      John Neville, born at Raby Castle, Durham, between 1337 and 1340, was the eldest son of Ralph Neville, 2nd Baron Neville de Raby, and Alice Audley. He had five brothers, including Alexander Neville, Archbishop of York, and four sisters.[1]

      Cokayne notes that Neville's public career was as active as his father's had been. He fought against the Scots at the Battle of Neville's Cross <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battle_of_Neville%27s_Cross > on 17 October 1346 as a captain under his father, was knighted about 1360 after a skirmish near Paris while serving under Sir Walter Manny <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Walter_de_Manny,_1st_Baron_Manny >, and fought in Aquitaine <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Duchy_of_Aquitaine > in 1366, and again in 1373-4.

      At his father's death on 5 August 1367 he succeeded to the title, and had livery of his lands in England and Scotland in October of that year.

      From 1367 on he had numerous commissions issued to him, and in 1368 served as joint ambassador to France.[2] He was made a Knight of the Garter <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Knight_of_the_Garter > in 1369.[3]

      In July 1370 he was Admiral of the North, and in November of that year a joint commissioner to treat with Genoa . He was Steward of the King's Household in 1372, and in July of that year was part of an expedition to Brittany <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brittany >. For the next several years he served in Scotland and the Scottish Marches <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scottish_Marches >. In 1378 he had licence to fortify Raby Castle, and in June of the same year was in Gascony, where he was appointed Keeper of Fronsac Castle and Seneschal of Gascony <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gascony >.

      He spent several years in Gascony, and was among the forces which raised the siege of Mortaigne in 1381. On his return to England he was again appointed Warden of the Marches. In May 1383 and March 1387 he was a joint commissioner to treat of peace with Scotland, and in July 1385 was to accompany the King <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Richard_II_of_England > to Scotland.[4]

      Neville died at Newcastle upon Tyne <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Newcastle_upon_Tyne > on 17 October 1388. In his will he requested burial in Durham Cathedral <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Durham_Cathedral > by his first wife, Maud. He was succeeded by his eldest son, Ralph Neville, 1st Earl of Westmorland <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ralph_Neville,_1st_Earl_of_Westmorland >.[5]
