Although he was the 3rd son (and tenth child) of Ralph Neville, 1st Earl of Westmorland , Richard Neville was the first child to be born to Ralph's second wife, Joan Beaufort, Countess of Westmoreland. The Neville lands were primarily in Durham and Yorkshire , but both Richard II and Henry IV found the family useful to counterbalance the strength of the Percies on the Scottish Borders - hence Earl Ralph's title, granted in 1397, and his appointment as Warden of the West March in 1403. Ralph's marriage to Joan Beaufort, at a time when the distinction between royalty and nobility was becoming more important can be seen as another reward, for as a granddaughter of Edward III she was a member of the royal family.
The children of Earl Ralph's first wife had made good marriages to local nobility, but his Beaufort children married into much greater families. Three of Richard's sisters married dukes (the youngest Cecily , marrying Richard, Duke of York), and Richard himself married Alice Montacute, daughter and heiress of the Earl of Salisbury.
Marriage and children:
With Alice Montague he fathered ten children:
Cecily Neville , 1424 - 1450, who married Henry de Beauchamp, 1st Duke of Warwick
Richard Neville, 16th Earl of Warwick 1428 - 1471
John Neville, 1st Marquess of Montagu 1431 - 1471
George Neville 1432 - 1476, who became Archbishop of York and Chancellor of England
Joan Neville, 1434 - 1462, who married William FitzAlan, 16th Earl of Arundel
Katherine Neville, 1442 - 1503, who married first William Bonville, 6th Baron Harington & second William Hastings, 1st Baron Hastings
Thomas Neville, 1443 - 1460, who was knighted in 1449 and died at the Battle of Wakefield
Eleanor Neville, 1447 - 1482, who married Thomas Stanley, 1st Earl of Derby
Alice Neville, c. 1450 - 1503, who married Henry FitzHugh, 6th Lord FitzHugh. They were parents of Elizabeth Fitzhugh, grandparents of Sir Thomas Parr of Kendal & great-grandparents of Katherine Parr. Katherine was the sixth Queen consort of Henry VIII of England.
Margaret Neville, c 1450 - 1506, who married John de Vere, 13th Earl of Oxford

In 1420 or earlier, he succeeded his eldest half-brother, John Neville, as warden of the west march of Scotland, an office which frequently devolved upon the Nevilles. Six months after his father-in-law’s death (3 May 1429) Neville’s claim to the title of Earl of Salisbury in right of his wife was approved by the judges and provisionally confirmed by the peers in great council until the king came of age. On 4 May 1442 Henry VI confirmed his tenure of the dignity for his life
