    JOHN DE VERE, EARL OF OXFORD, 2nd but 1st surviving son and heir, was born 8 September 1442. He was allowed to succeed his father, and on 18 January 1463/4 he had licence to enter on all the castles, &c., which his father held. In May 1465 he was created K.B. at the Coronation of Elizabeth Wydeville, whereat he officiated both as Great Chamberlain of England (in the absence of Warwick, who held that office) and as Chamberlain to the Queen Consort. In November 1468 he was committed to the Tower, on suspicion of plotting with the Lancastrians against the Klng; but he received a general pardon 5 April 1469. He then joined the discontented Yorkists led by (his brother,in-law) the Kingmaker and the Duke-of Clarence, and like them he fled overseas in the following year. They returned in September and restored Henry VL He was appointed Constable of England, and as such, on 15 October, he tried and condemned the Earl of Worcester, who had condemned his father and brother. In March 1470/1 he commanded in Norfolk in such force that Edward IV was unable to land therc. At the battle of Barnet he commanded the left wing. He fled to Scotland, thence to France, where he collected ships and took to privateering. On 28 May 1473 he made an unsuccessful landing in Essex. On 30 September he seized St. Michael's Mount, Cornwall, where he was besieged for some months, but was compelled to surrender. He was imprisoned in the castle of Hammes, near Calais, and was attainted early in 1475. In 1485 he escaped from Hammes, joined the Earl of Richmond at Angers, and commanded the archers at Bosworth. His attainder was repealed, and he was appointed Lord High Admiral of England, Ireland and Aquitaine, High Steward of the Duchy of Lancaster south of Trent, and Constable of the Tower of London and of Rising Castle, and received many other grants. P.C. and K.G. He was recognised as Hereditary Lord Great Chamberlain of England, and officiated as such at the Coronations of Henry VII and Elizabeth of York, at both of which he was also one of the Commissioners for executing the office of Lord High Steward. In September 1486 he was godfather to Prince Arthur. He led the van at the battle of Stoke in 1487, and in Picardy in 1492. In 1496 he was one of the guarantors of the treaty with Burgundy. In June 1497 he was one of the commanders against the Cornish rebels at Blackheath. He was appointed Lord High Steward of England for the trial of the Earl of Warwick, November 1499. On the accession of Henry VIII he continued in high favour, and he officiated as Lord Great Chamberlain of England at his Coronation.

    He married, 1stly, Margaret, sister of Richard (NEVILLE), EARL OF WARWICK AND SALISBURY, and daughter of Richard (NEVILLE), EARL OF SALISBURY, by Alice, daughter of Thomas (MONTAGU), 4th EARL OF SALISBURY. She died after 20 November 1506, and was buried at Colne Priory. He married, 2ndly, between 28 November 1508 and 10 April 1509, Elizabeth, widow of William, 2nd VISCOUNT BEAUMONT, and daughter and coheir of Sir Richard SCROPE (2nd son of Henry, 4th LORD SCROPE of Bolton), by Eleanor, daughter of Norman WASHBOURNE.
