On 29 Aug 1475 Edward IV King England (33) received a pension of 50,000 crowns per year as a result of having signed the Treaty of Picquigny; in effect a non-aggression pact. Cardinal Thomas Bourchier (57) arbitrated on behalf of Edward. William Hastings 1st Baron Hastings (44) received a pension of 2000 crowns per year. John Howard 1st Duke Norfolk (50) and Thomas Montgomery 1200 each, Thomas Rotherham Archbishop York 1000, Cardinal John Morton 600. Richard III King England (22) opposed the Treaty considering it dishonourable.

On 15 Jan 1478 Richard York 1st Duke York, 1st Duke Norfolk (4) and Anne Mowbray 8th Earl Norfolk (5) were married at St Stephen's Chapel. An attractive match for Edward IV's second son since Anne Mowbray had inherited the vast Mowbray inheritance in 1476 when her father John Mowbray 4th Duke Norfolk (33) died. The ceremony was attended by Elizabeth York Queen Consort England (11) , Mary York (10) and Cecily York (8) . The day before Thomas Howard 2nd Duke Norfolk (35) was knighted In 1483 Parliament changed the succession so Richard York 1st Duke York, 1st Duke Norfolk (4) would continue to enjoy her inheritance (she died in 1481) effectively dis-inheriting William Berkeley 1st Marquess Berkeley (52) (who was subsequently created Earl and Marquess) and John Howard 1st Duke Norfolk (53) (who would become an ardent supporter of Richard III following Edward's death. [Marriage of Richard Duke of York and Anne Mowbray]

In Jan 1483 Edward IV King England (40) had Parliament re-enact earlier legislation regarding the Mowbray succession so that his son, Richard York 1st Duke York, 1st Duke Norfolk (9) , who had married Anne Mowbray 8th Earl Norfolk (10) (who had died in 1481), would continue to benefit from them effectively dis-inheriting William Berkeley 1st Marquess Berkeley (57) (who was subsequently created Earl and Marquess) and John Howard 1st Duke Norfolk (58) (who would become an ardent supporter of Richard III following Edward's death. [Mowbray Succession Changed]

On 20 Apr 1483 Edward IV King England (40) was buried at Altar during the Funeral of Edward IV. Thomas Rotherham Archbishop York celebrated the mass. John Howard 1st Duke Norfolk (58) attended.

William Berkeley 1st Marquess Berkeley (57) was created 1st Earl Nottingham (4C 1483). Significant insofar as both men were heirs to the vast Mowbray estates that had been inherited by Anne Mowbray 8th Earl Norfolk (10) who had then been married to Richard York 1st Duke York, 1st Duke Norfolk (9) . Richard York 1st Duke York, 1st Duke Norfolk (9) 's father Edward IV King England (41) had attempted by very flawed legal process to legislate so that even in the event of Anne's death his son Richard would continue to benefit from the inheritance. Richard III King England (30) was restoring John Howard 1st Duke Norfolk (58) and William Berkeley 1st Marquess Berkeley (57) to their rightful inheritance. [Richard III Rewards his Supporters]
