Notes: who while serving in Ireland incurred the enmity of Robert Devereux, Earl of Essex, and of Henry Wriothesley, Earl of Southampton; and after fighting against Spain in the Netherlands he was a member of the court which sentenced these two noblemen to death in 1602. On the accession of James I he was arrested for his share in the "Bye plot", an attempt made by William Watson and others to seize the King. He was tried and sentenced to death, but the sentence was not carried out and he remained in prison until his death. He displayed both ability and courage at his trial, remarking after sentence had been passed, "the house of Wilton hath spent many lives in their prince's service and Grey cannot beg his". Like his father Grey was a strong Puritan. He left no children and his barony became extinct.
