From: royalancestry@msn.com (Douglas Richardson)

A few days ago, I posted a list of the known illegitimate children of Edward IV, King of Engl and (died 1483). Since posting, I've been contacted by two newsgroup members each of whom ha s added a new potential illegitimate child of King Edward IV. On my own, I've found addition al sources for two of the previously identified illegitimate children. I've also found a ref erence to yet another alleged illegitimate daughter in a late visitation who reputedly marrie d into the Musgrave family. I haven't included that child in the list below, as I haven't ye t confirmed that such a child and marriage occurred.

If anyone has anything to add to the information below or possesses any information on a poss ible illegitimate daughter who married a Musgrave, please post that information here on the n ewsgroup or contact me at my e-mail address below.

Many thanks to Peter Sutton and James Trabue for sharing their information with me.

List of Illegitimate Children of King Edward IV

Illegitimate child of Edward IV of England, by an unknown mistress, possibly Elizabeth Lucy:

i. ELIZABETH PLANTAGENET, married before 1477 THOMAS LUMLEY, Knt., son and heir apparent of George Lumley, Knt., Lord Lumley, by Elizabeth, daughter and heiress of Roger Thornton, Esq. They had four sons, Richard [Lord Lumley], John, George, and Roger, Esq., and three daughters, Anne (wife of Robert Ogle, 4th Lord Ogle), Sibyl (wife of William Hilton, Knt., de jure 9th Lord Hylton), and Elizabeth (wife of Robert Cresswell, Esq.). SIR THOMAS LUMLEY was living 27 Oct. 1495, and died prior to 1507. Descendants (not traced). [Note: Additional evidence of Elizabeth's parentage may be seen in the papal dispensation granted in 1489 for Elizabeth's son, Richard Lumley, to marry Anne Conyers, they being related in the [3rd and] 4th degree of kindred. A dispensation was needed for this marriage, as the two parties were both descended from Ralph Neville, K.G., 1st Earl of Westmorland, and his wife, Joan Beaufort (see Testamenta Eboracensia 3 (Surtees Soc., vol. 45) (1865): 355)]. Collins-Brydges, Peerage of England 3 (1812): 703 (citing MS. E. 6, f. 5, b. in Offic. Arm.). R.

Illegitimate child of Edward IV of England, by a mistress, Elizabeth Wayte:

i. ARTHUR PLANTAGENET (otherwise ARTHUR WAYTE), K.G., King’s Spear, Esquire of the Body, Sheriff of Hampshire, Vice-Admiral of England, Trier of Petitions in Parliament, Governor of Calais, Warden of the Cinque Ports, Privy Councillor, born say 1475 (presumed to be “my Lord the Bastard” mentioned in an Exchequer account dated 1477, first occurs as an adult in 1501). He married (1st) 12 Nov. 1511 ELIZABETH GREY, suo jure Baroness Lisle, widow of Edmund Dudley, Esq. (beheaded 18 Aug. 1510), and daughter and heiress of Edward Grey, Knt., Viscount Lisle, by his 1st wife, Elizabeth, daughter of John Talbot, Knt., Viscount Lisle. They had three daughters, Frances (wife of John Basset and Thomas Monke), Elizabeth (wife of Francis Jobson, Knt), and Bridget (wife of William Carden, Knt.). In 1514 he was captain of the Vice-Admiral's ship "Trinity Sovereign." He attended the King at the Field of Cloth of Gold in 1520. In consequence of his marriage, he was created 25 Apr. 1523 Viscount Lisle. In 1528 he purchased the manors of Segenworth, Chark, Lee, Sutton, West Stratton, etc., Hampshire from his cousin, John Wayte, Esq., of Titchfield. Arthur married (2nd) in 1529 Honor Grenville, widow of John Basset, Knt. (died 31 Jan. 1522/9), and daughter of Thomas Grenville, Knt., by his 1st wife, Isabel, daughter of Otes Gilbert, Knt. They had no issue. He was imprisoned in the Tower of London on suspicion of treason 19 May 1540. SIR ARTHUR PLANTAGENET, Viscount Lisle, died there 3 Mar. 1541/2. His widow, Honor, was buried at Logan, Cornwall 30 Apr. 1566. Modern descendants (not traced). J. Burke, General & Heraldic Dictionary of the Peerages ...

Alleged illegitimate children of Edward IV of England, by an unknown mistress (or mistresses), _____:

i. GRACE PLANTAGENET, said to be present in 1492 on the funeral barge of Queen Elizabeth Wydeville, widow of King Edward IV. C. Ross, Edward IV (1974), pg. 316, foonote 2 (citing BM Arundel MS. 26, ff. 29v-30v). C. Given-Wilson & A. Curteis, Royal Bastards of Medieval England (1984), pp. 158,161-174.

ii. _____ PLANTAGENET (daughter), married (as his 1st wife) JOHN AUDLEY (or TUCHET), younger son of John Audley (or Tuchet), Knt., 6th Lord Audley, Lord Treasurer of England, by Anne, daughter of Thomas Echingham, Knt. They had no issue. Collections for a History of Staffordshire n.s. 12 (1909): 229. MS. pedigree of Audley family dated 1618 on file at the William SaltCollection at the William Salt Library in Stafford, England. (These citations kindly provided by Peter Sutton).

iii. MARY PLANTAGENET, married after 1485 (as his 2nd wife) HENRY HARMAN, of Ellam (in Crayford), Kent, Clerk of the Crown to King Henry VII, son of Thomas and Elizabeth Harman. HENRY HARMAN left a will dated 1501, proved 1502 (P.C.C., 15 Blamyr), naming his deceased wife, Agnes, his living wife, Mary, and eleven children, George, William, Thomas, Roger, John, Henry, Robert, Elizabeth (wife of _____ Sparke), Alice, Beatrice, and Anne. The maternity of the children is uncertain, but at least the two youngest sons were by Henry Harman's last wife, Mary, as indicated by Henry's will. Misc. Gen. et Her. 4th ser. 2 (1908): 227-228 (Harman pedigree) (no identification of wives). H.S.P. 74 (1923): 61-62 (1574 Vis. Kent) (Harman pedigree: "Henry Harman Clarke of ye Crowne vnto H: 7 ... This man [Henry Harman] was H: 7 man to whome he gaue the clarkeship of the Crowne and with all gaue him the Crest belowe*, depick[t]ed one his armes which Crist was giuen him after hee had maried with E: 4 daughter") (The latter citation kindly supplied by James Trabue).

Below is a list of the illegitimate children of King Edward IV of England taken from variety of sources. The list includes no new names, but I've commented on additional evidence which appears to prove the parentage of Elizabeth, wife of Thomas Lumley. Gary Boyd Roberts's useful book, RD 500, indicates that there are American descendants of Elizabeth Lumley.

There seems to be confusion in surviving records between King Edward IV's mistresses, Dame Elizabeth Lucy and Elizabeth Wayte. I suspect the two women were separate and distinct individuals. King Edward IV is alleged to have had issue by Elizabeth Lucy prior to his marriage to Queen Elizabeth Wydeville in 1464. I presume that issue was King Edward IV's bastard daughter, Elizabeth Lumley, who married in or before 1477. Elizabeth Wayte's son, Arthur, on the other hand, doesn't occur in records as an adult until 1501 and didn't marry until 1511. This suggests a rather wide gap in ages between the two bastards, Elizabeth Lumley and Arthur Plantagenet. My best guess is that Elizabeth Lumley was born say 1460/2 and that Arthur Plantagenet was born say 1475.

If anyone has any corrections or additions to the list below, I'd appreciate it if they would post them here on the newsgroup.
