| Sir Henry
de Green of Boughton, b 1311, d 1369-70 Lord
Chief Justice 24th May 1361 till 29th Oct. 1365. He was an English
lawyer, and Chief Justice of the King's Bench from May 24, 1361 to October
29, 1365. He probably came from Northamptonshire. Early in his career he
served both Queen Isabella and Edward
the Black Prince. He was made justice of the Court of Common Pleas
in 1354, and knighted by King Edward III. In 1357 he was excommunicated
for non-appearance at the trial of Thomas de Lisle, bishop of Ely, in Avignon.
In 1365, while Chief Justice, he was arrested along with Sir William Skipwith, the chief baron of the exchequer, and stripped of his office. The charges were probably corruption; both Green and Skipwith were fined for their offences. Although he was never again employed by the courts, he kept his considerable estates. He died in 1369, and was buried in the church in Boughton in Northamptonshire. At his death his possessions descended on his two sons Henry and Thomas. Henry Green the younger was executed in 1399 as a councillor of Richard II.
