According to information passed on to me by Ian Caldwell, in Dec 2001: "Anne Plantaganet, daughter of Lady Cicely Neville and Richard Duke of York and sister of King Edward IV and King Richard III, was born at Fotheringay Castle on 10th August 1439. She would have spent her childhood at Ludlow Castle in Shropshire. Her first husband was Henry Holland whom she married in about 1447. Unfortunately her husband was a supporter of the Lancastrian side in the Wars of the Roses and went in to exile on the Continent, so it was not surprising that they divorced and she married Thomas St.Leger (1419-1483) an esquire of the body of her brother, Edward IV, who had become her lover. She retained her first husband's estates. Anne died before her brother, the King, on 14th January 1476 soon after the birth of her daughter.
Sir Thomas was born at Ulcombe in Kent and rose against Richard Plantaganet, his late wife's brother, in 1483, trying to rescue Edward V from the clutches of his ambitious uncle (Richard III). Richard had him arrested and he was executed without trial, along with the other plotters, in November 1483 at Exeter, Devon. In the Rutland Chapel of St.George's Chapel, Windsor there is a silver gilt memorial plaque to Sir Thomas St.Leger and his wife Anne".
