    Notes on Henry de Grey
    By Geneva Swis, Posted on Ancestry.com

    Lord Grey of Wilton on Wye
    At Henry de Grey's death, he is stated to hold the manor of "Weldebernye" in Debden of the Countess of Hereford (a Bohun descendant). The passage of this manor down to John de Grey's son, Henry, and thence to his heirs gives evidence that Henry was in fact the son of John de Grey's wife, Maud de Verdun. [Douglas Richardson]
