m1. Elizabeth Beauchamp (b 16.09.1415, d 18.06.1448, dau of Richard Beauchamp, 2nd Lord of Abergavenny, Earl of Worcester)
Elizabeth's mother was heiress of the barony Le Despenser. Some sources identify Edward as 1st Lord Bergavenny so that they disagree with the numberings below.
1. Richard Nevill (dvpsp)

  ii. Jane Neville (d before 26.10.1538)
  The 'traditional view', supported by TCP (Montagu), is that the wife of Lord Montagu was a generation earlier (see below), whilst TCP (Bridgwater) identifies Elizabeth as the only child of her father's 1st marriage. However, there are some respected genealogists (see here and here for examples, the former identifying research by Douglas Richardson as the reason) who think that the Jane who married Henry Pole, Lord Montagu, was of this generation. For a while we followed the traditional view but have since been persuaded to show here the Jane who married ...
