 Edmund (Edward) Neville-Westmoreland was the 7th Earl of Westmorland and the last Neville as an Earl of Westmorland.  He was appointed by King James I, as the 7th Earl of Westmorland, when his cousin Charles Neville, 6th Earl of Westmorland died on Nov 16, 1601 in Flanders.  Edmund fled England with his mistress, Francelliana Townsend in 1612 where he later died in 1630 in Flanders, following almost identical footsteps of his cousin, Charles Neville, the 6th Earl of Westmorland.

Notes for Thomas Neville Westmoreland:
Thomas Neville Westmoreland was born in Milburn, North of Appleby-in-Westmorland County (Now known as Cumbria County, England).  On December 29, 1624 the "Earldom" of Westmorland passed from the Neville Family to the Fane Family when Sir Francis Fane was appointed as the 1st (Fane) Earl Of Westmoreland - Based partly on the fact that Charles Neville and Edmund Neville, the 6th and 7th Earl of Westmoreland, both fled England in disgrace.  Thomas Neville of Milburn felt in dishonor and reacted by changing his name to Westmoreland, the County in which he was born.  His son James, at the age of 17 left home and sailed for America, landing in Boston, Mass., moving on south to Virginia where he settled down and married and had a son named John.  His son, Thomas, remained in Milburn, Westmorland County, England.  There were many branches of the Neville Family who retained the name of Neville and they, with their descendants, remained and continue to live in England today.
