Henri de Sully, Warden of the Isles 1323

The appointment of de Sully as Warden is a strange one. First of all he was French, and secondly he appears to have died before being able to take office.

Henri, born in 1282 in Sully, Berry, France, was Seigneur de Sully when, by letters patent of 9 June 1323 Edward II appointed him Warden from the time when the islands reverted to the King on the death of Lord of the Isles Otto de Grandison.

However, the appointment never took effect and it is assumed that by the time de Grandison died in 1328, de Sully was already dead.
