BIOGRAPHY OF GEORGE NEVILLE 1ST DUKE BEDFORD 1461-1483

GENERAL

Paternal Family Tree: NEVILLE

EVENTS

Around 1461 George Neville 1st Duke Bedford was born to John Neville 1st Marquess Montagu (30) and Isabel Ingaldsthorpe (20)

On 27 Mar 1470 George Neville 1st Duke Bedford (9) was created 1st Duke Bedford (3C 1470) in preparation for his marriage to Elizabeth York Queen Consort England (4) which didn't, in the end, take place.

In 1474 Parliament declared Anne Beauchamp 16th Countess Warwick (47) legally dead (she lived until 1492) so that Edward IV King England (31) 's two younger brothers George York 1st Duke Clarence (24) and the future Richard III King England (21) , who had married Anne Beauchamp 16th Countess Warwick (47) 's daughters, Isabel Neville (22) and Anne Neville Queen Consort England (17) respectively, could enjoy Anne Beauchamp 16th Countess Warwick (47) 's significant inheritance after her husband Richard "Kingmaker" Neville 16th Earl Warwick, 6th Earl Salisbury had been killed at the Battle of Barnet in 1471. Some of the inhertance should have been given to George Neville 1st Duke Bedford (13) but he was only thirteen at the time; his father John Neville 1st Marquess Montagu, younger brother of Richard "Kingmaker" Neville 16th Earl Warwick, 6th Earl Salisbury, had also been killed at the Battle of Barnet. He, George Neville 1st Duke Bedford (13) , died in 1483 aged twenty-one somewhat conveniently after the death of Edward IV King England (31) and before Richard III King England (21) acceded to the throne. Curiously the Act of Parliament described Richard III King England (21) enjoying the inheritance as long as there were Neville living heirs male. Upon the death of George Neville 1st Duke Bedford (13) the Neville heir male was Richard Neville 2nd Baron Latimer Snape (6) born 1468 whose wardship was held by Cardinal Thomas Bourchier (56) . [Anne Neville declared Legally Dead]

In 1478 George Neville 1st Duke Bedford (17) denied his Dukedom by an Act of Parliament ostensibly for lack of money to maintain the style of a duke but more likely to ensure he didn't make claim on his inheritance.

On 04 May 1483 George Neville 1st Duke Bedford (22) died. He being the son of John Neville 1st Marquess Montagu, the nephew of Richard "Kingmaker" Neville 16th Earl Warwick, 6th Earl Salisbury who should, perhaps, have inherited the Earldoms of Warwick and Salisbury from his mother that had been appropriated by George Neville 1st Duke Bedford (22) and Richard III King England (30) .
