaster, who was taking out reinforcements for the expedition of the Prince of Wales to Castile.
He was taken, prisoner by the Spaniards in-a skirmish at Vitoria, 20 March 1366/7, and was ransomed or exchanged in the following autumn. He served with the same Duke in his raid into Picardy and Caux in July 1369. He is said to have married Margaret de Everingham. He died. v.f. it is said in 1369 (g). Her will dated (it is said) November 25 1375.

Blomefield says that he died in 1369 at "Kalkwell Hill" (near Calais, where the Duke was encamped in Sep 1369), and was buried in the Friar's Church at Doncaster.
Hugh died before his brother John, as well as Hugh's son Hugh, died November 6, 1386. Therefore when Hugh's brother John died without issue in 1393, his title went to Hugh's grandson who was only 9 years old.
