Buried: Wingfield Church, Suffolk, England

Notes: 2nd Duke of Suffolk, 2nd Marquess of Suffolk, 5th Earl of Suffolk. Knight of the Garter. Known as "the Trimming Duke". He was married to Lady Margaret Beaufort on 7 Feb 1450, though the Papal Dispensation to marry was not signed until 18 Aug 1450. This marriage was annulled by Henry VI in Feb 1453. Richard, Duke of York had been a bitter enemy of John's father (executed in 1450), but John supported the House of York in the Wars of the Roses. Sometime before Feb 1458, John married Elizabeth, the second surviving daughter of Richard of York and Cecily Neville. She was the sister of Edward IV and Richard III. John was thus brother-in-law of two Kings of England.

The Dukedom of Suffolk had been forfeited when John's father was executed. The title was restored by Edward IV, and John was created Duke of Suffolk by Letters Patent on 23 Mar 1463. He was Constable of Wallingford Castle and held the Honour of Wallingford. In 1472 he was made a Knight of the Garter and appointed High Steward of Oxford University. He was also sometime Lord Lieutenant of Ireland.

He submitted to Henry VII after Bosworth Field. He served Henry loyally, even though three of his sons later rebelled.

Notes: During the last year of the reign of King Richard III, he was designated heir to the throne, being Richard's closest adult male relative in the Yorkist line. After Richard's defeat at the Battle of Bosworth in 1485, Lincoln was reconciled with the new king, Henry VII, but soon became impatient for power and tried to achieve it by supporting the claims of the boy pretender, Lambert Simnel. Lincoln was killed at the Battle of Stoke in 1487, at which the rebel army was defeated.
