  • Notes 
    • Younger son of Sir Ralph de Neville and Alice de Audley. King's clerk, Archbishop of York.

      In 1348 he was granted a license for one year of celebration of mass in an oratory in the hostel in which he and his brother, Thomas, were residing at Oxford. He obtained an M.A. degree before 1357, was appointed Rector of Aysgarth Yorkshire before 1351, became Rector of Kirkby Misperon, Yorkshire in 1357, Master of the Hospital of St Thomas the Matyr in Northumberland before 1361, Archdeacon of Cornwall in 1361, Canon of York and prebendary of Bole in 1361, Canon and prebendary of Darlington, Durham in 1362, Canon of Howden, Yorkshire and prebendary of Skelton in 1362, Archdeacon of Durham before Jan 1371, and Archbishop of York in 1374. In 1386 he was included as a member of the commission appointed to regulate the affairs of the kingdom and the royal household.

      Alexander became the bitter opponent of Thomas, Duke of Gloucester. In 1387 he was appealed of high treason in Parliament, found guilty, and all his properties were forfeited. He took refuge in Brabant, where he administered as a parish priest in Louvain until his death. [2]
