Philip le Despenser, 2nd Baron le Despenser

Philip le Despenser, 2nd Baron le Despenser (c.1365 in Nettlestead, Suffolk, England – 20 June 1424) was the son and heir of Philip le Despenser, 1st Baron le Despenser.[1] Philip was aged 36 and more at the death of his father Philip le Despenser in 1401,[1] having been knighted in 1385.

He married Elizabeth de Tibetot, co-heiress and daughter of Robert Tiptoft, 3rd Baron Tibetot and his wife Margaret Deincourt. By this marriage he inherited the manors of Nettlestead and Barrow among others.
