About Sir Edward Neville

Edward Neville

Sir Edward Neville (1471 – 8 December 1538) was an English courtier. He was born at Abergavenny, Monmouthshire. He was the son of George Nevill, 4th Baron Bergavenny and Margaret Fenne. He married Eleanor Windsor, daughter of Andrew Windsor, 1st Baron Windsor and Elizabeth Blount, before 6 April 1529. He was the brother of George Nevill, 5th Baron Bergavenny and the two of them became close to King Henry VIII (their distant cousin) and the Queen, Catherine of Aragon.[1]

Edward Neville was Esquire of the Body, and Keeper of Sewer (official overseeing service) to Henry VIII's household. He lived at Addington Park, Kent, England. On 25 September 1513 he was invested as a Knight and in 1516 held the offices of Master of the Hounds and Gentleman of the Privy Chamber.

The Nevilles and their cousins the Courtenays supported Catherine of Aragon's marriage and for the Pope's authority in England, which alienated King Henry. But Edward seems to have kept the King's favour as late as 1535.[2] He was Henry's Standard Bearer in 1531, and in 1534 he was Constable of Leeds Castle in Kent.

But a few years later Henry turned against him. Early in 1538, Henry's chief minister Thomas Cromwell was warned that Edward Neville was secretly trying to obtain the estates of Moatenden Priory, which had been recently dissolved.

Cromwell, after the death of the Earl of Northumberland in 1537, had marked its property for his own. After the Pilgrimage of Grace, many conservative nobles were accused of treason.[3] Neville was arrested on 3 November 1538, for conspiracy, along with his cousin Henry Pole. They were charged with high treason for conspiracy with Henry's exiled brother, Cardinal Reginald Pole: "devising to maintain, promote, and advance [Cardinal Pole], late Dean of Exeter, enemy of the King, beyond the sea, and to deprive the King." Neville was sent to the Tower, tried at Westminster, and beheaded on 8 December at Tower Hill.

A patent was issued to Cromwell confirming his estate, possession and interest in the site of the late priory, of Mottenden, and the manors of Mottenden, Plushenden, Plomford, and Delmynden in Kent; the rectory of Lancing, Sussex, and all tithes thereto belonging; the advowson of the parish church of Lancing and the vicarage of the same church; a saltmarsh in Canwynden alias Derwishop, Essex; and all lands, &c., in the counties of Kent, Sussex, and Essex, late of John Gregory alias John Harietsham, late minister of the Trinitarian priory of Mottenden.

Children of Sir Edward Neville and Eleanor.

  • 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.

Sir Edward Neville (1471 – 8 December 1538) was a nobleman born at Abergavenny, Monmouthshire. He was the son of Sir George Neville, 2nd Lord Abergavenny and Margaret Fenne. He married Eleanor Windsor, daughter of Sir Andrew Windsor, 1st Baron Windsor and Elizabeth Blount, before 6 April 1529. He became a close friend and gentleman of the Privy Chamber to his distant cousin, Henry VIII.[1]

He was the brother of George Nevill, 5th Baron Bergavenny and the two of them became close to Henry VIII and Catherine of Aragon.[2] The support of the Nevilles and their cousins the Courtenays, for Catherine of Aragon's marriage and for the Pope's authority in England, led to the execution of Edward Neville and many of his relatives. Yet even in 1535, Neville did not seem to have lost the King's favour.[3]

Early in 1538, Thomas Cromwell was warned that Sir Edward Neville was endeavoring to persuade the minister of Mottenden secretly to surrender his house. But Cromwell, who was now, after the death of the earl of Northumberland in 1537, honoured with the title of founder of the priory, had marked its property for his own. After the Pilgrimage of Grace, many conservative nobles were accused of treason.[4] Neville was arrested on 3 November 1538, for conspiracy with the brother of Cardinal Pole, they were both charged with high treason for promoting the interests of his cousin, Reginald Pole and Neville was sent to the Tower, tried at Westminster, and beheaded, 8 December at Tower Hill.

A patent was issued to Cromwell confirming his estate, possession and interest in the site of the late priory, of Mottenden, and the manors of Mottenden, Plushenden, Plomford, and Delmynden in Kent; the rectory of Lancing, Sussex, and all tithes thereto belonging; the advowson of the parish church of Lancing and the vicarage of the same church; a saltmarsh in Canwynden alias Derwishop, Essex; and all lands, &c., in the counties of Kent, Sussex, and Essex, late of John Gregory alias John Harietsham, late minister of the Trinitarian priory of Mottenden.

Sir Edward Neville was Esquire of the Body, and keeper of Sewer (official overseeing service) to King Henry VIII's Household. He lived at Addington Park, Kent, England. On 25 September 1513 he was invested as a Knight and in 1516 held the offices of Master of the Hounds and Gentleman of the Chamber. He held the office of King Henry VIII's Standard Bearer in 1531and in 1534 he held the office of Constable of Leeds Castle, Kent.
