After the murder of his father, he became the ward of the crown, along with Henry of Monmouth, eldest son and heir of Henry Bolingbroke. Richard II took both boys with him to Ireland in 1398, where they were left in custody at Kells, when Richard returned to face Bolingbroke. Once Richard II had been deposed, Henry Bolingbroke ordered their release and summoned them home but Humphrey, who was sickly, died on the way on 2 September 1399. His mother Eleanor de Bohun died shortly after, allegedly because of her sorrow after the loss of her son.
