[Burke's] In 1347, Conisbrough Castle passed to Edmund Langley, son of Edward III and later Duke of York, and when this family acceded to the throne in 1461 it became a royal castle. Langley's tenure of the castle lasted until 1402, and the majority of the improvements to the accommodation of the inner ward most probably date to his time. [Conisbrough Castle, p. 1] Son of Edward III, King of England, and Phillippa of Hainault. [WFT Vol 1 Ped 1737] 4th surviving son of Edward III; Duke of York; an ineffectual ditherer of little ability, whose achievements were few, for he lacked the ambition and energy of his brothers. His remains, exhumed during the reign of Queen Victoria, showed him to have been a stocky man of about 5'8" tall. Although his contemporaries described him as handsome, he had an abnormally sloping forehead and a prominent, thrusting jaw. On his body there was evidence of several wounds, none of them in the back, which suggests that if Edmund was somewhat lacking in brain power, he was no coward in the field. His long military career began when he was 18, when he fought the French, but in the years that followed, despite the odd moment of glory, he was dogged by one misfortune after another and was rarely given an independent command. The great passion in his life was hawking, which he preferred to any political duty. The chronicler John Hardyng described Edmund as a cheerful and well-meaning man who 'lived without wrong', but whose abilities did not match the role his birth dicatated. Staunchly loyal to his brother, Gaunt. In 1372 he m. Isabella, younger sister of Gaunt's 2nd wife Constance. [Wars of the Roses, p. 28] Son of Edward III and Phillipa; m. Isabel and Joan de Holand; father of Margaret Holand by Joan.

[Castle Rising, p. 22] Edmund, 4th son of King Edward III, was created by that monarch 13 Nov 1361 Earl of Cambridge; and by King Richard II, Duke of York. He had issue: 1. Edward, 2nd Duke of York/Earl of Rutland/Duke of Albemarle 2.
