Constance of York, daughter of Edmund of Langley, K.G., Duke of York (5th son of King Edward III of England), by Isabel, younger daughter and co-heiress of Pedro the Cruel, King of Castile and León.
In 1414, Isabel was sole heiress to her brother, Richard le Despenser, by which she became suo jure Lady Burghersh.
Baroness Burgersh. Isabel married Richard Earl of Worcester, and then married his cousin, Richard Earl of Warwick. This causes some confusion.
She married her first husband in or before 1415 (their daughter was born September 16, 1415). He was created Earl of Worcester in February 1420/1 and killed at the Siege of Meaux in France in March 1421/2.
His widow, Isabel, Countess of Worcester, married his cousin, Richard Beauchamp, 13th Earl of Warwick, on November 26, 1423 at Hanley Castle, Worcestershire.
His widow, Isabel, Countess of Warwick, died December 26 (or 27), 1439 at Friars Minoresses, London and was buried in Tewkesbury Abbey. She left a will proved February 4, 1439/40.

I deleted 1439 as the "marriage end date" for her second marriage, which isn't really relevant as she didn't marry a 3rd time or have more kids & died the same year as her husband. It also displayed as "married November 26, 1423 to 1439 in Hanley Castle, Worcestershire"... Since 1439 isn't needed, I think "married November 26, 1423 in Hanley Castle, Worcestershire" looks better).
I replaced marriage date for 2nd marriage in the datafield with date (and place) given for the marriage by Richardson (see text). The date that had been there was "after December 28, 1422." Was that a contract date or dispensation date?
