?As in Aston Clinton, so also in Shenley, the manorial rights were claimed by Reynold Lord Grey de Wilton on the death, in 1442, of his father Richard, to whom Reynold?s mother, the Vache heiress, had brought the manor in marriage. After a dispute with his step mother Margaret, on whom this moiety as well as the other had been settled, Reynold, in 1447, acknowledged her life interest and that of her second husband, Sir Thomas Grey, to Vaches Manor, first so called. She died early in 1451-52. She was survived by Sir Thomas Grey, for probably a few years only, as Vaches reverted to Reynold Lord Grey de Wilton, by whom it was alienated in 1456 to Thomas Grey, Lord Richemount, the owner since before 1452 of the other moiety of Shenley called Verdons. Reynold?s renunciation of right therefore applied to the whole manor of Shenley called Vaches and Verdons.?
Or died 13 Aug 1493?
REYNOLD GREY, Knt., 7th Lord Grey of Wilton, of Wilton, Herefordshire, Water Eaton (in Bletchley), Buckinghamshire, Shirland, Derbyshire, etc., son and heir by his father's 1st marriage, born about 1421 (aged 21 in 1442). He was summoned to Parliament from 13 Jan. 1444/5 to 12 August 1495, by writs directed Reginaldo Grey de Wilton'. He married before 29 Sept. 1447 TACINE OF SOMERSET, illegitimate daughter of John Beaufort, K.G., Duke of Somerset (descendant of King Edward III), by an unknown mistress [see TUDOR 10 for her ancestry]. She was evidently born in France during her father's long captivity there from 1421 to 1438. Being foreign born, she was made a denizen of England 20 June 1443. Reynold was with King Edward IV at the Battle of Mortimer's Cross 2 or 3 Feb. 1460/1, and accompanied the King in his expedition to the North in Nov. 1462. His wife, Tacine, was living in May 1469. He was present at the Coronation of King Richard III in 1483. SIR REYNOLD GREY, 7th Lord Grey of Wilton, died 22 Feb. 1493/4, and was buried at Bletchley, Buckinghamshire.
