The marriage you may be talking about.John de la Pole on Feb 7 1450 as a

small child Married Lady Margaret Beaufort,The Pope gave dispensation to marrie

Aug 18 1450,but that marriage was annulled inFeb 1453.Lady Margaret was 7 yrs

old.As unlikely as it sounds marriages like this were condoned at the time as long

as both families agreed.So there are no children recorded.As far as Grace de la

Pole,i would need Dates for her.Could be the product of a descendant.

She was not the daughter of John de La Pole, 2nd Duke of suffolk, by either of his wives. His first was Margaret Beaufort, and it was never consummated and so was anulled. He then married  Elizabeth of York,, sister to Edward IV and Richard III. Their children are listed as:

  • John de la Pole, 1st Earl of Lincoln (c. 1462-16 June 1487). He was designated heir to his maternal uncle Richard III. Married to Lady Margaret FitzAlan and had a son Edward de la Pole, who died young. Rebelled against Henry VII and was killed at the Battle of Stoke Field.
  • Geoffrey de la Pole (b. 1464). Died young.
  • Edward de la Pole (1466–1485). Archdeacon of Richmond.
  • Elizabeth de la Pole (c. 1468-1489). Married to Henry Lovel, 8th Baron Morley (1466–1489), without issue.
  • Edmund de la Pole, 3rd Duke of Suffolk (1471-30 April 1513). Yorkist pretender in succession to his brother John. Beheaded by order ofHenry VIII.
  • Dorothy de la Pole (b. 1472). Died young.
  • Humphrey de la Pole (1474–1513). In Holy Orders.
  • Anne de la Pole (1476–1495). Nun.
  • Catherine de la Pole (c. 1477-1513). Married to William Stourton, 5th Baron Stourton, without issue.
  • Sir William de la Pole, knight, of Wingfield Castle (1478–1539). William was kept in the Tower of London, his date of death is generally regarded as being during late 1539, either October or November. Married Katherine Stourton, no issue.
  • Richard de la Pole (1480-24 February 1525). Yorkist pretender in succession to Edmund. Killed at the Battle of Pavia.


the family was originally from the north of England, and it appears that your Grace came from Leeds in Yorkshire (their heartland). She is not mentioned on the tree of the main line that rose to almost rule England.
