There is speculation that the biological father was Edmund Beaufort 2nd Duke Somerset 1406-1455 (24) with whom Catherine of Valois Queen Consort England 1401-1437 (28) was rumoured to have had an affair.

Also interesting that his younger brother was named Jasper; a Persian name meaning 'Keeper of the Treasure.'
