    Elizabeth Tilney, Countess of Surrey (before 1445 - 4 April 1497) was an English heiress, courtier, and the first wife of Thomas Howard, 2nd Duke of Norfolk. She was the mother of Thomas Howard, 3rd Duke of Norfolk. Through her daughter Elizabeth, she was the maternal grandmother of Anne Boleyn, and through her son Edmund, she was the paternal grandmother of Catherine Howard; both queens consort of King Henry VIII. Elizabeth's great-granddaughter was Queen Elizabeth I of England.

    She served as a lady-in-waiting to Queen consort Elizabeth Woodville, and later as Lady of the Bedchamber to the Queen's daughter, Elizabeth of York, consort of King Henry VII of England. She stood as joint godmother to Princess Margaret Tudor at her baptism.

    Elizabeth was commemorated as the "Countess of Surrey" in John Skelton's poem, Garlande of Laurrell, following his visit to the Howard residence of Sheriff Hutton Castle.

    Elizabeth was born at Ashwellthorpe Manor, Norfolk, England, sometime before 1445. She was the daughter and heiress of Sir Frederick Tilney, of Ashwellthorpe, Norfolk, and Boston, Lincolnshire, by his wife Elizabeth Cheney, of Fen Ditton, Cambridgeshire.

    Her father died when she was a young child. Shortly before 1 December 1446.

    Elizabeth's paternal grandparents were Sir Philip Tilney and Isabel Thorpe, and her maternal grandparents were Sir Laurence Cheney of Fen Ditton and Elizabeth Cockayne, widow of Sir Philip Butler. Elizabeth Cockayne was the daughter of Sir John Cockayne, Chief Baron of the Exchequer and Ida de Grey. Ida was a daughter of Welsh Marcher Lord Reginald Grey, 2nd Baron Grey de Ruthyn and Eleanor Le Strange of Blackmere. Through her mother, Ida was a direct descendant of Welsh Prince Gruffydd II ap Madog, Lord of Dinas Bran and his wife Emma de Audley.

    Elizabeth was co-heiress to the manors of Fisherwick and Shelfield in Walsall, Staffordshire by virtue of her descent from Roger Hilary, Chief Justice of the Common Pleas who had died in 1356.

    In about 1466, Elizabeth married her first husband Sir Humphrey Bourchier, the son and heir of John Bourchier, 1st Lord Berners and Margery Berners. The marriage produced a son John Bourchier, 2nd Lord Berners and two daughters. Following her marriage, Elizabeth went to court where she served as Lady-in-waiting to Queen consort Elizabeth Woodville, whose train she had carried at the latter's coronation in May 1465 at Westminster Abbey. Elizabeth was close to the Queen; she accompanied her and the latter's children into sanctuary at Westminster Abbey, when King King Edward IV had been ousted from the throne, and she was present at the birth of the future King Edward V. She remained with the Queen until King Edward was restored to power.

    Sir Humphrey, who was heir to the title of Baron Berners, was killed at the Battle of Barnet on 14 April 1471 fighting on the Yorkist side.

    Elizabeth married her second husband, Thomas Howard on 30 April 1472.The marriage had been arranged by King Edward IV. In 1475, Elizabeth inherited her father's property of Ashwellthorpe Manor. Her husband, Thomas was a close friend and companion of Richard, Duke of Gloucester who was crowned King of England in 1483. Elizabeth was one of Queen Anne Neville's high-ranking attendants at Richard's coronation, while her husband bore the Sword of State. On 22 August 1485, Thomas's father John Howard, 1st Duke of Norfolk was killed at the Battle of Bosworth while fighting for Richard III; like his son, John was also one of King Richard's dearest friends. Thomas, who had been created Earl of Surrey on 28 June 1483, was wounded in the battle and imprisoned in the Tower of London for several years, his right to ascend to the dukedom of Norfolk being forfeit. He would not gain the title until 1514. After his Earldom and estates were restored to him, he continued in the service of the Tudor king Henry VII. In November 1487, Thomas and Elizabeth attended the coronation of Henry's consort Elizabeth of York, who appointed Elizabeth a Lady of the Bedchamber. Elizabeth was further honoured by being asked to stand as joint godmother to the Princess Margaret Tudor at her baptism in late 1489.

    Elizabeth's second marriage produced nine children including Thomas Howard, 3rd Duke of Norfolk, Elizabeth Howard, mother of Anne Boleyn, and Lord Edmund Howard, father of Catherine Howard.

    Elizabeth Tilney died on 4 April 1497 and was buried in the nun's choir of the Convent of the Minoresses outside Aldgate. In her will, she left money to be distributed to the poor of Whitechapel and Hackney. She never held the title of Duchess of Norfolk. Four months after her death, Thomas married secondly, her cousin Agnes Tilney, by whom he had eight more children.

    Elizabeth's granddaughters included not only Catherine Howard and Anne Boleyn, but also three of Henry VIII's mistresses Elizabeth Carew, Mary Boleyn and, allegedly, Mary Howard, duchess of Richmond and Somerset[10]. During the reign of Henry VIII, the Howards, led by Elizabeth's son, the 3rd Duke of Norfolk, became the premier family of England.
