"Edward Nevill, de facto 3rd (de jure 1st) Baron Bergavenny (bef. 1414 \endash 18 October 1476) was an English pee.
He was the son of Ralph de Neville, 1st Earl of Westmorland and Joan Beaufort, Countess of Westmorland, daughter of John of Gaunt and Katherine de Roet (better known as Katherine Swynford. Nevill was knighted sometime after 1426.
In 1436 he married Lady Elizabeth de Beauchamp (d. 18 June 1448), daughter of Richard de Beauchamp, 1st Earl of Worcester and the former Lady Isabel le Despenser, who later succeeded as de jure 3rd Baroness Bergavenny, and they had the following children:
Richard Nevill (bef. 1439 \endash bef. 1476)
Sir George Nevill (c.1440\endash 1492), later 4th and 2nd Baron Bergavenny
Alice Nevill, married Sir Thomas Grey
Catherine Nevill (b.c.1444), married John Iwardby
Bergavenny, as he was now styled, was a justice of the peace for Durham in 1438.
Shortly after his first wife's death, in the summer or fall of 1448, he married Katherine Howard, daughter of Robert Howard and sister of the 1st Duke of Norfolk, and they had the following children:
Catherine Nevill (b. c. 1452/bef. 1473), married Robert Tanfield (b. 1461), son of Robert Tanfield and Elizabeth Brooke, daughter of Edward Brooke, 6th Baron Cobham and Elizabeth Touchet, born c. 1433, and had issue
Margaret Nevill (b.bef. 1476-1506), married John Brooke, 7th Baron Cobham
Anne Nevill (b.bef 1476-1480/81)
He was a captain in the embattled Duchy of Normandy in 1449. His eldest son Richard was one of the hostages given to the French when the English surrendered the city of Rouen in that year.
After the death of his first wife, he was summoned to Parliament in 1450 as "Edwardo Nevyll de Bergavenny", by which he is held to have become Baron Bergavenny. At the time, however, this was considered to be a summons by right of his wife, and so he was considered the 3rd, rather than the 1st, Baron.
In 1454, he was appointed to the Privy Council assembled by the Duke of York as Lord Protector, along with his more prominent Nevill kinsmen. He was a commissioner of array in Kent in 1461, and was a captain in Edward IV's army in the North the following year. He was again a commissioner of array in 1470, remaining loyal to Edward IV, unlike his nephew, the Earl of Warwick"
