- SEVERAL OTHER REFERENCES LIST ELIZABETH WILLOUGHBY AS THE DAU. OF EDWARD WILLOUGHBY & MARGARET NEVILLE
- Elizabeth Willoughby, 3rd Baroness Willoughby de Broke, de jure 11th Baroness Latimer (c.1512 – c. 15 November 1562) was an English noblewoman and wife of Sir Fulke Greville.
- Elizabeth Willoughby was the eldest daughter of Edward Willoughby of Alcester, Warwickshire, and Powick, and Dorothy Anne Grey, daughter of Thomas Grey, 1st Marquis of Dorset (eldest son of Elizabeth Wydeville, Queen of England) and Cecily Bonville. Elizabeth's father, Edward Willoughby, died in November 1517, leaving Elizabeth still a minor. Her wardship was acquired in 1522 by Sir Edward Greville of Milcote, Warwickshire. At her grandfather's death on 11 November 1521, the baronies of Willoughby de Broke and Latimer fell into abeyance despite his three granddaughters; all daughters of his son Edward; Elizabeth, Anne and Blanche. The barony was settled on Elizabeth after their deaths s.p..
- Shortly before 11 April 1526 Sir Edward Greville married his ward Elizabeth to his second son, Sir Fulke Greville (bef. 1505–10 November 1559) of Beauchamps Court, Alcester. He did so because Elizabeth preferred Fulk over his older brother. A manuscript dated 1644 entitled The Genealogie, Life and Death of Robert, Lord Brooke, then in the possession of the Earl of Warwick, describes their courtship:
- “ In the days of Henry VIII, I read of Sir Edward Greville, of Milcote, who had the wardenship of Elizabeth, one of the daus. of the Lord Brooke's son. The knight made a motion to his ward to be married to John, his eldest son, but she refused, saying that she did like better of Fulke, his 2nd son. He told her that he had no estate of land to maintain her; and that he was in the King's service of warre beyond the seas, and therefore his return was very doubtful. Shee replied and said, that shee had an estate sufficient both for him and herself, and that she would pray for his safety and wait for his coming. Upon his return home, for the worthy services he had performed, he was by King Henry honoured with a knighthood; and then married Elizabeth, the dau. of the Lord Brooke's son. ”
- In 1542/3 Elizabeth's husband, Fulke Greville, was knighted by Henry VIII for military service to the crown. He was High Sheriff of Warwickshire in 1543 and a member of Parliament from 1547. He further distinguished himself along with forty men in the suppression of the Pilgrimage of Grace and served in campaigns in 1544 against France. He built his wife and family a new house at Beauchamp's Court with stone reclaimed from Alcester Priory. Fulk died on 10 Nov 1559. Elizabeth died 9 November 1562 and was buried beside her husband with a monumental inscription.

According to Melissa Thompson Alexander's page on Catherine Greville Reed:
Catherine Greville's information comes from the book "The Darnall,Darnall Family with Allied Families".
The death date was determined from a passage about the Church of St. Giles in Bredon published by British History Online (referenced by Jorge Castell):
The church of ST. GILES consists of a chancel 45½ ft. by 20½ ft., nave 60½ ft. by 23 ft., a central tower 13½ ft. square between them, a north aisle 33 ft. by 10½ ft., south aisle 32½ ft. by 18½ ft. and a north porch. These measurements are all internal.
The west pair of lancet windows is blocked by the Reed monument.
Plan of Bredon Church
At the west end of the south aisle of the nave is a handsome alabaster and black marble monument of great size to Giles Reed and Catherine (Greville) his wife, both of whom died in 1611. It has lifesized recumbent effigies on a panelled sarcophagus. The arched canopy is carried on Corinthian columns, and bears in the spandrels the arms of Reed quartering Or three crossbows proper, and the shield of Greville, quartered with Arderne, Ufford and Beauchamp of Powick. Above the cornice is a central arched panel with Reed's quartered coat, surmounted by a black eagle displayed, which is Reed's crest, between two obelisks. On either side of the main arch under which the effigies lie are small side canopies with Ionic capitals carrying ball obelisks, and beneath them are the kneeling figures of eight children, with an inscription recording that John Reed set up the tomb to his parents and that he lies in the south wall near by.
