EVENTS

On 17 Aug 1473 Richard York 1st Duke York, 1st Duke Norfolk was born to Edward IV King England (31) and Elizabeth Woodville Queen Consort England (36) at Westminster Palace

On 17 Aug 1473 Richard York 1st Duke York, 1st Duke Norfolk was created 1st Duke York (2C 1474)

In 1475 Richard York 1st Duke York, 1st Duke Norfolk (1) was appointed 215th Knight Garter: Edward IV

On 14 Jan 1476 Richard York 1st Duke York, 1st Duke Norfolk (2) by marriage 8th Earl Norfolk (3C 1312)

On 14 Jan 1476 John Mowbray 4th Duke Norfolk (31) died at Framlingham Castle. Suspicious since he was only 32. His only child Anne Mowbray 8th Earl Norfolk (3) who inherited the vast Mowbray estates was subsequently married to Richard York 1st Duke York, 1st Duke Norfolk (2) two years later. [Death of the Duke of Norfolk]

On 12 Jun 1476 Richard York 1st Duke York, 1st Duke Norfolk (2) was created 1st Earl Nottingham (3C 1476)

On 07 Feb 1477 Richard York 1st Duke York, 1st Duke Norfolk (3) was created 1st Duke Norfolk (2C 1481)

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]

Around 03 May 1483 Elizabeth Woodville Queen Consort England (46) took Sanctuary with Richard York 1st Duke York, 1st Duke Norfolk (9) and Thomas Grey 1st Marquess Dorset (28) . Her brother Lionel Woodville Bishop Salisbury was with her. [Elizabeth Woodville takes Sanctuary at Wesminster Abbey]

On 16 Jun 1483 Cardinal Thomas Bourchier (65) removed the younger brother of Edward V Richard York 1st Duke York, 1st Duke Norfolk (9) from Sanctuary to the Tower at Tower of London. Henry Stafford his grandfather 2nd Duke Buckingham (28) was present. [Richard, Duke of York, removed from Sanctuary to the Tower]

On 28 Jun 1483 John Howard 1st Duke Norfolk (58) was created 1st Duke Norfolk (3C 1483) by Richard III King England (30) . 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]

On 17 Jul 1483 Robert Brackenbury was appointed Constable Tower London for life meaning he was in direct care of The Princes in the Tower: Edward V King England (12) and his brother Richard York 1st Duke York, 1st Duke Norfolk (9) . [Robert Brackenbury appointed Contable of the Tower of London]

Around Aug 1483 Edward V King England (12) and his brother Richard York 1st Duke York, 1st Duke Norfolk (9) disappeared from the Tower of London. Thomas More reports, sometime after the event, that Richard III King England (30) requested Robert Brackenbury undertake the murder of the children. Upon Brackenbury's refusal Richard III King England (30) instructed Robert Brackenbury give the keys to the Tower to James Tyrrell (28) who would then undertake the task.
