George Nevill, 1st Baron Latymer (also spelled George Neville, Baron Latimer) (died 30 December 1469), was an English peer.

George Nevill was the fifth son of Ralph de Nevill, 1st Earl of Westmorland, by his second wife Lady Joan de Beaufort, daughter of John of Gaunt, 1st Duke of Lancaster. He succeeded to the Latymer estates on the death of his half-uncle John Nevill, 6th Baron Latimer, in 1430 (see Baron Latimer), and on 25 February 1432 he was summoned to Parliament as Baron Latimer.[1] The question of his right to the title remained a subject of contention between him and the heirs of John Nevill's sister Elizabeth Willoughby. The two families resolved the issue in the reign of Henry VIII, but the Barons Willoughby of Broke are still considered by many to be the de jure Barons Latimer.[2]

Lord Latymer later fought in Scotland in 1436,[3] was a Justice of the Peace for Cumberland in 1437 and admitted to the Privy Council in 1439.

In 1437, Lord Latymer married Lady Elizabeth, daughter of Richard de Beauchamp, 13th Earl of Warwick, by his first wife, Elizabeth Berkeley. [4] They had three children: a daughter who died childless; Henry Nevill, who married Joan Bourchier, daughter of John Bourchier, Lord Berners, and Marjorie Berners; and Thomas Nevill, of Shenstone, Staffordshire. [5].

George Nevill appears to have suffered from some form of dementia in his later years, as he was described as an "idiot," and the guardianship of his lands was given to his nephew, Richard Nevill, Earl of Warwick. [6] George Nevill, Lord Latymer, died on 30 December 1469 and was succeeded in the barony by his grandson Richard, his eldest son Sir Henry Neville having predeceased him by several months, dying at the Battle of Edgecote Moor, 26 July 1469.
