  • Richard Neville, 2nd Baron Latimer (c.1468 – c. 28 December 1530) of Snape, North Yorkshire, was an English soldier and peer. He fought at the battles of Stoke and Flodden.
  • Richard Neville was the eldest son of Sir Henry Neville, who was killed on 26 July 1469 at the Battle of Edgecote Moor, and Joan Bourchier (d. 7 October 1470), daughter of John Bourchier, 1st Baron Berners, by Margery, daughter and heiress of Richard Berners, esquire. He had a brother, Thomas Neville, and a sister, Joan Neville, wife of Sir James Radcliffe.[1]
  • Neville's maternal grandfather, John Bourchier, 1st Baron Berners, was the fourth son of William Bourchier, 1st Count of Eu in Normandy, and his wife Anne of Gloucester, daughter of Thomas of Woodstock, youngest son of King Edward III. By her second husband, Edmund Stafford, 5th Earl of Stafford, Anne of Gloucester was the mother of Humphrey Stafford, 1st Duke of Buckingham.[2]
  • On his father's side, Richard Neville was the grandson of George Neville, 1st Baron Latimer (d. 30 or 31 December 1469), and Elizabeth Beauchamp, the daughter of Richard de Beauchamp, 13th Earl of Warwick.[3]
  • .... etc.
  • Richard Neville married firstly, about 1490, Anne Stafford, daughter of Sir Humphrey Stafford of Grafton, Worcestershire, and Katherine Fray (12 May 1482), the daughter of Sir John Fray, Chief Baron of the Exchequer, by Agnes Danvers (d. June 1478), the daughter of Sir John Danvers (died c.1448), by whom he had six sons and six daughters:[10]
    • John Neville, 3rd Baron Latimer, who married firstly, Dorothy de Vere, daughter of Sir George Vere by Margaret Stafford, and sister and coheir of John de Vere, 14th Earl of Oxford; secondly, Elizabeth Musgrave; and thirdly, Catherine Parr, later Henry VIII's sixth Queen.[11]
    • William Neville (15 July 1497 – c.1545), author of The Castell of Pleasure, who married, before 1 April 1529, Elizabeth Greville, the daughter of Sir Giles Greville, by whom he had a son, Richard Neville of Penwyn and Wyke Sapie, Worcestershire, and two daughters, Mary and Susan.[12] After the death without male issue of John Neville, 4th Baron Latimer, William's son, Richard Neville (d. 27 May 1590), wrongfully assumed the title of Baron Latimer.[13]
    • Sir Thomas Neville of Piggotts Hall in Ardleigh, Essex, who married Mary Teye, the daughter and coheir of Sir Thomas Teye, by whom he had a son, Thomas.[14]
    • Marmaduke Neville of Marks Tey, who married Elizabeth Teye, the daughter and coheir of Sir Thomas Teye, by whom he had a son, Christopher, who died young, and a daughter, Alianore, who married Thomas Teye, esquire, of Layer de la Haye, Essex.[15]
    • George Neville, Archdeacon of Carlisle, (born 29 July 1509, buried 6 September 1567 at Well, North Yorkshire).[16]
    • Christopher Neville.[17]
    • Margaret Neville (born 9 March 1495), eldest daughter, who married, by papal dispensation dated 22 November 1505, Edward Willoughby (d. November 1517) of Alcester, Warwickshire, son of Robert Willoughby, 2nd Baron Willoughby de Broke (d. 10 or 11 November 1521), by his first wife, Elizabeth Beauchamp, by whom she had three daughters, Elizabeth (buried 15 November 1562), who married Sir Fulke Greville (d. 10 November 1559), Anne (d. 1528) and Blanche (d. before 1543), who married Francis Dawtrey.[18] Elizabeth Willoughby and Sir Fulke Greville (d. 10 November 1559) were the grandparents of the courtier and author, Fulke Greville, 1st Baron Brooke.[19]
    • Dorothy Neville, who married Sir John Dawney.[20]
    • Elizabeth Neville (born 28 April 1500), who married, before 1531, Sir Christopher Danby (c.1505 – 14 June 1571), of Farnley, North Yorkshire, only son of Sir Christopher Danby (d. 17 March 1518) and Margaret Scrope, daughter of Thomas Scrope, 5th Baron Scrope of Masham (d.1475). They had six sons, Sir Thomas Danby, Christopher Danby, John Danby, James Danby, Marmaduke Danby and William Danby, and eight daughters, Dorothy, who married Sir John Neville; Mary; Joan, who married Roger Meynell, esquire; Margaret, who married Christopher Hopton, esquire; Anne, who married Sir Walter Calverley; Elizabeth, who married Thomas Wentworth, esquire; Magdalen, who married Marmaduke Wyvill; and Margery, who married Christopher Mallory, esquire.[21] Anne Danby and Sir Walter Calverley were the grandparents of Walter Calverley (d.1605), whose murder of his children is dramatized in A Yorkshire Tragedy, attributed on the title page to William Shakespeare.[22] It seems likely that Anne's brother, William Danby, was the William Danby who served as coroner at the inquest into the death of Christopher Marlowe in 1593.
    • Katherine Neville.[23]
    • Susan Neville (1501 – c.1560), who married the rebel Richard Norton (d. 9 April 1585), esquire, the eldest son of John Norton (d. 1557) by Anne Radcliffe (d. before 1557).[24]

  • For one so well endowed and connected Christopher Danby was to live a relatively obscure life. Among the earlier references to him are those of his securing exemption from serving on juries or as sheriff in November 1532, and of his being released from the shrievalty when he was pricked in 1543 after nominations in 1538 and 1539; he did, however, serve as a juror in 1537, join the bench in 1538 and other commissions thereafter, and become sheriff in 1545. His knighthood presents a not dissimilar pattern, for it was only after being fined for not having been knighted that he was dubbed at the coronation of Anne Boleyn.3
  • Danby was momentarily involved in the Pilgrimage of Grace. On 15 Oct. 1536 the lords at Pontefract castle reported that he and his brother-in-law Sir John Neville I, 3rd Lord Latimer, had been taken by the rebels; both men managed to extricate themselves and Danby, in the 3rd Duke of Norfolk’s phrase, showed himself a true subject by acting as a grand juror in the trials of his less fortunate colleagues, including his cousin Lord Darcy. His own survival of the crisis was marked by his entry upon local administration and by his association with the defence of Berwick. Some years later he was listed among the few Yorkshire knights fit to serve against the Scots, and in 1544 he was charged with raising 50 or 100 men for the Scottish campaign.4
  • In 1538 Danby engaged in a scheme to exchange his lands in Kent and Suffolk, part of the Scrope inheritance, with the King and Cromwell for Yorkshire lands. In May of that year Ralph Neville, 4th Earl of Westmorland, asked Cromwell to ensure that, in view of the intended marriage between his daughter and Danby’s son Thomas, the new lands should descend to Thomas Danby as the old were to have done. In the event nothing seems to have come of the proposed exchange. It seems that Danby himself might have been ennobled, for Sir William Paget named him as one of the men whom Henry VIII chose on his deathbed to be ‘advanced’: if so, it would probably have been because of his connexion with Queen Catherine Parr, who had been the wife of the 3rd Lord Latimer. Nothing has been discovered about Danby’s attitude towards the religious changes of these years but in view of his Catholicism in later life he is likely to have been more at ease under Mary than under Edward VI. It was then that he had his only spell in Parliament as junior knight for Yorkshire with Sir William Babthorpe, although his part in the proceedings has left no trace.5
  • After 1558 Danby was again a dissentient. Listed among the justices who were accounted ‘no favourers of religion’ in 1564, in November of the following year he was in some trouble with both the council in the north and the Privy Council. His younger son Christopher was, in the words of (Sir) Thomas Gargrave, ‘one of the chief rebels for religion’ in 1569, as was a son-in-law, Sir John Neville of Liversedge, Yorkshire. Danby made his will on 27 Mar. 1568 and died on 14 June 1571. His son and heir Sir Thomas Danby was then over 40 years old.6
