Lady Elizabeth Fitzalan

Birth: 1371
West Sussex, England
Death: Jul. 8, 1425
North Yorkshire, England

Elizabeth Fitzalan Duchess of Norfolk, was the daughter of Richard Fitz-Alan, Earl of Arundel, and Elizabeth de Bohun. Married Sir William Montague; Thomas Mowbry, Duke of Norfolk; Sir Robert Goushill; and Sir Gerald Usflete. Elizabeth Fitz-Alan was descended from King Edward I through her mother's ancestry, and Edmund Plantagenet through her father's line. She is buried in a tomb in Hoveringham Church in Nottinghamshire next to her third husband Sir Robert Goushill who died at the Battle of Shrewsbury in 1403. Robert Goushill was knighted by King Henry IV the day of the battle. Wounded, he was murdered by his servant on the Shrewsbury battlefield for his valuables. The servant was later identified and hung for his crime. Many Americans including Franklin D. Roosevelt can trace Plantagenet ancestry through Elizabeth Fitz-Alan's daughters Joan and Elizabeth Goushill.
