    Sir Henry de Hastings of Fillongley, Warwickshire.
    he was born c.1194 and died before 9 Aug 1250 in England.

    He was of Ashill in Norfolk, Blunham in Co. Bedford and Ledgate in Suffolk.
    He was hereditary Steward of the Liberty of Bury St. Edmonds.

    Henry was the son of William de Hastings (d.c.1226)* and Margaret Bigod, whose father was Roger Bigod, 2nd Earl of Norfolk. (see MCA page 297) (see file More 4 # 13 & MCA 2 # 2)

    *William de Hastings took part in negotiations for the release of King Richard from prison in Europe (Feb. 1194) on his way home from the Crusades and was rewarded when

    the king returned home. He was among those earls which obtained King John’s assent to the Magna Carta, and his name appears among the signatories to the document.

    The Hastings name in England, from the 1848 book The Roll of Battle Abbey:
    Robert, Steward to William of Normandy, accompanied the expedition to England, and was rewarded with the Lordship of Fillongley, Co. Warwick. He received the appointment of Portgrave of Hastings, and thence arose a surname, which his illustrious descendants rendered renowned in the cabinet (politics) and in the field (military). Robert’s successor, Walter de Hastings, became steward to Henry I, as owner of the manor of Ashills, Co. Norfolk, which he held on condition of taking charge of the naperie (table linen) at the Coronation.

    Note: Maud Marshal’s 1st husband Hugh Bigod (our ancestors -see More 1 # 11, More 12(1), More 8C & More 8E) was a son of Roger Bigod and brother of Margaret.

    In Fillongley, the Hastings family occupied a fortified manor house.

    She was a daughter of William de Cantelou* (d. 1254) (see More 9 # 10B) of Calne, Co. Wiltshire, and Eva de Braose. Eva’s sister Maud de Braose married Sir Roger de Mortimer.

    See More 3 # 4. Eva and Maud de Braose were daughters of Eva Marshal, a daughter of William Marshal, “The Greatest Knight”.

    Joan de Cantelupe was a sister of George de Cantelupe Lord of Bergavenny and on his death in 1273 without issue the lordship went to Joan.

    *The Cantelou family from the 1951 book “Anglo-Norman Families” states that this family name was from Dieppe in Normandy:

    Cantelou, de Kantilupo.Canteleu: Seine-Inferieure, arrondissment Dieppe, cantoment Bacqueville, commune Luneray.

    * This name appears in many forms - Cantelou, Cantelowe, Cantelupe, de Kantilupo.
