The Greene family and its branches from A.D861 to A.D1904 . Henry Greeneshead for no other crime than having been a good serant to his lawful king, he made every Greene a Yorkist to the marrow of his bones. If they saved their lives, they suffered other ways. Their estates wereraided, and the Lords sometimes mulcted for large sums of money. KingHenry the VII, who never forgot he was of Lancaster, even though the Warof the Rosen was a thing of the past, had the meanness to throw the lastLord Greene into prison in 1506 on a charge of plotting treason. The in-firm old man was then so near death that he died before the year was out.He was released, but not until the grasping king was richer. By a curiousturn of fortunes wheel, the feeble old lords granddaughter Catharine cameto sit upon the throne of England, as the wife of the harsh kings son. Lady Anne Greene, daughter of the last Lord Greene, married BaronVaux of Harrowden. We are not able to trace her line. Thomas, LordVaux, a cousin of Queen Catharine Parr, had command over the Isle of Jer- I.
