251 He had order for livery of his lands, without proof of age, 14 May 1498. (Percy), Henry Algernon 5th Earl of Northumberland (I1987)
 
252 He held a command in the right wing at Therouenne in 1513. (Stafford), Edward 3rd Duke of Buckingham (I768)
 
253 He held numerous other official appointments in the North—e.g. Commissioner to treat with the Scots, 1471–73, 1483, 1484, 1488; of array in the Northern counties, 1472; Justice of the Forests North of Trent and constable of Bamborough Castle, 5 June 1471; constable of Dunstanborough and Knaresborough Castles; constable and porter of the castle of Newcastle-upon-Tyne, 5 March 1473/74. By Henry VII he was made bailiff of Tyndale, Northumberland, in 1486. (Percy), Henry 4th Earl of Northumberland (I763)
 
254 He held the manors of North Cliff, Sledmere, Newsham, and Broughton by Malton of others than the King. Constable, Robert (I1943)
 
255 He is called "Earl of Buckingham and Stafford," when created a Duke (1444) according to the recital of that creation in the Parliamentary settlement of his precedency. In an indenture 13 Feb. (1443/4) 22 Hen. VI he is styled "The Right Mighty Prince Humphrey, Earl of Buckingham, Hereford, Stafford, Northampton, and Perche, Lord of Brecknock and Holderness." He did not, however, add thereto the title of "Earl of Essex," though his grandfather, Thomas, Duke of Gloucester and Earl of Buckingham, had assumed that title, (as well as those of Hereford and Northampton) having married the daughter and co-heiress of Humphrey (de Bohun), Earl of Hereford, Essex, and Northampton. The Earldom of Perche was a foreign title and the Lordships of Brecknock and Holderness were not peerage dignities. (Stafford), Humphrey 1st Duke of Buckingham (I742)
 
256 He is said to have been with the (Lancastrian) Duke of Exeter at Hull in 1460, awaiting Queen Margaret's arrival, having been personally summoned by the Queen. (Neville), George 1st Lord Latimer (I897)
 
257 He laid claim to this office, as his hereditary right, in 1514. He claimed the Lord High Constableship as heir of Humphrey de Bohun, Earl of Hereford, who, it was stated, "held the manors of Harlefield, Newnam, and Whytenhurst [Haresfield, Newnham, and Wheatenhurst], in the county of Gloucester of the King by the service of being Constable of England." The judges decided that the office should "have continuance in the Duke notwithstanding that one of the three manors has come to the hands of our Lord the King; for otherwise it will ensue that the Duke will have the two other manors without doing any service for them, and so the Duke is compellable at the pleasure of the King to do and exercise the office." For an account of the confusion into which the judges were led by their misconception of the nature of the tenure of this office, which was not in fact attached to the manors but was an office held in fee; and of the confusion worse confounded in which Law Lords and Counsel in modern peerage cases have been involved owing to their blind acceptance of the decision in this case, see J. H. Round's Peerage and Pedigree (vol. i, pp. 147–166), where an amusing exposure of legal methods is given in the article termed "The Muddle of the Law." See also Appendix D in The Complete Peerage, volume II (1912). (Stafford), Edward 3rd Duke of Buckingham (I768)

259 He mentions Elizabeth his 1st wife, late baroness of Greystoke, Beatrice his wife, Elizabeth (unmarried) daughter of Robert Greystoke kt. deceased, and John Greystoke his son and heir male. (de Greystoke), Ralph 5th Lord Greystoke (I1756)

263 He received a writ of livery of the earldom and honour of Leicester, 29 March 1324 (the castle of Kenilworth excepted), becoming thereby Earl of Leicester, and possibly Steward of England. (Plantagenet), Henry 3rd Earl of Lancaster and of Leicester, Count of Provence (I596)
