The Woodville's first came to prominence during the Hundred Years War. Richard Woodville was chamberlain to the John Duke of Bedford, Regent of the English controlled areas of France during which time he prosecuted Joan of Arc. John Duke of Bedford married the eighteen year old Jacquetta of Luxembourg; no issue. On the Duke of Bedford's death Richard Woodville and Jacquetta, now Dowager Duchess of Bedford, married in secret. Richard and Jacquetta went on to have fourteen children together.

Richard and Jacquetta's eldest child Elizabeth Woodville married John Grey of Groby. They had two children: Thomas and Richard. Thomas, subsequently Marquess of Dorset, escaped to France and became a supporter of Henry VII. His descendants include Queen Jane, the nine day queen.

John Grey of Groby was killed at the Second Battle of St Albans in 1461. His widow Elizabeth married secondly King Edward IV. Elizabeth's thirteen siblings were married to the highest nobility: Anne married Viscount William Bourchier, Mary married William Herbert, Earl of Pembroke, Margaret married Thomas Fitzalan, Earl Arundel, Catherine married Henry Stafford, Duke Buckingham. John, aged twenty, married Katherine Neville, aged sixty five, referred to by some as a 'diabolical marriage'.

Elizabeth's father Richard and brother John were executed after the Lancastrian victory at the Battle of Edgeley Moor.

Elizabeth's half-brother Richard and full-brother Anthony were beheaded at Pontefract having been captured at Northampton while escorting Elizabeth's son Edward from Ludlow to be crowned at Westminster.

Edward and Elizabeth's two sons, Edward and Richard, disappeared whilst under the protection of Richard III; The Princes in the Tower.

Edward and Elizabeth's eldest daughter Elizabeth married Henry VII and is, therefore, ancestor of all subsequent royalty in England.
