His descendant, Sir Eustace de Whitney, who was M.P. for Herefordshire in 1312-1313, figures as party to the first deed in the collection, dated 1333. It was his grandson, Sir Robert de Whitney who in 1402 received a grant of the castles and lordships of Clifford and Glasbury from Henry IV. They were in consideration of the services of his father, the first Sir Robert, who was killed at the battle of Pilleth in 1401 while opposing the forces of Glyn Dwr. _<a href=""></a> d=39&term=Estate%20administration%20%7C%20England%20%7C%20Herefordshire_ (<a href=""></a>; term=Estate%20administration%20|%20England%20|%20Herefordshire) ************************************** See what's free at <a href=""></a>.
