From Wikipedia:

The title Baron FitzHugh of Ravensworth was created in the Peerage of England in 1321, for Henry FitzHugh. The title passed through the male line until the death of the seventh baron in 1513 when it became abeyant between his great-aunts Alice, Lady Fiennes and Elizabeth, Lady Parr, and their descendants.

Barons FitzHugh (1321)

  • Henry FitzHugh, 1st Baron FitzHugh (d. 1356)
  • Hugh FitzHugh, 2nd Baron FitzHugh (d. 1386)
    • Married Joan Scrope, daughter of Henry, 1st Baron Scrope of Masham. Their daughter Eleanor FitzHugh married Sir Thomas Tunstall, a knight, and the feudal lord of Thurland Castle. Eleanor's daughter Alice Tunstall married Sir Thomas Parr of Kendal (ca. 1411-1464), a knight, and was the mother of William Parr, 1st Baron Parr of Kendal. Eleanor's son Thomas Tunstall was the grandfather of Cuthbert Tunstall.
  • Henry FitzHugh, 3rd Baron FitzHugh (c.1358–1425)
    • A Knight of the Garter. Served in the French wars with Henry V. Held an important position at the court of Henry IV; was made Constable of England at the coronation of Henry V, and seems to have been on intimate terms with both these monarchs. Was in charge of Princess Philippa of England, daughter of Henry IV, during her journey to Lund, Sweden in 1406 to be married to King Eric XIII. Married Elizabeth Grey, granddaughter of the 2nd Baron Grey of Rotherfield, one of the original Knights of the Garter instituted at its foundation in 1344. They had thirteen children, including Robert FitzHugh and Eleanor FitzHugh, wife of Philip Darcy, 6th Baron Darcy de Knayth.
  • William FitzHugh, 4th Baron FitzHugh (c.1399–1452)
    • Married Margery Willoughby, daughter of William, 5th Baron Willoughby de Eresby and Lucy le Strange. Had seven daughters and one son.
  • Henry FitzHugh, 5th Baron FitzHugh (c.1429–1472)
    • Married Lady Alice Neville. They had five sons and six daughters, including Alice, Lady Fiennes and Elizabeth, Lady Parr. Elizabeth married William Parr, 1st Baron Parr of Kendal and then Nicholas Vaux, 1st Baron Vaux of Harrowden. From her first marriage, Elizabeth was the mother of Sir Thomas Parr and paternal grandmother of Queen consort and last wife of Henry VIII, Catherine Parr.[3]
  • Richard FitzHugh, 6th Baron FitzHugh (c.1458–1487)
  • George FitzHugh, 7th Baron FitzHugh (c.1487–1513)

______________________________

  • Francis Lovell, 9th Baron Lovell, 6th Baron Holand, later 1st Viscount Lovell (1454 - after 1488) was an English nobleman. He probably knew the later King Richard III of England from a young age, and was to become his lifelong friend and staunch ally.
  • Francis was the son of John Lovell, 8th Baron Lovell and Joan Beaumont, daughter of John Beaumont, 1st Viscount Beaumont. When his father died, the nine-year old Francis inherited the titles of Baron Lovell and Baron Holand. He became a ward of Edward IV of England, who gave him into the charge of Richard Neville, 16th Earl of Warwick,[1] where Edward's youngest brother Richard, Duke of Gloucester also spent some time. It was there that the two young men first formed their close association.[2]
  • In 1466, he married Anne FitzHugh, daughter of Henry FitzHugh, 5th Baron FitzHugh. Fitz Hugh had married the Earl of Warwick's sister Alice Neville and supported Warwick's rebellion against Edward IV in 1470. As the pardon issued to Henry, Lord Fitzhugh includes Francis Lovell it can be assumed that Francis lived with his father-in-law at this time.[3] .....
