George Nevill, 5th Baron Bergavenny

George Nevill, 5th Baron Bergavenny

George Nevill, 5th and "de jure" 3rd Baron Bergavenny KG, PC (c. 1469 – 28 September 1535) held the office of Lord Warden of the Cinque Ports.

He was born in Abergavenny, Monmouthshire, Wales, the son of George Nevill, 4th Baron Bergavenny and Margaret Fenne.

He was an elder brother of Sir Edward Nevill who was executed in 1540 on order of King Henry VIII, charged with "devising to maintain, promote, and advance one Reginald Pole, late Dean of Exeter, enemy of the King, beyond the sea, and to deprive the King". (Reginald Pole was a Catholic exile and a second cousin once removed of Nevill).

They had two sisters, Jane and Elizabeth. Jane herself was executed in 1539 along with her husband Henry Pole, 1st Baron Montagu, as he was the elder brother of Reginald Pole.

The mother of George and Edward Nevill was Margaret Fenne, who was born in about 1444 at Sculton Burdeleys in Norfolk, England. She was the second of the three wives of the 4th Lord Bergavenny, and is recorded as having died on September 28, 1485.

Sir George Nevill was buried before January 24, 1536 in Birling, Kent, England.

Lord Bergavenny is thought to have been married four times, to: Lady Mary Brooke of Cobham; Mary Stafford, daughter of Edward Stafford, 3rd Duke of Buckingham; Joan FitzAlan and Margaret Brent.

He was succeeded by his son Henry Nevill, 6th Baron Bergavenny (by wife Mary Stafford).
