Before 7 October 1264 he married Joan de Quincy, who was 19 in 1264. They had no children.
In 1254 Humphrey was given a royal grant of 80 marks a year until King Henry III could furnish him with lands of that value.
In 1257 he helped his father keep the marches between Montgomery (held by the Bohuns) and Glamorgan (held by the Earl of Gloucester). In 1263 he helped his father defend his territories and castles against Llywelyn ap Gruffudd.
In 1263 he joined the baronial rebellion which coalesced around Simon de Montfort. That year he and other barons were excommunicated for plundering churches. In the Battle of Lewes (14 May 1264) he was one of the chief rebel leaders. That summer he is recorded as having custody of Winchester Castle (which he was ordered to surrender on 3 June 1265) and Lundy Island.
Battle of Evesham, and Death
On 4 August 1265 he was taken prisoner at the Battle of Evesham, and he was subsequently held at Beeston Castle, Cheshire, where he died on 27 October 1265. He was buried at Combermere Abbey, Cheshire. His lands in Gloucestershire, Huntingdonshire and Essex, which had been forfeit to Henry III, and which had been granted by his father to him for life and then to his heirs by his second marriage to Joan de Quincy, were restored to his father on 12 November 1265. His son Humphrey inherited other castles and manors.
Estimated birth year: His birth date is uncertain, but was likely before 1230, considering his heir was born in September 1248. His mother died in 1241, having borne eight children, of whom he was the eldest son, so he had to have been born no later than about 1234.
Disputed daughter: Some trees on the internet also show Humphrey de Bohun and Eleanor de Brewes with a daughter Mary, who married Raoul (Ralph) de Toeni. No documentation has been found for such a daughter.

Not having had any responses to my last comment, I have cut down the number of profile managers so that it is now within Wikitree guidelines. And thank you to Fontaine for removing himself. Those who have ceased to be profile managers remain on the trusted list and should still be alerted to changes to the profile through your Wikitree feed. If anyone has a particular yearning to be reinstated as a manager, please let me know.
We have rather more managers for this profile than Wikitree recommends. If you would like to remain a manager, please could you either post a comment here or send me a private message, mentioning the Wikitree ID (Bohun-5) of this profile. Otherwise you will be removed as a manager but remain on the Trusted List: changes to the profile should still appear in your Wikitree activity feed, so you will still be able to keep an eye on the profile.
In a series of edits I have replaced lengthy copy-and-paste text from other websites etc with factual sourced material, eliminating substantial duplication of information in the process, and generally tidied up the bio and sources..
Hello PMs! Wanted to let you know that I'll be working on documenting Thomas Owsley's Magna Carta Trail on behalf of the Magna Carta Project. Please don't hesitate to reach out if you have any questions.
