So shall it be with my father: he shall be
called a prince over his posterity, holding
the keys of the patriarchal priesthood over the kingdom of God on earth, even the Church
of the Latter Day Saints, and he shall sit in the general assembly of patriarchs, even in
council with the Ancient of Days when he shall sit and all the patriarchs with him and shall
enjoy his right and authority under the direction of the Ancient of Days.

    • Henry III (1 October 1207 – 16 November 1272), also known as Henry of Winchester, was King of England, Lord of Ireland, and Duke of Aquitaine from 1216 until his death.[1] The son of King John and Isabella of Angoulême, Henry assumed the throne when he was only nine in the middle of the First Barons' War. Cardinal Guala declared the war against the rebel barons to be a religious crusade and Henry's forces, led by William Marshal, defeated the rebels at the battles of Lincoln and Sandwich in 1217. Henry promised to abide by the Great Charter of 1225, which limited royal power and protected the rights of the major barons. His early rule was dominated first by Hubert de Burgh and then Peter des Roches, who re-established royal authority after the war. In 1230, the King attempted to reconquer the provinces of France that had once belonged to his father, but the invasion was a debacle. A revolt led by William Marshal's son, Richard, broke out in 1232, ending in a peace settlement negotiated by the Church.

      Henry was born in Winchester Castle on 1 October 1207.[2] He was the eldest son of King John and Isabella of Angoulême.[3] Little is known of Henry's early life.[4] He was initially looked after by a wet nurse called Ellen in the south of England, away from John's itinerant court, and probably had close ties to his mother.[5] Henry had four legitimate younger brothers and sisters – Richard, Joan, Isabella and Eleanor – and various older illegitimate siblings.[6] In 1212 his education was entrusted to Peter des Roches, the Bishop of Winchester; under his direction, Henry was given military training by Philip D'Aubigny and taught to ride, probably by Ralph of St Samson.[7]

      Little is known about Henry's appearance; he was probably around 1.68 metres (5 ft 6 in) tall, and accounts recorded after his death suggested that he had a strong build, with a drooping eyelid.[7][a] Henry grew up to occasionally show flashes of a fierce temper, but mostly, as historian David Carpenter describes, he had an "amiable, easy-going, and sympathetic" personality.[8] He was unaffected and honest, and showed his emotions readily, easily being moved to tears by religious sermons.[8]

      At the start of the 13th century, the Kingdom of England formed part of the Angevin Empire spreading across Western Europe. Henry was named after his grandfather, Henry II, who had built up this vast network of lands stretching from Scotland and Wales, through England, across the English Channel to the territories of Normandy, Brittany, Maine and Anjou in north-west France, onto Poitou and Gascony in the south-west.[9] For many years the French Crown was relatively weak, enabling first Henry II, and then his sons Richard and John, to dominate France.[10]

      In 1204, John lost Normandy, Brittany, Maine and Anjou to Philip II of France, leaving English power on the continent limited to Gascony and Poitou.[11] John raised taxes to pay for military campaigns to regain his lands, but unrest grew among many of the English barons; John sought new allies by declaring England a Papal fiefdom, owing allegiance to the Pope.[12][b] In 1215, John and the rebel barons negotiated a potential peace treaty, the Magna Carta. The treaty would have limited potential abuses of royal power, demobilised the rebel armies and set up a power-sharing arrangement, but in practice neither side complied with its conditions.[14] John and the loyalist barons firmly repudiated the Magna Carta and the First Barons' War erupted, with the rebel barons aided by Philip's son, the future Louis VIII, who claimed the English throne for himself.[11] The war soon settled into a stalemate, with neither side able to claim victory. The King became ill and died on the night of 18 October, leaving the nine-year-old Henry as his heir.[15]

      BIOGRAPHY: Descent From the English Crown - Henry III 1207-1272, King of England, 4th Plantagenet King, oldest son of King John and Isabella, b. Oct. 1, 1207, and came to the Throne of England when but nine years old. The country was ruled by Regents until 1227 when Henry declared of age and removed the Regents. His youth, inexperience and rough, rude nature soon created ill will from all classes of his subjects. He ignored the Courts, that had been created by his grandfather, Henry II, and handed down his own rulings to suit his pleasure, which was generally very harsh and severe, even for minor offenses. It should be expected that he soon would be at odds with the Parliament, The Courts and Church, and so it was. The feud became very bitter and strong opposition came from his brother, Richard, Earl of Cornwall and his brother-in-law, Simon deMonfort, Earl of Leisester, who actually took up arms against the King and took him prisoner, May 14, 1264. Simon de Montfort's control was short for he soon came in disagreement with the powerful Earl of Gloucester, who was joined by Edward, eldest son of King Henry III. Simon de Montfort was slain in battle in 1265. ------------------------------- Early Noble Holcroft Family - Thomas De Holcroft born c. 1270 of Holcroft, married Joan Culcheth. This data was compiled from Dr. Ward's 1988 word processor chart, Clair Evan's 1950 Pedigree Chart for H. Holcroft Esq. of Chipstead and "The Family of Holcroft" by Paul Rylands 1877. Another source was the Parish marriage and christening records. Thomas Fitz Hugh de Hindley changed his name to Thomas de Holcroft when he married Joan de Culcheth who was the possessor of the Holcroft portion of Gilbert de Culcheth estate. See Joan de Culcheth message line for the rest of the details - Joan: Gilbert de Culcheth was supposed to have been the son of Henry III who married Lady Cecilia de Lathom and died c. 1275, leaving his estates (Holcroft, Culcheth, Risley and Peafurlong) to his four daughters. A question arises, are there earlier Holcrofts since there was a Holcroft estate? ---------------------------------- Harris Descent From Norman and English Royal Lines- Henry III, 1207-1272, married Eleanor, d. 1291, daughter of Raymond, Provence. ---------------------- This family is continued in the Sanford file and in Royalty - Charlemagne is RIN 152 in Royalty and RIN 39573 in Sanford File.
