The parents listed for this individual are speculative and may not be based on sound genealogical research. Sources to prove or disprove this ancestry are needed. Please contact the Profile Manager or leave information on the bulletin board.

Flower (1871), asserts that she's the dau. of a Ralph Nevill of Liversedge, co. York.[1][2] but this contradicts the pedigree for Nevill of Liversedge.[3]

If she was a Neville, it's likely that she belonged to another branch ... and perhaps one that was closer in location to the Fentons of Fenton, co. Notts.[4]


She married Thomas Fenton of Fenton, co. Notts.[1][2]


  • other Nevill branches to consider: co. Lincs., Raby, co. Dur, etc.
  • Lewis, M. has an entry for Thos. Fenton (b. c. 1425) & wife Eleanor Neville (b. c. 1435), but it's not cited. The assertion is based on a family chart submitted at See Thos Fenton 178486 & Eleanor Neville 178487.
  • rejected matches for cross-ref.

  3. Ralph is not a given name that fits w/ the Nevill of Liversedge, co. York. branch. Liversedge went w/ John, Thos & Rbt.

I'm beginning to think she might descend from the Nevilles of Rolleston, co. Notts. ... who in turn, descend from Henry Neville, chamberlain to Henry II.

Sir Wm. Neville of Rolleston, co. Notts. & Pickhill, co. Leics. supposedly had a younger brother named, Ralph Neville. ... It's also the case that William's wife was from Yorkshire. She was >> Elizabeth Fencote of Fencote, co. York.

She's not in Dugdales' pedigree as dau of Sir Rbt. Nevill of Liversedge, co. York. Notes & Queries (1902), shows her as dau. of Ralph Nevill of Liversedge but the citation is unclear.
