Savage, John (b. , d. 1492)

Note: John Savage was made a knight at the coronation of Queen Elizabeth Woodville (No. XXX) on May 26 1465. As a knight of the body, he was one of those chosen to bear the body of King Edward IV into Westminster Abbey on Apr 17 1483 for his funeral.

He served as Mayor of Chester in 1484 and 1485. King Richard III treated him well and bestowed many preferments on him, but he was in contact with Henry Tudor, Earl of Richmond, and commanded Richmond's left wing at the Battle of Bosworth, where Richmond won the throne as King Henry VII. For his services at Bosworth, Savage was given numerous lands in several counties the following year and still more in 1488. On November 17th of that year, he was elected a member of the Garter.

In October, 1492, he was at the siege of Boulogne and was taken by the enemy while on reconnaissance. Refusing to surrender, he was killed.

Savage, Thomas (b. , d. 3 SEP 1507)
Note: Thomas Savage, his father's second son, attended Cambridge where he earned an LL.D. degree. He early became a favorite of King Henry VII and was spoken of as the King's Chaplain as early as Sep 21 1485, only a month after the Battle of Bosworth had put Henry on the throne.

He undertook several diplomatic missions for the king, including one to Spain and Portugal which resulted in the Treaty of Medina del Campo.

In 1492 he was made Bishop of Rochester. In 1496 he was translated to the See of London and in 1501 was named Archbishop of York. A courtier by nature, he was present at many of the great ceremonies of the reign, including the creation of Prince Henry (later King Henry VIII) as Duke of York, and the welcome of Catherine of Aragon.
