 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.
