About Catherine Neville, 2nd Baroness Hastings

Katherine Neville was the daughter of Sir Richard de Neville, 5th Earl of Salisbury and Alice Montagu, Countess of Salisbury.

Notes: left a widow at the age of eighteen. She did not, however, remain a widow for long; shortly before 6 Feb 1462 her brother Richard Neville, Earl of Warwick, arranged a marriage between her and William Hastings, 1st Baron Hastings, a close friend of Edward IV. On 9 Apr 1483, King Edward died; his son Edward V and kingdom were placed under the guardianship of his youngest brother Richard, Duke of Gloucester. It was Catherine's husband William Hastings who advised Richard to take the young King Edward V into protective custody immediately following the death of Edward IV. It was about this time that Catherine's husband became the lover of Jane Shore, a former mistress of both the late King Edward IV and her son-in-law, Thomas Grey, Marquess of Dorset. She encouraged him to enter into a conspiracy with the Woodville family against Gloucester. Richard, upon discovering Hastings' treachery ordered his immediate execution, which took place on 13 Jun 1483 at the Tower of London. Several weeks later, Richard sealed an indenture, swearing to take Catherine directly under his protection and to "secure for her the enjoyment of her husband's lands, goods, privileges, and the custody not only of their heir until the boy came of age but also the wardship of the young Earl of Shrewsbury who was married to their daughter, Anne". Richard assured Catherine that Hastings would never be attainted, and that she would be defended against any attempt by intimidation or fraud to deprive her of her rights. Shortly after Hastings' death, on 22 Jun, Richard proclaimed himself King of England. Catherine never remarried.

She married, firstly, William Bonville, 6th Lord Harington, son of William Bonville, circa 1458.

She married, secondly, Sir William Hastings, 1st Lord Hastings before 6 February 1461/62.1

She died before 22 November 1503
