Sir Henry Grey the Baron Grey of Codnor castle in Derbyshire is 36 years of age in January of 1471. His father died when Henry was only nine years old and thus he was fostered for most of his life in the household of the 12th Earl of Oxford Sir John De Vere. Sworn to King Henry VI and the House of Lancaster, Baron grey fought at Northampton in 1460 and the Second Battle of St. Albans in the year 1461. At Second St. Albans he was wounded and his cousin Sir Benjamin Grey was slain. He is known for his dalliance in alchemy mixing and at times consuming potions and other mixes.
At the Battle of Towton he was wounded by a Yorkist arrow and most of his small household retinue slain or otherwise scattered in the bloodiest battle of the Wars of the Roses thus far. After the execution of the Earl of Oxford he was pardoned by King Edward IV and his Yorkist court. He is unmarried and is uncommitted.
