Death of George Neville, Archbishop of York.  He was the fourth and youngest surviving son of Richard Neville, fifth earl of Salisbury (1400–1460), and Alice Montagu (c.1406–1462).  His eldest brother was Richard, earl of Warwick (“The Kingmaker”).  His interest in learning and association with learned men is thought to have been a strong influence on Richard, duke of Gloucester.
