Information about this person:
• Background Information. 141
Henry Tyeys, in 1221 was granted lands in Tywarnhaile, Cornwall, to sustain him in the King's service, and he probably acquired lands in Devon at the same time, for in 1223 the sheriff of that co. was ordered to seize Henry's lands. In 1224 he was given 10 marks to help him to buy a horse; and the appearance of his name among those who were granted writs of protection in March 1225, for going to Gascony with Richard of Cornwall, marks the beginning of a close association of this family with the Earls of Cornwall. In 1230 he was given the manor of Grendon Underwood, Bucks, in lieu of the fee of £10 per annum which he was receiving from the Crown; and more royal gifts were made to him in 1234 and 1240. The name of his wife and the date of his death are not known.
