    Elizabeth Beauchamp, who unless the Peerage be considered as one incident to the tenure of the Castle, must be considered as Baroness Bergavenny, or Beauchamp de Bergavenny, only daughter and heir of Richard by Isabel le Depsenser; b. at Hanley Castle, co. Worcester, 16 Sep 1415. She m. when very young, before 18 Oct 1424 (in 1426 her husband( as "Dominus de Bourgevenny") had summons to take, with the King himself, the order of Knighthood), Edward Nevill, 11th and youngest son of Ralph, 1st Earl of Westmorland, being 9th son by his 2nd wife, Joan Beaufort, Dowager Lady Ferrers de Wemme, the legitimated daughter of John "of Gaunt", Duke of Lancaster. In 1435 she was found heir to her grandmother [who had held the lands of Abergavenny and others in dower], when she and her husband had livery of the lands of her inheritance, but not of the castle and lands of Abergavenny, to which her right did not accrue until 11 June 1446, even on the most favourable interpretation to the Nevill family of the entail of 1395/6 (a), unless, indeed, that entail is, from some unknown cause, invalid, against her right as heir at law to her grandfather, the maker of the entail. She d. 18 June 1448, aged 32, and was buried at the Carmelites, Covenrty. [Complete Peerage I:27-29, (transcribed by Dave Utzinger)]

    (a) on 11 June 1446 the male lines of the Beauchamp family, who (under the entail 20 Feb 1395/6, of William Beauchamp, 1st Lord Bergavenny) were entitled to the castle and lands of Abergavenny, became extinct by the death spm. (without male issue) of Henry Beauchamp, Duke and Earl of Warwick.
