    EARLDOM OF PEMBROKE (XVI, 1) 1452? to 1461 and 1485 to 1495


    JASPER TUDOR, called OF HATFIELD, was born about 1430, at Hatfield, Herts, being, 2nd son of Sir Owen TUDOR, 1495, by Katharine, QUEEN DOWAGER OF ENGLAND, daughter of CHARLES VI, KING OF FRANCE. Being thus uterine brother to King Henry VI, he was knighted by him 25 December 1449, and was, on 23 November 1452, created EARL OF PEMBROKE, with place and precedency in Parliament and elsewhere immediately below his elder brother, Edmond, Earl of Richmond (created the same day), who had place and precedency immediately after all Dukes. Elected K.G. before 23 April 1459. For his energetic support of the House of Lancaster he was attainted, 4 November 1461. He took an active part in the temporary restoration (9 October 1470 to 14 April 1471) of Henry VI, when he was restored to his honours, but was again attainted in 1471, having, after the battle of Barnet (14 April 1471), fled into Brittany. On the accession of his nephew, Henry VII, to the Crown, he was, on 27 October 1485, created DUKE OF BEDFORD, and on 12 December following was again restored to the Earldom of Pembroke by Parliament. P.C., 1485. High Steward of Oxford University 1485-92. LORD DEPUTY OF IRELAND, 1486-94. One of the commissioners for the High Steward at the Coronation of the Queen Consort, and Bearer of her Crown there at,10 November 1487.

    He married, before 7 November 1485, Katharine, widow of Henry (STAFFORD), DUKE OF BUCKINGHAM, 6th daughter and coheir of Richard (WIDVILLE), EARL RIVERS, by Jacqueline, daughter of Pierre DE LUXEMBOURG, COUNT OF ST POL, and sister of Elizabeth, Queen Consort of Edward IV. He died s.p. legit., 21 December 1495, aged about 65, and was buried in the Abbey of Keynsham, when all his honours became extinct. His widow, who was aged above 34 on 4 August 1492, married (as his 1st wife) Sir Richard WINGFIELD, K.G., of Kimbolton Castle, Hunts, who died 22 July 1525, at Toledo, in Spain. [Complete Peerage II:73, (transcribed by Dave Utzinger)]

    NOTE: The estimated birth date of 1430, given above (and also by CP X:397 in the Pembroke article) may be misleading. His elder brother Edmund Earl of Richmond (father of Henry VII) was also born c1430, but in Hadham (not the same town, so they couldn't very well be twins). I am making Jasper "aft. 1430" to indicate he was younger. It is conceivable, though not very, that they were both born the same year.
