See also:English soldier, was the third son of
See also:Richard Neville,
See also:earl of
See also:Salisbury, and a
See also:brother of Richard Neville, earl of
See also:Warwick, the "
See also:king-maker." At the
See also:battle of Blore Heath in 1459
See also:John Neville was taken prisoner by the Lancastrians, although the Yorkists under his
See also:father had won the victory; he was among those who were attainted in the parliament of
See also:Coventry, and he was not released until 146o when his own party had gained the upper
See also:hand . Just afterwards he was created
See also:Montagu and was made
See also:chamberlain of the royal
See also:household . He was not
See also:present at the battle of Wakefield, when his father was taken prisoner, but he was again a
See also:captive after the second battle of St Albans in 1461 . He was speedily released by
See also:Edward IV., whom he served in the
See also:north of England, being rewarded with lands and honours . In 1463 he became
See also:warden of the east
See also:marches towards Scotland, and he was responsible for the Yorkist victories at Hedgeley
See also:Moor and at
See also:Hexham in
See also:April and May 1464; after the latter battle he secured the execution of
See also:Beaufort, duke of
See also:Somerset, and other captives of high station . In this
See also:year (1464) he was created earl of
See also:Northumberland, the Percies being now crushed, and their
See also:head, Henry Percy, being in prison . Northumberland did not at first join his brother Warwick and the other Nevilles when they revolted against Edward IV., but neither did he help the king . Edward, doubt-less suspecting him, restored the earldom of Northumberland and its vast estates to Henry Percy, while John Neville's only recompense was the barren title of
See also:marquess of Montagu . At Pontefract in 1470 he and his men declared for Henry VI., a proceeding which compelled Edward IV. to fly from England, and under the restored king he regained his position as warden, but not the earldom of Northumberland . He did not attempt to resist Edward IV. when this king landed in
See also:Yorkshire in
See also:March 1471, but he fought under Warwick at
See also:Barnet, where he was slain on the r4th of April 1471 . His son
See also:George (d . 1483) was betrothed to
See also:Elizabeth, daughter of Edward IV., and was created duke of
See also:Bedford in 147o, but the
See also:marriage did not take place and he was deprived of his dukedom in 1477 .
