About Katherine Neville, Duchess of Norfolk

Katherine Neville, Duchess of Norfolk

Katherine Neville or Catherine de Neville (born c. 1400 – died after 1483[1]) was the eldest daughter of Ralph Neville, 1st Earl of Westmorland (1364–1425) and Joan Beaufort. Through her mother she was a granddaughter of John of Gaunt.[2]

On 12 January 1412, Katherine was married at the age of 12 to John Mowbray, 2nd Duke of Norfolk (1392–1432). Their only known child was John de Mowbray, 3rd Duke of Norfolk (1415–1461).

Katherine married for a second time to Thomas Strangeways (c. 1395-before 1442)[3] - they had 2 daughters:

  • Joan Strangeways, who married Sir William Willoughby. Their daughter Cecily married Edward Sutton, 2nd Baron Dudley.[4] They were ancestors of Herbert Hoover,[5] among many others.
  • Katherine Strangeways,[1] who married Henry Grey, 4th (7th) Baron Grey of Codnor.

She married for a third time to John, Viscount Beaumont, who was killed in 1460.

Her fourth and last marriage was infamous, known by contemporaries as the "diabolical marriage".[1] She married John Woodville, brother of Queen Elizabeth Woodville. He was 19 years old at the time of their marriage, while she was 65. Nonetheless, she survived him, as he was executed in 1469 after the Battle of Edgecote, on the orders of her nephew Richard Neville, 16th Earl of Warwick during a brief period of Lancastrian readeption. Whether or not she was forced into her final marriage against her will is unclear, but it added to the deep dislike of the Queen's family among the ruling class, which greatly weakened the Yorkist dynasty.[6]

She was still alive in 1483, having survived all her children.[1]

  • Mowbray, John (1389-1432) by James Tait
  • MOWBRAY, JOHN (V), second Duke of Norfolk (1389–1432), born in 1389, was the younger of the two sons of Thomas Mowbray I, first duke of Norfolk [q. v.], by his second wife, Elizabeth, sister and coheiress of Thomas, earl of Arundel (1381-1415). On the execution of his elder brother, Thomas Mowbray II [q. v.], in June 1405, John Mowbray became earl-marshal and fourth Earl of Nottingham, the ducal title having been withheld since the death of their father. In 1407 he was under the care of his great-aunt, the widow of Humphrey de Bohun, earl of Hereford (1341-1373) [q. v.], and mother-in-law of Henry IV. The latter, who was the youth's guardian, allowed her 200l. a year for his support, being double the provision made for him after his father's death (Ord. Privy Council, i. 100; Wylie, Henry IV). The king took him into his own custody in March 1410, but sixteen months later transferred him to that of the powerful Yorkshire neighbour of the Mowbrays, Ralph Nevill, first earl of Westmorland [q. v.], whom he had in 1399 invested for life with the office of marshal of England, previously hereditary in the Mowbray family (ib.) Westmorland, who was systematically marrying his daughters to the heirs of other great houses, at once contracted the earl-marshal to Catherine, his eldest daughter by his second wife, Joan Beaufort, the king's half-sister. The marriage license bears date 13 Jan. 1412 (Testamenta Eboracensia, iii. 321).
  • Mowbray was not given livery of his lands until a fortnight before Henry's death, two days after which he was summoned to Henry Vs first parliament as earl-marshal (Doyle, Official Baronage). There is some reason to believe that his father-in-law then resigned the office of marshal of England into his hands (Gregory, Chron. ; Rot. Parl. iv. 270). When the king discovered the Earl of Cambridge's plot on the eve of his expedition to France in July 1415, the earl-marshal was the chief member of the judicial commission which investigated the conspiracy (ib. iv. 65). He was one of the peers who subsequently (5 Aug.) passed final sentence upon Cambridge and Lord le Scrope (ib. p. 66). A few days later he crossed to France with the king, and took part in the siege of Harfleur at the head of fifty men-at-arms and 150 horse-archers (DOYLE). But he was presently seized with illness, and was invalided home (Walsingham, ii. 309). The statement in Harleian MS. 782 that he was present at Agincourt must be wrong (Doyle). From the summer of 1417, however, he was constantly in France. He took a prominent part in the siege of Caen in August 1417, and in that of Rouen twelvemonths later (Gesta Henrici V, pp. 124, 270 ; Paston Letters, i. 10 ; Historical Collections of a London Citizen, ed. Camden Soc., pp. 7, 23 ; Walsingham, ii. 322). At the beginning of 1419 the towns of Gournay and Neufchastel in Bray, between Dieppe and Beauvais, were placed in his charge (Doyle). In April and May of the following year he and the Earl of Huntingdon were covering the siege of Fresnay le Vicomte in Maine by the Earl of Salisbury, and on 16 May routed the Dauphin's forces near Le Mans, slaying five thousand men, including a hundred Scots (Walsingham, ii. 331 ; Elmham, p. 244 ; Gesta Henrici V, pp. 133-4; R. Triger, Fresnay le Vicomte in Revue Historique du Maine, 1886, xix. 189). The author of the 'Gesta' (p. 144) says he was present at the protracted siege of Melun, which began in July. It is doubtful whether he returned to England with the king in February 1421 and bore the second sceptre at Catherine's coronation (Gregory, p. 139 ; Three Fifteenth-Century Chronicles, p. 57 ; but cf. Walsingham, ii. 336). Henry had appointed him governor of Pontoise before his departure, and he witnessed a document at Rouen in the middle of April (Doyle ; Memoires de la Société des Antiquités de Normandie, 1858, vol. xxiii. pt. i. No. 1498). Shortly after (3 May) he was given the Garter vacated by the death of Sir John Grey (Beltz, Memorials of the Garter, p. clviii).
  • The earl-marshal was present in the council which decided on 5 Nov. 1422 that the Duke of Gloucester should conduct the first parliament of Henry VI as royal commissioner, and not as regent, and on 9 Dec. he was nominated one of the five earls in the new council appointed to carry on the government with the protector (Rot. Parl. iv. 175 ; Ord. Privy Council, iii. 6, 16, iv. 101). In May 1423 he and Lord Willoughby took reinforcements to France, and, after perhaps sharing in the victory of Cravant (30 July), he assisted the Burgundian commander, John of Luxemburg, in expelling the French from the districts of Laon and Guise (ib. pp. 87, 101 ; Wavrin, pp. 33, 70-5). With only six hundred English he scattered the Count of Toulouse's force, and, driving part of them into the fortress of La Follye, captured and destroyed it (ib.) In November 1424 Mowbray joined Gloucester in his impolitic invasion of Hainault, and in the last days of the year ravaged Brabant up to the walls of Brussels (Stevenson, Wars of the English in France, ii. 399, 409; Löher, Jakobaa von Bayern, ii. 154, 172). He returned with Gloucester to England in time for the parliament which met on 30 April 1425 (Report on the Dignity of a Peer, iv. 861). Much of his attention was devoted to endeavours to secure a recognition of his precedence over the Earl of Warwick (Rot. Parl. iv. 262-73; Ord. Privy Council, iii. 174). After the proceedings had been protracted over several weeks, a compromise suggested by the commons was accepted, by which parliament decided that the earl-marshal was by right Duke of Norfolk (Rot. Parl. iv. 274); on 14 July, therefore, Mowbray did homage as Duke of Norfolk. On the death of his mother a week later (8 July) her rich jointure estates, mostly lying in Norfolk and Suffolk, reverted to him, and Framlingham Castle in the latter county became his chief seat (Dugdale, Baronage, i. 130; Paston Letters, i. 15-18).
  • In March 1426, Norfolk, with eight other peers, undertook to arbitrate between Gloucester and Beaufort, and two years later (3 March 1428) helped to repel Gloucester's attempt to assert ' auctorite of governance of the lond ' (Rot. Parl. iv. 297, 327). On the night of 8 Nov. in this latter year he narrowly escaped drowning by the capsizing of his barge in passing under London Bridge (Gregory; Will. Worc. p. 760). He officiated as marshal of England at the coronation of Henry VI on, 6 Nov. 1429, and with many other nobles accompanied him to France in the following April (Gregory, p. 168; Ramsay, Lancaster and York, i. 415; cf. Ord. Privy Council, iv. 36; Rot. Parl. v. 415). The duke accompanied Duke Philip of Burgundy when he received the surrender of Gournay en Aronde, and distinguished himself during the summer in the capture of Dammartin and other places east of Paris (Wavrin, pp. 373, 393; Monstrelet, iv. 398, 405; Chron. London, pp. 170-1).
  • Norfolk was in London when Gloucester effected a change of ministers at the end of February 1432, and on 7 May he, with other peers, was warned not to bring a greater retinue than usual to the approaching parliament (Ord. Privy Council, iv. 113, vi. 349; Fœdera, x. 501). He attended a council early in June, but died on 19 Oct. following at the ancient seat of his family at Epworth in the isle of Axholme, and was buried by his own direction in the neighbouring Cistercian priory which his father had founded.
  • The alabaster tomb which Leland saw there may have been his (Itinerary, i. 39). One will (20 May 1429), abstracted by Dugdale, contains an injunction that his father's ashes should be brought from Venice and laid beside his own. By his last will, made on the day of his death, he left all his estates in the isle of Axholme and in Yorkshire, with the castles and honours of Bramber in Sussex and Gower in Wales, to his wife, Catherine Nevill, for her life (Nichols, Royal Wills, p. 226). Dugdale adds a list of nearly thirty manors or portions of manors in Norfolk and six other counties which were also included in her jointure (Baronage, i. 131; cf. Rot. Parl. vi. 168). But their only son, John Mowbray VI [q. v.], who succeeded his father as third Duke Norfolk, only enjoyed a small part of his patrimony, because his mother survived him as well as two more husbands viz. Thomas Strangeways, and John, viscount Beaumont (d. 1460). At the age, it is said, of nearly eighty she was moreover married by Edward IV to a youth of twenty, Sir John Wydeville, brother of the queen, a marriage which William Worcester denounces as a 'diabolic match' (Annals, p. 783). She was still living in January 1478 (Rot. Parl. vi. 169).
