  • On 10 Oct. 1588, Henry Neville, Edward’s cousin, was chosen burgess for New Windsor, where his father was high steward; on 24 Oct. Edward Neville was sworn ‘brother assistant’ of Windsor, and the following day was returned to Parliament for the borough, ‘because Henry Neville, esquire, was chosen a knight for Sussex’. This record of the election on 24 Oct., quoted from Ashmole’s transcripts of the borough manuscripts (the originals are now lost), continues: ‘but he [Edward Neville] served not, for that the Lord Bergavenny died before the Parliament’. Clearly, the remark ‘but he served not’, cannot have been a part of the original entry in the borough minutes for 24 or 25 October, and may well be Ashmole’s own comment. In fact, Neville’s father did not die until 10 Feb. 1589, when the Parliament was a week old, and it was another 16 years before Neville was summoned to Parliament as a peer. Therefore, it is quite likely that he did sit in the Commons in 1589, although he is not reported to have taken part in its proceedings. It is improbable—since, like his father, he called himself Lord Bergavenny—that he sought to be returned to another Parliament as a Member of the Commons; the ‘Edward Neville, gentleman’ who sat for New Windsor in 1593 was probably another of his cousins.3
  • The protests of Lady Fane against Neville’s assumption of the title led to a hearing of the dispute in 1598, before the Earl of Essex and other commissioners for the office of earl marshal. Despite Neville’s vigorous advancement of precedents for the descent of titles by entail, the matter was left in suspense until an arrangement between the parties was reached at the beginning of James I’s reign, as a result of which Neville was summoned to Parliament in May 1604. Lady Fane carried her feud with Neville into the 1601 Parliament, endeavouring unsuccessfully to prevent him disposing of certain copyhold lands.4
  • At the hearing before the Earl of Essex, Neville had as ally his brother-in-law, Sampson Lennard, who was himself claiming the barony of Dacre of the South. Endowed with great estates, Neville was able to arrange good matches for his children. His eldest son, Sir Henry Neville, married the daughter of his Kent neighbour, Thomas Sackville, Lord Treasurer Buckhurst; at the election of 1601 Sir Henry was supported by (Sir) Robert Sidney as a candidate for the senior seat in Kent, for which he competed with Lady Fane’s son. One of Neville’s daughters married Sir John Grey; another George Goring, later 1st Earl of Norwich. Neville himself held no great offices and had little influence of his own: he and his sons were returned to Parliament in Elizabeth’s reign through the influence of their Berkshire relatives or Kent friends. Neville lost three of his younger sons, drowned off Gravesend, in March 1616, and was himself, according to John Chamberlain, killed by the cold of December 1622.5

  • Neville, Edward (d.1538) by William Arthur Jobson Archbold
  • NEVILLE, Sir EDWARD (d. 1538), courtier, was third but second surviving son of George, second baron Bergavenny, by his first wife, Margaret, daughter of Sir Hugh Fenne, under-treasurer of England. His brothers George, third lord Bergavenny [q. v.], and Sir Thomas Neville [q. v.] of Mereworth, speaker of the House of Commons, are separately noticed. Edward Neville was prominent at the court when Henry VIII came to the throne. He held the offices of sewer of the household and squire of the king's body, and from time to time received grants from the crown. He took part in the expeditions made into France in 1512 and 1513, in the latter year serving in the king's guard, in a division to which Lord Bergavenny and John Neville were also attached. On 25 Sept. 1513 he was knighted at Tournay. On 20 Oct. 1514 he landed at Calais, in disguise, with Charles Brandon [q. v.], then viscount Lisle, and afterwards duke of Suffolk, and Sir William Sydney, all three going to Paris for the coronation of the Princess Mary, who had married Louis XII. In 1516 he was a gentleman of the privy chamber and master of the buckhounds. He was present at the Field of the Cloth of Gold in 1520. He was of the party of the Duke of Buckingham, who is said to have relied upon him to counteract the influence of Lord Bergavenny at court, and gave him in 1521 a doublet of silver cloth. Although in 1521 he was forbidden the court for a time, he was soon restored to favour, and acted as ‘herbeger’ at Charles V's visit in 1522. In 1523 he held a command in the army in France (State Papers, vi. 170). In 1524 he was a commissioner for the collection of the subsidy in Kent, and in 1526 he had a grant of privilege to export a large quantity of wood from Kent and Sussex, which was afterwards rather oddly revoked. In 1531 he was the king's standard-bearer; he took an official part in the coronation of Anne Boleyn in 1533, and on 27 June 1534 was made constable of Leeds Castle in Kent. At the baptism of Prince Edward in 1537 Neville was one of those who bore the canopy.
  • Suddenly, in 1538, Neville was found to be concerned in the conspiracy of the Poles. Early in November he was sent to the Tower with Exeter and Montagu [see Pole, Henry, 1492–1539]. He was tried in Westminster Hall on 4 Dec., and beheaded on Tower Hill on 8 Dec. 1538. He lived chiefly at Aldington, Kent, was reputed a fine soldier, and was a handsome courtier. But the rumour as to his being a son of Henry VIII, whom he resembled (Notes and Queries, 1st ser. ii. 307), is obviously refuted by the probable dates of their respective births, though it was revived as a joke by Queen Elizabeth.
  • Neville married Eleanor, daughter of Andrew, lord Windsor, and widow of Ralph, lord Scrope of Upsall, and left several children. Of his sons, Edward of Newton St. Loe, on the death of Henry, fourth lord Bergavenny, in 1587, claimed the barony, but died 10 Feb. 1589 before he was summoned to parliament. He left, however, by Catherine, daughter of Sir John Brome, a son, also called Edward, who was summoned to parliament as sixth Lord Bergavenny on 25 May 1604. Sir Edward Neville had a second son, Sir Henry Neville of Billingbear [q. v.], who is separately noticed, and through him he was grandfather of Sir Henry Neville (d. 1615) [q. v.] His four daughters were all married.
